Which defines passion as any great, strong, powerful emotion especially towards things like, career, romantic love, or hate.
To build around this definition on one side is to say that passion is anything you love to do and without having to struggle to get it done.
Society now is focused on making money and has disregarded any other thing that is not related to making money, people being in hustling up, hustle pays without trying to define the type f passion driving them into such hustle
Even though one could actually make money from these ignored things. So, the pressure is on the shoulders of the new generation of youths to make money
