I think there’s too much emphasis placed on learning things by rote that you don’t really care about. So what happens to students in school is that they eventually lose interest in learning, because they’ve been forced to learn the required courses, rather than pursing their passion~Jack Canfield

What is it that you like doing? If you don’t like it, get out of it, because you’ll be lousy at it. You don’t have to stay with a job for the rest of your life, because if you don’t like it you’ll never be successful in it.   ~Lee Iacocca

If you want to be successful in a particular field of endeavor, I think perseverance is one of the key qualities. It’s very important that you find something that you care about, that you have a deep passion for, because you’re going to have to devote a lot of your life to it.  ~George Lucas

To have passion, to have a dream, to have a purpose in life. And there are three components to that purpose, one is to find out who you really are, to discover God, the second is to serve other human beings, because we are here to do that and the third is to express your unique talents and when you are expressing your unique talents you lose track of time.  ~Deepak Chopra

    It is true but unfortunately life is unfair. Sometimes people don’t have the luxury to pursue their dreams.

    Ideally, that’s how it should be. But sadly, many people have to cling to their unsatifying job because they simply have no options due to financial commitments or some other reasons.

    But (also) sadly… many people use reasons like “this job is actually not my choice” to be mediocre in their work.
