The trial of taking the path less traveled by…

is that it is really hard to stay on this path. To keep on persevering.

I used to think that I was fearless. That the actions I have been taking since junior year of high school, have sort of created some sort of weird complex where I was no longer afraid of anything. I have always relentlessly pursued whatever I am passionate about, or thought I was passionate about. But the question that has been building up over these past few weeks is–is passion enough? Cal Newport argues that “following your passion” is overstated and disillusioning to today’s youth. He has written a lot of articles and a book arguing the fallacies of this cliche, and I sort of have to agree with him.

I just don’t know if thats the fear speaking.
