You’re Not Meant To Do What You Love. You’re Meant To Do What You’re Good At.

Wrong.

“you are not meant to do what you love” - says who ? No, seriously, who is in charge to decide what’s good for people ? You ? Scientists ? God ? Some secret book of world rules that only the chosen ones have access to ?

The idea of doing “what you love” is the assumption that when you do smth that you love you will become *good at it* after a while because you were putting time/energy/dedication/education in it.

My whole life the SOLE ground for deciding what to approach next has ALWAYS been what i was interested in doing or loved to do - and NEVER if i was just happen to be good at something.Because after a while, i would become good at doing something anyway, because i LOVED doing it.

Contrary to the OP’s theory i am of the opinion there is no better reason to start something (and be good at it) than because you LOVE doing something.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
