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

What qualifies you to write this? Are you a psychologist, or an economist? Why don’t you provide any statistical or sociological data to support the points you make? And as far as being good at something, you still require training, and you still have to get through that training. For example, you present yourself as a writer, but the first four words of your essay tell me you are either a poor proofreader, or not a classically trained writer. Which is fine — 99% who scroll back up after reading this will find nothing wrong. But it demonstrates that being good at something or having a talent for something isn’t necessarily a reason to go into that field of work, because without passion, you will have little motivation to improve or expand. On the other hands, our passion often leads us to become better at the skill we are passionate about than the one we are originally predisposed to.

By the way, you are far from the first to write a very similar blog post/editorial. I’m only mentioning that because the idea has been around for a long time, yet has not caught on, and kids are still asked, “what do you WANT to be when you grow up?”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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