Overcome the Fear to Follow your passion
Does your instinct push you to something and mind scares you for the same? I believe deep down, each one of us is deep rooted with a passion for something or the other. But what comes along, is the fear to follow it, to work for it and take it to another level. Well, in spite of fear taking the charge massively, you own a strong instinct, a voice within that has the strength to overcome all the fears to follow your Passion.
“Don’t ever let someone tell you that you can’t do something. Not even me. You got a dream, you got to protect it. When people can’t do something themselves, they’re going to tell you that you can’t do it. You want something, go get it”- PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS
Has the work that you are into, fascinated you right from the beginning? Has something ever, other than your work for living, occupied your mind but taken a back seat? This might be a state but underrated! You might have had a fascination for a thing while growing up but not turned up living it.
You might be into a piece of work that your qualification has prepared you to, but not certainly you. It might have made you efficient over the years, but still not confident.
Confidence of the thought “This is what I had always wanted to do”.
I’ll talk for myself. Taking a career of choice still leaves me to think something else. Something that makes a difference to the World. My job serves Human welfare. But I still do not feel it, to a level that my work will be remembered. That if I leave, it will have an impact. A feeling that it will take a single day to replace me and it will go as routine. But then the feeling is not about hating my work, it’s about a quest for something else where my heart is. Something that is more than just earning currencies.
This might hit you too. If it does, keep reading!
There will be something that your instinct will keep pushing you to. Your fascination for your passion will knock you over and over again to give a kick start. It will always be your take on it, to jump and get into action or continue to sit back with the fear.
Taking up your passion to another level, after investing quite a length of time on something that earns you bread will not be easy. Your notion about being busy and cribbing for time will always keep you aloof from the Passion. This is when, the planning to work for your Passion will be postponed to the Uncertain Tomorrows.
The wake up calling says, “It will demand you squeezing and utilizing the so called Free Time that never existed in your mind but certainly in your routine”. This is the Time to be explored and worked upon, taking the baby steps towards your Passion.
Once you have decided to take it up, it’s going to be a whole new process. Taking passion as your work will come along with its ebbs and flows. Your job has taken years of your education to give that handful revenue. It would be irrational to expect your Passion “An Instant Wonder”. Price will come along to make it worth and certainly of value.
To firmly decide to work for your passion is going to be the first threshold of the journey. Your decision might make you confident to showcase your work to the world, but then world will frighten you showing the masterpieces around. You will be flooded with the picture of perfection around, that it will almost make you dump your passion out of fear.
Yes, the World is jam packed with brilliance but that will certainly not outcast you. It has a place for all. You do not have to push or replace anyone to take hold of that place. What’s needed is, a Willing Wish, to work for your passion no matter what the price it comes along. Cosmos says “Your wish is my command”. It’s you who need to paint the wish with the colors of your Passion and make it a Masterpiece.
It might have been a hobby or just an inclination towards anything back then, where it was beautifully praised. Now when you think of taking it to the forefront, it will be come along with judgement and criticisms. This sounds like adding more fear to follow your Passion. Relax! The judgement is not there to kill your passion. To outshine in the crowd of millions, it’s the judgment that will acknowledge you your areas of improvement, making you climb the ladder and refine you.
A little when you have decided to go ahead with your Passion, another big thing that will come up targeting you will be “What if I don’t turn up great”. This is fierce but it’s merely a frightening imagination seeing the effortless great work around when you have actually not dived in. You will be terrified by the competitors around, and they may manage to put your idea at halt even before you come into the real play. These involuntary fearful thoughts will keep attacking you. But that’s all very fine.
The universe is not short of giving credits, it’s you to work for them. Keep the fear aloof, work on things that will carve your way and then the journey is a guide itself.
The world is your oyster. It’s up to you to find the pearls.
The one very strong thing that you are blessed with, the Instinct, your gut for anything you feel you are capable of! It can make you overcome all the fears to follow your Passion. Perceive it as a Seed, sow it with your belief, water it with your dedication and see it germinate. The point when you dive in will be enthusiastic, the process will be the hardest, and seeing it working out finally will be a big pay off in the end.
So now when you are up with spirits, high with passion and filtered all the doubts and fears, you are ready to kick the ball in a game you had always wanted to play. But still the Winning thing will undoubtedly not be at hand. A heap of you start and a bunch of you succeed in spite of working rigorously. It’s not the lack of caliber; it’s simply the growing fear and dimming fire when you start the game without planning and thorough learning. There is an order for everything that aim to reach heights. The following 8 steps might help you to work for your passion in an ordered manner:
- The firm decision to get started irrespective of your time constraints.

Having overcome the fear to follow your passion with a firm decision, situations will emerge when coping up with hindrances, public opinions and drooping morale will still be hard. But then just hang on with the belief on your instinct and efforts. These are the test of times that will judge you for your perseverance. Cosmos has bestowed you with all the attributes to prove your instinct. Identify them and trust them. They are the auspicious powers that will surmount all your fears.
I hope if you are the one who has been thinking and planning since long to give your passion a kick start, just burn your doubts and you are bang on. Hit the world with your zeal, it’ll be a treat to self.
