Your Job and Your Passion

Your Job and Your Passion.


The Job in question is the principal activity or activities in your life that you do to earn money.

Passion here refers to any object of warm affection or devotion.

Imagine it then when your job becomes your passion. It means that your job becomes an object of warm affection or an object of devotion.

What does this mean? It means a lot.

It means that you will love your job, devote every time to it, and happily do it it with joy. That’s part of what brings long life that you always pray for.

Devotion points to that commitment you give to your job.

Now, when you see medical doctors, lawyers, engineers of whatever caliber, pharmacists, business men and women, teachers, economists,welders, artists, footballers and what have you, what differentiates their mode of operation is passion.

The ones who operate with passion make waves so much more than others because they devote their entire energy of mind and body to their job.

The result is that they are always creative, and new ideas are always on their minds and they passionately execute them, and in the process of execution, what comes out becomes better than they imagined.

If you see one without passion in a particular job, you see no joy, always having time for quarrels and loose people’s affection and trust, never positively creative, redundant, always looking for half measures, etc.

A person with passion always seeks to improve, he or she wants something better. Money is never mainly his or her problem because he or she creatively pursues success which makes money chase him or her pants down.

So, he or she begins to have opportunities and many options at his beck and call. So he or she begins to choose better opportunities and options.

It’s always better to make your passion your job.

But the question is: what’s your passion?


I love human and community development.
