For passion seekers by passionate people

There is something extremely valuable and inspiring in other people's passion discovery stories. It's like finding a piece of puzzle for your own journey in each of them.

I decided to find 100 of them over the next year. I'll be posting at least one interview weekly on ONREI. Follow us on FB to get notified and if you have a story to share, get in touch.

My Passion

is to fully enjoy the atmosphere and get something from the cosmic vibration. I put a part of it in the music. That’s when I find something like: ,love like mine is so hard to find...' (he sings).

My Passion:

I’m going to sound a bit cheesy, but life and the thousand of opportunities at hands passionate me. I’ve always struggled to make choices fearing that it would prevent me from exploring all the rest.

by Daniel Jordi

My Passion:

It's not an easy question to answer, as it's not one specific thing. One of the things I love the most is connecting and helping people connect. That has always been my passion and it still is today. And I believe it'll always be. It's basically who I am. My key values are: connection, impact and freedom. I love connecting with people from an inspired place. The way it feels authentic and not persuasive.

My Passion:

I’m passionate about self-discovery, Riri Jewellery, Chess and riding bikes (novice). Actually, most of what I do is for me to understand more about the creature within. I love finding out which boundaries I can push and/ or how I would react to different people and circumstances.

My Passion:

Kickboxing. I absolutely love the intensity of this sport and the way it is challenging me both physically and mentally. It has taught me a lot about myself: it made me more aware of my strengths and weaknesses, it gave me courage and self confidence. But at the same time it kept me humble.

My Passion:

I don't know. Do I have a passion? :) The thing is that for me it's not one thing and it changes. There are points in my life when I dedicate a lot of time to specific things. They change the way I think or the way I see things, interact. Now, it's wine. I like the story, the art piece of it. Before it was martial arts, painting, working with wood. I could call it passions but it seems too strong of a word.

My Passion:

My passion is to portray the beauty of the tribal lifestyle, especially the relation between mothers and their babies in the various mediums of Art: either painting on paper or canvas or sculpting in wood, stone, terracotta or in bronze… my favourite medium.

My Passion:

My passion is rhythmic gymnastics. I used to be a professional gymnast and after more than 10 years I have “retired” and I opened my own club in Zagreb, Croatia. I became a trainer and now, 6 years later, I couldn’t be more happy. I do what I love.

My Passion:

I am passionate about telling the world about the growth in Africa. I research, report and anchor business news. It fascinates me, because it makes a difference, as many investors use media to inform their decision making process.

My Passion:

Music has always possessed the power to bring out different feelings in me: happiness, fear, joy, calm, even sadness. It's the ability to evoke emotions that makes music probably the most powerful way to express feelings. It fascinated me to the point that I didn’t want just to listen to music, I wanted to embrace it, study it, I needed to compose it.

My Passion:

I paint, draw and do photography. When I paint I feel whole. Creative work has a beautiful sense of wonder in itself. You stop and look at things and people around you and capture them in a new way that is compelling to you. It is an amazing feeling. It makes me feel alive.

by Lukasz Bartosik

My Passion:

What is my passion? A simple question that I’m trying to answer for the last 30 minutes… I’ve actually started wondering whether I have one.

My Passion:

One of my greatest passions is the ocean and freediving. Freediving enables you to enjoy the ocean in a very intimate way with marine life who will approach you very closely and with great curiosity. Freediving for depth is a different and personal challenge altogether, however these days my focus would be on enjoying the ocean with animals, particularly sharks.

I wanted to share with you my observation after reading the first 10 stories of passionate people.

 

First of all, as Selim concluded: finding your passion is like finding love. For some it comes at first sight. And although this might be the way we all imagine passion discovery, it's actually not that common. Most of us are gradually drawn into it, like falling in love. It might not always seem like the one at the beginning, but with time you grow that confidence. One is for sure: most often it finds you when you stop looking.

My Passion:

I’m passionate about empowering dignity, healing, and self­sustainability for orphaned children, for women and girls who are survivors of gender based violence, and for boys and young men who are at risk of becoming perpetrators of violence.

by Senem Tongar

My Passion:

Travelling is my passion because for me seeing the world with your own eyes and from a different perspective is priceless.
