This is a sentence we have heard from our parents still childhood and many of us are still listening this sentence. Like how can a parent decide the career of his child without even knowing his/her interests and abilities?
The fate of some people is even decided when they are just born. I will illustrate this with an example from a vey famous movie, Three Idiots.
The career of Farhan was decided by his dad when he was just born while he wanted to become a wildlife photographer when he grew up.
But in the end he was able to convince his father to become a wildlife photographer and later he got successful in this field.
This scene is highly emotional and gives one goosebumps while watching.
A very Famous Pakistani Freelancer, Hesham Sarwar says
"Lucky are the people whose passion is their profession."
So like Farhan, you also should stand up for your passion.
If you have a passion for a particular field, fulfil it!
You only live once & Life is short.
Don’t run after money granting professions if you have no interest for them.
Do what you love. You are made for it!
