Yes, I know, it isn’t Monday. But we could all use a midweek pick-me-up, right? Absolutely.
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. A friend of mine, Christie from Costa Christina, shared an article from the New York Times titled, “Follow a Career Passion? Let it Follow You,” written by Cal Newport.
Let’s jump right to the end.
Newport wrote at the close of the article, “To other young people who constantly wonder if the grass might be greener on the other side of the occupational fence, I offer this advice: Passion is not something you follow. It’s something that will follow you as you put in hard work to become valuable to the world.”
Work so hard that your passion develops naturally. Find your niche, strive to be better, develop endless possibilities and become valuable to the world.
Nothing is guaranteed in this life. You have to make it happen.
