    the classic "yes and no"

    I mean if your passion is law school or something and can suffice to make you an income more power to you. But if it is sculpting you should plan for a day job so you aren't starving to death later.

    I have always been an active believer in following something you love, your heart. Money isn't everything. But you should have enough to survive. So if you want to be an artist, an author, a musician, follow your heart!
    But get a day job. Or double major in college so you can get a major that'll sustain you and learn what you want to know of the arts. And if not that you can buy books to teach yourself and all.

    You should compromise I think is the better word. XD
    Fearsome hearts, I wouldn't lie
    I got memories that travels my mind
    Fear not, fear not when you go
    I got pieces of your hate in my soul
    Look at me now
    I'm falling apart in daylight
    All the pieces that I've lost, I have loved

    Generally it's a throw away term people use to have something to say. And hope no one asks how to figure out what your passion is, exactly.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'm going for social work, but passion is fiction writing. I still write but it's hard to make money writing fiction.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I follow my passion and as a result have very little money. It feels like the only option for me because anything else would feel like death or at least zombie-hood.

    If one truly has a passion, it cannot be resisted.

    Obviously you want to pursue things you're passionate about in life, but it's also important to be practical. Life is usually about balance.

    Thank you for the reply. What is your passion?
    My advice: Follow the money, but while doing so, try to find reasons to like what you are doing to make money.

    I’ve always had lots of ideas but never anything that could be considered a passion. I now teach and make comfortable money, but part of me is itching to give law school or med school a go—its important to make money while young to have the money to enjoy later. In all honesty, though, since I have a comfortable amount of money, I may just make do with the career I have and focus on getting to retirement.

    If you have ingenuity to further follow your passion then do so.

    Sometimes you don’t need to compromise
