Zolra's Corner: Career Passion vs. Career Money

After years of loving, studying, testing, and pursuing what you want to do in life, you are finally at the point where your career is in the palm of your hands. Every time you wake up in the morning, you are off to your job that you always wanted to have. You put all your intelligence, passion, and sweat into those hours you’ve spent at your job. Then once you come back home you feel like you brought home the bacon, even though it is time for dinner. No matter what the payment is, you are excited to do what you wanted to do in life.

This is an example of career passion. This is when someone is so passionate about their career they will do it no matter what the cost. As long as you work hard, your compensation will increase. It can also be included in the term “Nonpaid to Paid.”

Not only that, but it can also follow the quote “It’s a blessing to do what you want to do, and it’s a miracle that you get paid to do it.”

Apart from career passion, there is one thing that many people can’t believe is happening. Some people have experienced these things and couldn’t believe that they’ve gone through this. When you’re at a point in your life where you choose you’re career, some people choose a career simply because of its high compensation.

One look at the career and some are thinking “During the first year, I can get paid this much? I’ll take it.”

It’s situations like this that brings up a similar question. Are we so consumed by money, we replace our passion to get close to a piece of paper?
