Follow Your Passion - Rishabh Datta

Follow your passion

So many people question me, is it that easy to follow your passion? Yes! Of course, it’s very easy. I’ve noticed that many people usually go after the people who are successful but this isn’t the right way to follow. You should always listen to your heart and listen very patiently.

Let me tell you a story about following your passion and turning it into a successful empire. A very good friend of mine (Neha), she loved shopping and her dad was into liquor business. They were financially sound but still her dad felt that she is going a bit too far with her shopping ideas. And her shopping bills were extremely exceeding day by day.

During the visit to Goa, she was wearing a beautiful bracelet that she had picked up in Jaipur. There a friend of her fell in love with that and insisted that she sell it to her and she sold that at a very good price. This deal gave her a idea and when she came back home she made a plan to travel all over the world and she started picking few small things from everywhere. And she started selling them all at a decent price. She was literally following her passion and her passion for shopping took her to another level. After few months, she organized a sale for the items she was carrying and it was bumper hit.

She was just following her passion and started earning and now she is making her dad proud. This is how following your passion can give you life changing experiences. Now she is helping her dad in his business too.


Well now so many students generally ask me that they aren’t been able to decide that what stream should they opt for right now. And I’ve no reply to those students because I know if I will tell them to go for it, and in case of disliking they’re going to curse me. So I always mention, just go for few demo classes and study about various things and check whether you’re liking it or not. There you’ll get an idea about your passion and you can easily redirect your mind as per your matter of interest. For me that’s the only way out for the students in order to choose the field of their interest.

I always wanted to be a CA and reason for that is one of my dad’s friends whom I was following since childhood. He was dam rich and his lifestyle made me realize that I’m going for CA no matter what. But when I completed my 10th and scored good marks in science so I started sitting in Non-Medical classes. Again I was drifting away from my passion and I started preparing for chemistry and Physics. One day when my class teacher asked me what exactly you want to become, I replied that I want to be a CA. after that he guided me that I should go for commerce classes and it would be easy for me. After 2 months I shifted my field again but after finishing my 12th with commerce I felt I’m not meant for this. I went for few computer classes and I felt this is what I was looking for. After that along with, I started my software engineering classes and occupied myself for the entire day. After that I went for MBA in IT and completed the Microsoft Certification (MCTS). That was perfect for me and now I’ve started my own development firm and I’m following my passion by developing few websites and softwares.

After all the educational stuff, there was something that was missing. I’ve become a software engineer but still I feel blogging was there in my blood. And I was writing few things and then I was destroying. So finally, I’m so glad that I managed all these things whatever my heart used to allow me. So that’s a small message to all of you to follow your heart and no matter you’re getting the success or not. Once the passion will become your profession, you’ll automatically reach on top.
