  1. You have to be passionate about what you choose. Some people are passionate about money and a particular lifestyle. So they choose a profession that will get them that. I have a good friend who I went to university with. His parents wanted him to become a doctor. And so, he went to med school after college. Then he trained in Detroit and he heads a substance abuse unit in a large hospital in a metropolitan area. But his true passion is film. So, he saves up all his money and splurges it on producing indie films.

    • Now , thats another way to pursue your passion , being financially stable , you can experiment & you can also take care of your responsibilities of your family.
      I am glad he didnt forget about his passion along his journey.
