It is important that passion is taken into account in the equation, whether an individual is considering starting a small business or changing career paths. While features such as strong values, talent, ambition, intellect, discipline, persistence, and luck all contribute to business and career success, the greatest difference can often be made by following your passion.
If enthusiasm and passion are present, when they encounter barriers, individuals tend to be more resilient. Instead of just “in it for the money,” people who are passionate about what they do tend to be people who have more positive perspectives and are able to overcome difficulties through problem-solving.
Also, the more passionate someone is about their job, the more they are inclined to work hard on self-improvement, increasing their chances of success.
Today we will talk about a guy who has turned his passion into his profession.
Manie Singh was born into a Punjabi Sikh family on February 23rd in Amritsar, Punjab, and his roots have profoundly affected his musical theory. He grew up in Kolkata and graduated from the College of the Bhawanipur Education Society and then went to study music in Delhi and Mumbai. It was also in Mumbai that, in 2012, he received his SAE Institute Music Production diploma. He has experience in semi-classical music under the leadership of Late Pt. Hari Charan Verma (Rajasthan and Jaipur Gharana). He has visited and lived throughout his life in several Indian cities, the cultures of which have profoundly influenced him and his music.
When he first heard the voice that stole the hearts of millions of people, the iconic “Kinna Sohna Tenu Rabb Ne Banaya” by Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab and “Tere Bin Nai Lagda Dil mera Dholna” his passion for music was ignited.
He came to the industry with the goal of launching his music compositions and got a break with T-Series, who praised his work and gave him the opportunity to release his first single from T-Series Aankhon Se (2014). He has been the singer and music composer of many fan favorites during his career, including Crazy (2014) again released on T-Series, Tang Lang Lang (2015) released on Saga Hits, and Oh Celina (2017) released by Zee Music Group. He also collaborated with Vishal Dadlani and Neeti Mohan on the album Udd Jaa Re, released in 2016 by Being Indian Music. Farmaan is his latest big achievement in terms of popularity which was released in 2020 in the Covid times. Amidst, he also got a break as a Music Director and Sound Designer for a short film “Love Birds” featuring Adhyayan Suman and Sneha Singh, Directed by Kushal Srivastava where he also featured as a Singer/Composer for the song “Pai Gai Bhasudi”.
His greatest challenge in life was when he decided to turn his passion into his profession. He has faced many ups and downs and is still looking for his stable spot in the industry.
Talking about his strength, he says; his family and his Waheguru are his ultimate pillars of strength. They have always supported him in Music and have always helped him in taking critical decisions and battle all the obstacles in life.
His strength also lies in his creativity and his ability to always have a unique approach to music-making. Instead of following a common path, he always tries to make something new that is out of the box.
Someone who is so much dedicated towards his work, fate definitely gives him fruitful results and we wish the same for Manie.
