What is it? How do I get it? Am I born with it? Ask yourself this. Is there something I wake up and go to bed thinking about every single day and no matter what I’m doing it’s always at the forefront of my thoughts? If the answer is yes and you’re uncertain of how to begin your journey of pursuit — just start. 30 minutes a day after your first or second job, you set that timer and do the work.

When you find joy in pursuing your passion relentlessly and you do it for no other reason than emotional gratification, then you have found what fuels you. At that point, you keep going. You keep learning about your passion. The payoff will come and it isn’t always in monetary form. Sure, it’s important but the value of true happiness is priceless.
