This is so true! True because it is what we “think” we like. It is the idea of something we like and it is what draws us towards it. However, how we feel when it actually happens is a whole different ball game. Eg — I liked the idea of being a mixed martial arts fighter. But nobody told me how hard it would it. Every day the training almost kills me. That’s the difference between perception and reality. The excruciating pain and hard work.
Love the passion is a theory, try it out bit. ☺
