here's a question to ponder. i'm generally a cynical person who needs definitive proof before accepting something. it fits well with what i do for a living.
this is the question: did you choose your current profession because it suited your attributes or did you develop certain tendencies BECAUSE of your job?
I chose my profession because i felt i had a natural affinity for it.
I feel the best way to judge whether you're making a correct decision for yourself careerwise is to pursue something that you'd do anyway, as a hobby, even if you wouldn't be paid for it.
Perhaps you end up choosing something that is initially not as lucrative as other professions, but your drive and natural interest will keep you working at it while others tire and become disenfranchised in higher paying, but less rewarding jobs.
Ultimately you will perservere, because you're doing what you love to do and always getting better at it - financial success generally follows you when you choose a profession in this manner......enough rambling.....
