Motivated by money or driven by your passion?

Passion or moneyOne of the key questions that usually arises during the career guidance and career coaching processes, is related to the main driver of your choice. Might a trade-off exist between what you are really passionate about and what you believe could be more profitable? Is it possible to have both? If not, which one should you prioritise? We find people whose priority is to find a position that gives them social prestige, people looking for a profession that gives them money to have certain well-being and lifestyle while others are inclined to find an activity they really enjoy and feel is a true ‘calling‘. This is valid not only when choosing among different job options, but also when deciding whether to study a Master degree, what studies to select when attending a college or university, and so on.
