People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you are doing. It's totally true and the reason is ... because it's so hard, that if you don't have passion, any rational person would give up. It's really hard. And you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don't love it, if you are not having fun doing it, you are going to give up. And that's what happens to most people actually. If you really look at ones that ended up being "successful" in eyes of society and ones that didn't, oftentimes, the successful ones loved what they did so they could persevere when things got really tough. And the ones that didn't love it, quit. Because they are sane. Who would want to put up with this stuff if you don't love it? So it's a lot of hard work. So if you don't love it, you are going to fail. You gotta love it. You gotta have passion.
