THE CATALYST: Passion About What You Do is Crucial for Success


By Felix Concepcion Veroya

You have probably heard by now that to be successful you need to find what you are passionate about. It is so much easier for people who are passionate about something to wake up and go to sleep with their work than those who just like what they do.

However, many people do not know the benefits of being passionate about one’s work. For instance, people who are passionate about their work spend less time doing other activities because for them their work is a means to an end, and they are able to accomplish more through their work. On the other hand, those who have no passion spend much of their time on unrelated activities.

The point is that a lot of people do not know the benefits of having passion about what you do because it is practically unheard of these days. However, there are still many people who do know these benefits and yet they choose not to discover it for themselves, or perhaps they never did find out about it in the first place.

For instance, there are many people who do not know the benefits of being passionate about their work because they have never done it before. They like what they do but they have not been able to find out how much better it would be if they were passionate about it. In this article, I will share with you 10 benefits of being passionate about what you do.

People who are passionate about what they do tend to be more interested in other things.
