1. You’re going to go through a time where you’re not going to make any money.
It’s not going to be a week, it’s not going to be a month, it’s not going to be one year.
It’s going to be years.
And during that time, if you don’t love what you do, it’s going to be very hard to stick it out.
That is something that people don’t understand when they hear, “Follow your passion”
They hear rainbows, unicorns, bullshit.
But the truth of it is that it’s important, because if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, you’re going to be that much more likely to quit when shit’s hard.
2. When I was five, I imagined that there was such a thing as a unicorn.
And this was before I had even heard of one, or seen one.
I just drew a picture, of a horse, that could fly over rainbows, and a had a huge spike in its head. I was five! Five-years-old. Couldn't even talk yet.
