Mark Cuban debunks the passion myth, says "work hard"
"Follow Your Passion," is easily the worst advice you could ever give or get. Here's why Mark Cuban thinks so.
The following post is a verbatim quote from Mark Cuban that I share for education and purposes of enlightenment. I hope it helps others avoid similar mistakes I made in the past.
I hear it all the time from people. "I'm passionate about it." "I'm not going to quit, it's my passion." Or I hear it as advice to students and others, "Follow your passion."
What a bunch of BS. "Follow Your Passion," is easily the worst advice you could ever give or get.
Let me make this as clear as possible:
- When you work hard at something you become good at it.
- When you become good at doing something, you will enjoy it more.
- When you enjoy doing something, there is a very good chance you will become passionate or more passionate about it.
- When you are good at something, passionate and work even harder to excel and be the best at it, good things happen.
