If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.

-Benjamin Franklin-

What if you were told not to follow your passion, rather to bring it alongside with you? Countless motivational speakers, successful people and even our parents tell us to follow our passion. Could they all be wrong?

Mike Rowe, from the show Dirty Jobs shares a story with us about missed opportunity, explaining how our happiness does not always depend of the type of job we perform. He shares a story of a Septic Tank Entrepreneur who became financially successful and did so because the market was untapped, not because it was his passion!

Mike expands this line of thinking with his new book, Profoundly Disconnected : A True Confession From Mike Rowe By Mike Rowe

Mike continues to tell us that many awesome opportunities are available to us while we are still discovering and nurturing our passion. Don’t pass those up! They could help you make a great living, support your family, support your community and even finance your ultimate passions.  Check out this video and you could be open to a different perspective.
