In my world you are giving the worst advice. Good job Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook did not take your advice to ignore passion and excitement. Should he have settled for a job on a zero hours contract where the only future is the end of the assembly line at the end of each day?

I say to young people have a go at living your dream and achieving your best. Because if you do not try to achieve the impossible then the mundane and the possible will haunt you forever.

I have spent all my life trying to be the best in the life of my choice. So much more soul-satisfying then being a life of somebody else’s choice.

Of course we cannot all be Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook. But we can strive to be the best at what we do.

However here in ‘Bend over Britain’ the dream has been cast to the waste-bin of failed economic policies and sell-off of U.K manufacturing to whomever the U.K can sell it to.

The youth of the U.K have been trained to low wages and no future. What is worse they have accepted it. So here at least in the U.K your advice has been taken.

Am I the only one who finds the advice "Do what you love" for a living to be the worst advice to give a young person?
