You’re Not Meant to Do What You Love
Brianna Wiest

I love this sentiment, but I would word it differently. Sure, talent is inherent, but only to a certain point. You still had to work hard to become a good writer.

I would say, “You’re not meant to do what you love, you’re meant to do what you’re good at. It is up to you to become good at what you love, so that you can do that.”

There are things I am good at that I could have done for a living that I did not love. Instead, I sacrificed and worked hard at becoming good at what I love and now that’s what I do. We should not be limited by what we’re good at, only by what we are willing to work hard to achieve. Neither passion nor talent will take you as far as putting in the work will.
