Doing what you love or go with the flow?

Haven't been on here since my freshmen year at college! I just want to thank all the posters to my previous threads for help and encouragement.

I have graduated now (Bachelors in Physics) and I am in the process of figuring out what to do with my life. Actually, figuring out plan B.

I had plan A figured out, it just requires a slight climb and I am prepared to do it. However, at the same time I feel myself asking if it's worth it? What if I come up with a very good plan B and just move on?

Many people tell you to do what you love. I have figured out what I really love doing but I am just not good enough and I want to become better. I really want to study and work hard and become better, but I am wondering if it will even pay off in the end?

Should I keep trying? Or should I just go with the flow and look at the job market and just do whatever it takes to make money?

Currently I am trying to make plan A work and I have a small hourly job that pays well, but not enough. I live at home too, and I sort of just feel like a failure ( even though I'm not). It seems that everyone around me has it all figured it out.
