“Even with a passion identified, there is a common pitfall. Some people find their passion, and then relying on no more than popular opinion, they dismiss the passion as one that “cannot be turned into a livelihood.” And they move on to try to find a second, more practical love. That is not necessarily a bad choice since one could certainly have more than one love.
But before you look for a second love, you should creatively examine whether your first found love could support a career. Research the experiences of those who have found ways to pursue such livelihoods. Never take conventional wisdom as anything other than folklore, to be tested against your logic and experiences.
Remember that passion is necessary for a great career, but it is not sufficient. There’s no magic here. Success also demands persistence, focus, discipline, independence of mind, resourcefulness, experimentation and high creativity.” — Larry Smith
