There is a lot of material out there that says , just follow your passion…
There are some that are fortunate to have found their passion from age 3 ,They always knew they would be doing for the rest of their lives.

-Find out what really resonates or does not resonate and move you closer to your passion.
-You will learn a new skill
-You become a creator not only a consumer
