How do you choose the right career?

It's one of the most important questions of our lives.

Most of us need to make money to live and therefore must choose a job or business to pursue.

The problem is many of us don't choose the right one because we don't know how.

No one really teaches us these things.

Some of us slave away at a job we hate just so we can keep paying the bills.

Others work their way up the corporate ladder only to find they're not satisfied when they get to the top decades later.

So what do you do?

Maybe you should take some advice from 3 billionaires like Mark Cuban, Richard Branson, and Warren Buffett.

They all seem to agree that you should do what you love doing and then get really good at that.

Here are their actual quotes:

Warren Buffett

“…not doing what we love in the name of greed is very poor management of our lives.” – Warren Buffett

“In the world of business, the people who are most successful are those who are doing what they love.” – Warren Buffett

“There comes a time when you ought to start doing what you want. Take a job that you love. You will jump out of bed in the morning. I think you are out of your mind if you keep taking jobs that you don’t like because you think it will look good on your resume. Isn’t that a little like saving up sex for your old age?” – Warren Buffett

“Never give up searching for the job that you are passionate about.” – Warren Buffett

Mark Cuban

“Don't start a company unless it's an obsession and something you love. If you have an exit strategy, it's not an obsession.” – Mark Cuban

“Sweat equity is the most valuable equity there is. Know your business and industry better than anyone else in the world. Love what you do or don't do it.” – Mark Cuban

“Once you have found out what you love to do, there is only one goal: to be the best in the world at it.” – Mark Cuban

Richard Branson

“There is no greater thing you can do in your life and your work then follow your passions in a way that serves the world and you.” – Richard Branson

“The best advice I could give anyone is to spend your time working on whatever you are passionate about in life.” – Richard Branson

Considering all 3 of these men are billionaires with families and thousands of people that look up to them, I think it's pretty safe to say this is good advice.
