For many millennials freshly acquainted with the new working class and finding ourselves in jobs that are not exactly what we want to be doing, I dare you to allow yourself to fail. I have recently gone on the interview trail, and many of the older and higher up individuals within companies say that it is their “life” and that what they are doing has becomes their life work. We are not our parents generation that mainly accepted career paths and worked them until retirement, we are the one’s that value happiness over traditional thinking.
I want to give props to people that are willing to fail early on and try their best at what makes them happy rather than accept the roles that they took after college. Some of my favorite quotes on the matter are as follows…. Not all of which apply directly to what I am getting at here, but there are many roadblocks in the mind on your way to doing what you truly love. So I prop those like the founder of this website and many like him who choose day in and out to continue on a path that they are setting for themselves instead of falling into one that was set for them by someone else and beginning point a long career of good hard work.
