You Will Fail to Have a Great Career

Larry Smith makes a comedic stab at the excuses that we have in today’s world for not pursing our passions, and therefore failing to have a great career.

I was with him for most of it except for the one towards the end. It’s not fair to say that having a family, raising a family, can’t be a dream and passion in itself. I think it’s perfectly fine to say to your child, “Go ahead, and pursue your passion. Just like I did, raising you to be the person that you are today.”

Of course one can purse a passion and be a great parent. But it’s not fair to assume that one who says they would rather focus on their family than their career to be called afraid of pursing their passion.
