You have passion. You have talent. But do you have passion for the thing you are talented at?
If the answer is yes, I can almost guarantee that you will live a life filled with enormous success and happiness.
Unfortunately, for the vast majority of people, their passion and their talent are divorced from one another. Too many people have a passion for something they are not very good at and too many have innate talents at doing things they have zero passion for. And that’s too bad.
Yes you can become rich and successful if you spend your entire life honing your talents. And yes you can become happy if you spend your entire life engaged in activities you are passionate about.
But in order to be successful and happy, you need both. When you marry your passion with your talent, work becomes play.
At the intersection of passion and talent is success and happiness.
