Yes, You Can Follow Your Dreams—But Know This Before You Do

In this TEDx talk, The Passion Project co-fouder Eunice Hii aims to set the record straight about what chasing your dreams really means. As it turns out, this isn’t something you should do haphazardly.

Yes, you can (and should) try to go after what you really want and enjoy. But you should also work hard, serve others, accept that your passion may not be your main job, and most of all—be grateful you live in a time in which following your dreams is encouraged.

So while some individuals believe Millennials are the worst generation ever because they’ve heard this advice far too often (watch the video to find out who), the truth is, this is still good advice. As long as you’re smart about it.
