In this hilarious TED Talks, economic professor Larry Smith explains why you will fail to have a great career. In simple, it's because no matter how many times someone tells you to follow your passion, you just won't do it! Instead, you will follow the familiar path and end up in one of those "high-stress, blood-sucking, soul-destroying" jobs. He says sure, some of you may actually take the advice to heart, and may find something you're "interested" in and say "I have found an interest." However, that "interest" is not a passion, Larry Smith explains that a passion is the thing that will help you create the highest expression of your talent. Passion is something that constantly draws you to that thing.
He finishes off the talk by asking something bold, he says, when your kid tells you "I have a dream" you want to be able to say "go for it kid, just like I did."
