"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do."
And that is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Find what you love and you have found your career.
The key is to find what you love and go from there.
With me it was computer programming. Now it is writing. Somehow the writing hasn't turned out to be quite as prosperous.
But it do bring in money every month.
Fantastic quote. Yes, writing is difficult and requires a constructive use of time, effort, and energy. HubPages has exceptionally high standards which sets mediocrity apart from excellence, or vice versa.
This is so true. Many people want to be successful but are loathe to strategize & put in the time to achieve their goals. They feel that success is easy but it ISN'T. They want to exert the minimum effort possible yet want success. GO FIGURE.
I dont know about the success part; and some people do get lucky breaks and the doors open, just like Bill Gates. But with anything you strive for, it takes years and years of effort and application. Doing what you enjoy doing helps a lot to stay motivated. Finding what you love may not ever make money though. Then it becomes a hobby and stays that way.
Realistic quote Kenna. Many thanks.
"HubPages is a network of sites where people write about their passions!"

Do you believe you can work AND love what you do every day?Are you doing what you love to do or is work a dreaded task? If it is a dreaded task, why do you continue to do it? Is it possible to work and love what you do? Is fulfilling work only a reality for a select percentage of the population?
