I am touched by people with passion and ended up writing one about myself, publishing it on LinkedIn.
Everyone demands a great pay cheques but are you getting it?
Make passion a part of your daily pay cheques. Do what you felt like doing everyday. Even the tiniest little thing counts.
What is passion? I think passion is a strong feeling, intuition that make you work (with or without pay) towards that direction. It needs not necessary pay back monetary but when you get recognition over what you are doing, it is the best pay cheques. Think of musicians and artists as an example. How many of these people are well paid? They still do what they like or enjoy, full time or part time.
Passion is not something that fade easily over time. Passion, when forgotten knows how to revisit your mind with that burning flame that pushes you towards your dream or your goal.
I love food for their nourishment (nutrients), providing satiety and connecting people. Eating is a pleasure that everyone deserve. I work towards food science and food marketing to spread love for foods and creating value for food products. I faced endless challenges but looking back, I am gaining experience and exposure to the industry; and that is most valuable.
I still remembered my first internship that brought together most of the puzzle pieces that I learned from school. It was shocking but that busy term of my last year, I felt like I am inspired and that I go to school for something.
Find your passion and let your pay cheques came in the form of emotional comfort, even the little things that make you felt to wake up everyday to experience the world.
Food is a part of my pay cheques for living each day and I am so blessed.
