A lot of people were very successful in their occupation since they have a good background from education either in colleges or universities. But there are also many people have the success without academic education. Therefore, I believe that if you have an intense passion to do something, you will be succeeded.
Passion is a source of motivation. When you do something you love, you will never feel tired about it, and even if you feel tired you will never complain about it. Everyone have their own field of passion. For example, some people hate animals, but some like to rear dogs or cats at home without any complain and tired.
Besides as a source of motivation, your passion will also work as a constructive excuse for you. You are just doing for your passion. You like to do it and you will do it even you don’t have any benefits from it. Although you waste a lot of time and money, you will still feel happy to do it.
When you do something you love, most likely you will never give up. For example, if a student peruses a Bachelor’s degree he will never give his studies even if he doesn’t have enough money or he has to earn for his living…
I believe that if you have an intense passion to do something, you will be succeeded in that field. Passion will help you have more motivation, doing thing without condition and help you never give up what you are doing. So do something you love and live with your passion.
