Doing what you love or go with the flow?

<p>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. </p>

<p>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. </p>

<p>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? </p>

<p>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? </p>

<p>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? </p>

<p>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. </p>

<p>I am sorry I just realized that I posted this under college admissions because Plan A is applying to graduate school and I forgot to mention that. Whoops! </p>

<p>You may want to re-post in the Grad School Forum.</p>

<p>Go to the main page where all of the forums are listed, and scroll down to find it.</p>

<p>And be more explicit in your post. Let them know what you are thinking of studying, where, and why.</p>

<p>Thanks! Will do! </p>
