Passion is Not Commitment

What does everybody say when they go into a job interview?

“I’m so passionate about XYZ and that will make me a good candidate for (INSERT COMPANY HERE).”

That doesn’t work for me.

Why? Because it isn’t true. Passion doesn’t lead to commitment and it never has.

It’s the other way around. When you make a commitment to something, it means you’re setting a goal. You’re telling yourself, “I am willing to do this and sacrifice that.” By making a commitment, you’re recognizing that there is a certain level you have not yet attained, but want to reach. And, when you have these goals, you will develop a passion for said goal.

I say this because not everything that you commit to is something that you want. Take the workplace, for example. You have probably been handed a project that was really important, but that you did not find enjoyable. Instead of blowing it off, you made a commitment to getting it done, knowing that doing to would lead to some sort of benefit for you. And in that process, you become passionate about your goal; passionate about your commitment.

Love it or hate it, you must bring commitment to everything that you do if you plan to succeed.

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
