So, if you are thinking of starting a business or are employed right now, forget the paycheck, and find what truly makes you feel happy and fulfilled.

The money will follow. And if it doesn't, at least you will be happy!
So true. Take control of your own life and make the effort to be passionate and happy with what you do.

Love the upbeat tone of the article. But I think there can be times when the sparks don't generate themselves. Hang on, kick your discipline into high gear, and give it all you've got till the sun shines brighter than ever before.

In short- I AGREE

In long- This requires a self-awareness that frankly most people just do not have. If you are willing to discover who you really are the good and bad and embrace it then you will arrive at that place. If you are willing to embrace your strengths and cultivate talents abilities around them you will find yourself playing everyday not working. Most people focus either on finding the right field/industry or on becoming a well rounded individual strengthening their weaknesses. Most "successful people could change industries or fields and still be top performers and most are not well rounded individuals. They simply appreciate themselves and value the contribution they are able to make. Sometimes others value and respect it (Buffet) and sometimes people do not (I personally can't stand Trump's arrogance).

My opinion anyway.
