We have all heard that you should follow your passion, but that is only partly true. You need to find where your passion, purpose and skill-set intersect as that is where the real magic happens. A passion can become a job if you don’t have a purpose or a big enough “why” that will help you combat your excuses. Skill-sets are also necessary to help you achieve your dream and sometimes you have to get new ones. Motivation is great but it isn’t what will take you over the finish line. Habits are the autopilots in our lives and they can help us set the course to success, or lead us to a dead-end.
