Following your passions and talents is one of the most logical, scariest, fulfilling things you will ever do. It is easier to just stick to the dead end job with decent consistent pay so you can meet your finances, and not even look up. To stay so focused and entrenched that job that years can pass with its humdrum. But does it really burn the fire within you, does it make you want to jump out of bed in the morning or just hit the snooze button.
Everyone has inborn talents, that make the rest of us jealous and green with envy. The problem is in this rather capitalist society is that we are taught to focus on making money and consuming the money for things and bills. The lucky few of us follow our talents as hobbies or better yet as our careers. It is one of the scariest steps most people take career wise.
