23KP began creating her own melodies and writing her own lyrics at the early age of just 12 years. She never thought of becoming a real singer until her 20’s. Side by side with her studies, 23KP grew up learning musical instruments, singing, making unbelievable melodies, poetry, tracks and finally decided to pursue music as her profession.

Among the traits and abilities that lead to success, passion stands alone. Unlike skill, knowledge, or other factors, passion is innate: it can’t be learned or acquired but is always present. Passion, an overwhelming drive to reach one’s goals, is the one factor that unites all successful people in equal measure. It will be hard for you to give up on something when you are passionate because you won’t care about the results. You’ll only care about doing your thing, and you’ll do it even when you don’t get the desired results she said.

If you want to really be passionate, then you have to be determined to learn everything there is to know about your passion and to continue to gain knowledge and know that there is always more to learn. “The people I have seen achieve the greatest success in their professional and personal lives are passionate people that lead, support, and mentor others with that ‘zeal and zest’ for the work and people. A person with passion typically exudes confidence, and confidence creates value for themselves and others by leading the way, not showing the way,” he explains. Professionals who are confident are great leaders and earn the respect and confidence of others she explains.

According to 23KP passion makes you work more hours because it makes you obsessed with your work. You’ll want to work whenever you find time because you love your work. Besides this, when you are passionate, you’ll work long hours because you won’t be able to tell the difference between work and play. For you, working will be playing. When you’re passionate, you make those around you feel excited – and everyone wins. “A person who exudes passion creates group dynamics and value, not dissension. Professionals who are passionate maximize the energy of the team and are viewed as great mentors,”

One of the main reasons is that when you feel passionate about what you are doing, and what you want to achieve, you will take the necessary intentional actions to make your goals a reality. Without that passion for whatever it is you’re trying to pursue, you’re more likely to quit when you encounter a challenge or face a problem. However, when you’re passionate about your goals, you’re more likely to adopt a success mindset and overcome or reframe the challenging situation.

Passion means different things to different people, and in success it is far from the whole story. However, for any of us, passion does begin with appreciating what we have in life, doing things for others and understanding that if today isn’t perfect, there is always another one coming tomorrow she quoted.
