A setback is not always so, you see.
Well, because you are learning along the way.
Every time you stumble is an opportunity to grow.
So I would say you should ignore passion, and focus your purpose.
Just keep moving toward it.
An everything pushes you towards your fate.
I think it’s beautiful, in a way, if you think about it.
“You are unique, and there is a purpose to your uniqueness. You must see every setback, failure, or hardship as a trial along the way, as seeds that are being planted for further cultivation, if you know how to grow them. No moment is wasted if you pay attention and learn the lessons contained in every experience. By constantly applying yourself to the subject that suits your inclinations and attacking it from many different angles, you are simply enriching the ground for these seeds to take root. You may not see this process in the present, but it is happening. Never losing your connection to your Life’s Task, you will unconsciously hit upon the right choices in your life.”
