If you look for advice on how to be successful and make it as an entrepreneur, you'll soon encounter "follow your passion", "do what you love most", "dream big and go after your dreams" and other variations of this same idea.
For the most part, this is awful advice. Often given by people who are either delusional or just happened to get lucky themselves.
