There’s always talk about your career, fulfillment, happiness—and making a living from following your passion. The most successful people have said that only after doing what they truly love for a living did they see dynamic results that changed their lives.

With more workers looking for life fulfillment versus striving just for a paycheck, it’s important to know that purpose and passion can often equal profits, and that the myth that you have to remain at a job you hate just to pay the bills is a dangerous one.
