But if you can control your expenses and save some money in the bank that gives you some options and some freedom. And if you are lucky you will find a profession that you can be passionate about, doing something that you know really matters. THEN your work ethic can be a positive drive to do something you care about, rather than a desperate sprint to keep up with your bills.
So finding what you love is the key. But if you spend every dime while you are trying to figure it out, and get obligated to big payments, then you are more likely to have to do the job that pays you the most, not the one you love. And you will have little time to find the work you love... because you are working all the time for that paycheck.
So you get to decide if your career - and all the hard work and time that you will put into it- will be driven by a work ethic and enthusiasm for something you care about... or will will it be economic desperation that drives your daily efforts.
I hope that helps.
