As the late great Tai Solarin said in 1964, "May your road be rough".

He went on to say: "Our successes are conditioned by the amount of risk we are ready to take. The big fish is never caught in shallow waters. You have to go into the open sea for it. You cannot make omelettes without breaking eggs, throughout the world, there is no paean without pain."

"Life, if it is going to be abundant, must have plenty of hills and vales. It must have plenty of sunshine and rough weather. It must be rich in obfuscation and perspicacity. It must be packed with days of danger and of apprehension."

I am grateful for the rough roads that I have traveled - they have led me here.

We have a tendency to become very enthusiastic about the things that we commit time and effort to achieving. Your passion grows as you encounter progress.

So, maybe stop waiting around for your passion to magically become profitable. Develop your passion, don't follow it.

You need to put in the work. Invest in learning - read, dig deep, ask questions, seek out more information, don't stop. And when you've learned enough, take some action.

Remember - nothing changes over time; things only change when determined people take deliberate actions.
