12 Things No One Tells You About Passion

12 Things No One Tells You About Passion


The word passion elicits powerful and overwhelming feelings. I believe that no single sentence can describe fully what it is. You have to experience passion to know exactly what it is:

“It is obvious that we can no more explain a passion to a person who has never experienced it than we can explain light to the blind.” – T.S. Elliot

I think its one of the most misused words and if you ask around, not everyone really gets what it is. At the heart of it, it boils down to strong feelings and emotions for something or someone to a level that it is one step short of an obsession.

Many accomplished folks who were passionate about what they did described what they thought this simple yet powerful word meant. I tried to decipher what passion really is and my conclusion was that is what it is to the individual experiencing it.
