It is rightly said that, ‘If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to build theirs.’ So dear girls, don’t let society define your dreams, just pursue your true passion, follow your heart. And to be honest, you may not always succeed but you will definitely have no regrets. Read on to know some reasons to pursue your true passion…
1. You’ll give your 100%
When you are pursuing your true passion, you would give it your 100% and you wouldn’t mind clocking in those crazy hours due to the love for what you truly want to do! And needless to say, with super hard work, comes super result.
2. No regrets
‘We regret the things that we don’t do, more than the things that we do.’ Heard this before? Well, then you'll know that taking someone else’s advice and making it your life purpose might only lead to broken dreams and regrets. And life is short, so you wouldn’t want to regret anything!
3. So you have crazy stories to tell
And when you are 65 and a grandmother, you will have awesome stories to tell your grandkids! About how you went against the world (*dramatic pause*) and pursued your true passion and encountered so many problems and had an adventurous, challenging life! :D
4. Surprising results
You would be surprised to see your true potential, unleashed in the pursuit of achieving your heartfelt desires. And you may surprise yourself with the kind of extraordinary results that you may achieve! You'll never know if you don't try...
5. SO much happiness
Happiness is where the heart’s true desire lies. So don’t be fooled into thinking that once you are successful (doing something you don’t even enjoy), you will ultimately find happiness. And if you're doing something you love, happiness will follow!
Those who try to please everybody end up pleasing nobody. So break the rules, let yourself free from the shackles of ‘log kya kahenge’ and follow your heart’s path!
7. True passion leads to hard work which leads to success
‘Success ke peeche mat bhago. Kabil bano, kabil. Kambyabi sali jhak maar ke peeche ayegi.’ - 3 Idiots. Need we say more?
8. Greater motivation
When you are following your dreams, you will have greater motivation to follow them through and you won’t give up, even when the going gets tough. No matter how many times you fall or fail, you'll find the courage to get up again. That's just what happens when you're passionate about something!
9. True sense of satisfaction
The pure mental satisfaction that you get from following your true passion is unmatchable. You’ll have no regrets, knowing that you did exactly what you wanted to and that feeling of satisfaction will have a wonderful spillover effect in the other areas of life as well. #HappyVibes
10. Some people don't know what they're talking about
Many times the people offering you advice on what to do and what not to do...are the ones who haven’t made it big in life or have no clue what they're talking about. But you’ve got to realize that even though they mean well, after all, it's your life, your dreams. And take advice only from people who inspire you!
11. Passion > Money
It is true that some careers are more lucrative than others, but no amount of money can buy you happiness! Always remember that girls!
