The Latin root of the word 'passion' (passio) means "to suffer or endure". We often associate passion with success or pleasure. Unfortunately, that rose-coloured version ignores the incredible amount of dedication, perseverance and patience required to actually achieve something real.
That's only one reason that "follow your passion" is terrible advice. Instead, pick something of value and stick with it. #stickwithit #practicewithpurpose #perservere
