When choosing between doing something for passion and doing something for money, choose carefully – not only with your brain, but also with your heart.
Doing something you’re passionate about gives you a vision; a dream, if you will, of what you want to be and what you want to accomplish. It’s what makes you want to get out of bed in the mornings, and on days when things are not going your way, of which there will be many when you’re out to achieve something extraordinary.
Passion keeps you going, long after others have quit. Plain money, on the other hand, just lends you an illusion of happiness, leaving you wanting more. Once you’re gone, people are far more likely to remember you for the things you’ve created rather than the money you accumulated.
It’s easier to make money with your passion than to find passion in making money.
