Influence of passion on human development

   Patryk Janczur 1995 LOK /Kraków

In  this article generally I want to tell you about my development and changes, as it leter turns out, passion  has the biggest influence on my personality and on my life.

It started about 3 years ago, that is when I was in secondary school in  the second form. I became friends with weird boy, he was shy and he couldn’t play football, that was very interesting. One day I asked him:
“what are you interested in?”

“ridin my bike, all day all night!”

“just riding?”

“no, it’s just a part of this wild sport He explained.

“So what exactly do you do” – I asked.

“You se, it’s not simple. I will show you.”
And every day , in school, he explained me what it looks like. He showed me his movies of his riding. I was so impressed. (It’s his movie from the previous year)
“It looks so d**n fantastic! Isn’t it dangerous?”

“yeah, it is but that makes it so cool.”
He encouraged to such an extent that I bought an extreme bike and I learned everything step by step.
Today I don’t imagine my world without the bike. It’s like my kid or baby. When I have although some free time, I get on the bike and ride in the nearest skatepark. When I doing it,  the world stops and I just focus on gimmick. Of course my mum always says that it’s too dangerous and she wants me to stop it, but I usually don’t listen to her. I don’t know what other people, without the passion, do in free time.I don’t even want to know cause certainly it’s terribly boring. This thing makes my more patient, persevere, when something doesn’t want to go the right way as it could.

Secondly, I meet a lot of  jaunty, lively people who doing the same thing. We can talking about the bikes or girls all the time. When someone falls, always anyone comes and helps to stand up. We are like a big family with one target, develop our passion.
How does it work for you? Do you have any passion which affects your life?

  1. Hey Patryk,
    I really liked your article about your passion to extreme biking. Reading your text made me think about Basketball the whole time. I mean I haven’t played for that long, yet, though I love the sport and spending all my free time throwing hoops ;)
    Me myself I have a friend, doing dirt biking after school with his friends and I can totally relate his stories to yours: when you mention your mom or your friends.
    The dialogue you put in your text is making the reader much more interested in what you want to tell us and what you want us to get from the story.
    Though, why don’t you write a final sentence about everything you have said, like a little summary. That wouldn’t make the text stop so suddenly ;)

    Keep on living your passion,
    Lara :)
