There are a few points of comparisons between the two variables. Passion is an internal experience while opportunities are external. Passion is in our power to organize while opportunities are afforded us by the hand of fate.
Turns out many people often use the presence or absence of passion as a determiner of what to commit to and what not to give any attention but I do not think it is a smart way to engage. I think that we shouldn’t wait to follow our passion as much as we should take our passion with us and use them to engage all the opportunities that life gives to us.
It’s a surety that when we create an interest in a subject, we will most often become passionate about it over time. Take the opportunities that come your way!
