    Wanted to share this great article I came across.

    Billionaire Mark Cuban: 'Don't follow your passion'

    Don't follow your passion:
    Follow your effort instead:
    And the best part of his advice in my opinion:
    I can especially relate to the advice "if you spend hours working hard at something, you get good at it, and you tend to enjoy it more".

    I found out that the more I take action on my business, the better I get at it and the less dreadful the thought of taking action becomes. Eventually, results came in and before I knew it, I was hooked. Video games and other mindless entertainment doesn't seem appealing to me anymore.

    Bingo, connected feedback loop creates passion which enhances motivation. Passion does not PRECEDE, it PROCEEDS.

    I can also relate to getting good at something I'm working hard at. these days I was reading the book , and my head exploded with a super idea.This same idea has to do with something I would very much like to work on, but I'm more dedicated to making money than doing what I love.

    Passion is in "making money" :rofl::rofl:
