tanx.. i'm kinda worried.. i'm taking up a course which i don't love. but i have no choice but to pursue it, it's the will of my parents..i have to make them happy and give them all they want.. as of now, i'm struggling to love what i'm taking up..it's not that easy you know.. many times, i cried at night because of this..but maybe, i can get used to it and finally would learn to love my course.

Most likely, he won't. It's because a person can only be successful if he really loves what he does, otherwise, he'll get tired of it easily, and won't have the energy to go on with it, anymore. Unlike if he loves it, no matter how hard it is, he can endure it through LOVE.

yah.. i agree with you.. a person who does not love his work won't succeed. or if he succeed,it would not be easy for him..

In fact to this question,i don't sure whether he will be successful or not. If a person have a work he like ,the possibility of success is big.Because interests can give him power to do this job well and he will spent a lot of times doing it. I also think that a person can be sucessful even though he don't love.In society ,people must find a work to make money and live.Someone can find a job he like ,but not all people can have these chances .In order to live and look after his family ,he have to work and must make himself successful!! As we know ,society is cruel!

I think i can understand you and you are not happy about it. Now i study a major which i don't like in the university.But i can't change it.What i can do is only to learn it well by heart.I think if i try my best to do it ,no matter whether i will be successful or not,i think i am a successful person. Because the process is more important than the result and nobody will do everything sucessfully in the world! Good luck to you!

I think a person can be successful even if they are not in love with what they are doing that means financially anyway. I think more importantly is that person happy? if becoming successful at something you do not like doing and you are miserable doing it then what is the point? I think life it too short to be unhappy. We do have to earn a living to survive though and sometimes that means not always enjoying what we do for a living.

yah..life is too short to be unhappy.. but i'm doing this for my family.. for financial purposes as well.. maybe, it's not the time to think of my happiness. i have to earn money first before thinking of myself.

Maybe by what people may see. But inside, that person is not contented and not satisfied either. He won't be successful if he's not happy of what he's doing.
