Passion is your PRIVILEGE

I’ve got something I’d like to share with you.

I realize that many people in this world do not have the opportunity to do what they love, and that the pursuit of you passion is truly a privilege.

One that I will most definitely not take for granted anymore. Especially not after reading this article written by a member of “The Passion Project”

I wanted to write this post because of a specific excerpt from this blog post

“When you are truly living on the edge….there’s no room at all for error. It’s a luxury you can’t afford.”

“For the rest of us, though, there’s a cushion. Being wrong isn’t fatal, it’s merely something we’d prefer to avoid. We have the privilege of being wrong. Not being wrong on purpose, of course, but wrong as a cost on the way to being right.”

I really wanted to speak to this point, that for most of us, being wrong or failing isn’t going to kill us. It isn’t a be all end all. And it isn’t going to be much more than an annoyance or unwanted bump in the road.

But why is that, and that alone, enough to deter us from following our passion?

What’s the big deal with the fear of failing?


If the cost of failing isn’t going to literally kill you, what is it you are so afraid of? Because I can’t think of anything other than excuses (and all of them suck btw) for why you won’t do what it is you actually want to do.

Why you would rather blame others or your situation for the reasons you can’t do what makes you happy. Instead of doing what you need to do, to make those things your reality. If you truly want something, you will stop at nothing to make it happen.

And if you truly don’t want something, you will make every excuse to not make it happen. In both instances, they’re YOUR choice, always remember that.

The point of this post is to help you, and myself, to always look inward. Because its hard to do that. Your actions and decisions have led you to where you are today, and no one else. Looking inward forces you take responsibility for how things are in your life. (your happiness, your career, your relationships, your financial situations) But doing so allows you to address what you don’t like and want to change, and gives you an opportunity to do so.

Looking outward and blaming external things for your situation, is easy. It allows you to redirect responsibility and separates yourself from the decisions you’ve made. 

And though this might be comforting and make you feel better, doing so will never lead you to an opportunity to better your situation, or achieve what you’d like to in life.
