I ask the question of people I give lessons, what is the easiest direction to ride a horse? The answer is the direction he is going. Such is life. If you have aspirations to be singer, but you decide it is foolish to pursue this life. You will never be fulfilled. You may sing for free at church or weddings, but if you sing you will have a full life.
Whatever your direction is pursue it in some way. Maybe it will grow into a way to make a living, maybe it won’t, but you will strive farther and be happier working at something you care about than if you just work.
What to do?
