It’s common to hear mentors advise young people to do what they love. I’ve offered that advice myself many times.
- Rejection is painful
- No one loves working long hours while others play
- Failure hurts
The best way to successfully do what you love is to work while others play, get rejected numerous times, and fail forward and faster than others in your field. In a world of unlimited competition, the winners will be separated by mere inches, their level of passion, and the bravery to do what hurts.
Doing what hurts is the key to doing what you love.
Have a great night,
