Passion Vs Profit: Should You Go After Your Passion Or Profit?

This is a deep article because many people in America are confused these days about their career choices. They’re stuck between living out their passion or going after profit. The raw reality is passion doesn’t always equate to profit. But you don’t want to be stuck at a dead-end job, or business you’re not passionate about either.

It’s believed that a person should pursue their passions at all costs because they remain committed to such causes even when the going gets tough.

Passion comes from the latin word Passio, meaning to suffer. In more modern definitions it means intense emotion or desire. Passion is intense emotion associated with an idea, a cause, or a potential business venture; it usually is tied to the gifts and talents of a person and, because of the love for such causes, a person may go on executing such passions without being paid.

While profit is about starting a well proven franchise vs starting a new business from scratch with no experience. Also, profit is about choosing a career that’s in high demand and pays a great salary vs choosing a career that’s in low demand and pays a low salary that your passionate about. Feel Me? Here are some powerful examples below.

Reality Check: Most people who chases after their passions without profit will most likely end up broke and in debt. “Magnate Lifestyle”.

Technology Company Vs Shoe Company

Technology Business Vs Shoe Business (Entrepreneurship):

So, you’ve decided to start a new business from scratch. Your thinking of starting a new business selling shoes because you’re a passionate sneaker freak, but the competition is through the roof. And most shoe stores start-ups shut down within the first year of business. It can be profitable, but its a very risky business investment during the beginning stages.

Vs becoming a computer scientist first, working a job and then starting a powerful technology company creating tech products and accessories? Which has a higher demand. Plus, even if you don’t succeed at starting a technology company, you still can get a job quicker as a “Computer Scientist” than any other profession at this time. But the problem with choosing this career is you’re not really into computers that much, you’re not that good at math and you don’t have the patience to finish school. So the question is: Which business should you start?

Many people have been urged to “follow their goals and dreams.” But what happens when the dreams and passions of an entrepreneur does not make business sense, and cannot attract funding from investors, plus is not saleable?

Based on the massive economic benefits along with the prestige of that powerful position. Choosing to become a Medical Doctor would be the most logical and best choice right? No, not really because if you’re not passionate about being a medical doctor. You wouldn’t do a very good job in that field, and will most likely quit before you start. So, it would be very important to re-evaluate your inner self to discover what career choice matches with your personal lifestyle. While focusing on monetizing that choice.
