Great article! I totally agree that passion is something we make. Discovering your passion is what happens when me make one without realizing we’re doing it.
That’s why children are said to be full of passion: because they take what they find interesting and do it over, and over, and over again until they’re skilled at it. Just take a look at any kindergarten paleontologist — they don’t study dinosaurs because they have a passion for them, they have a passion because they have studied everything about dinosaurs they could get their hands on.
