    Jan 23 2014: I remember the day I started my studies, when one of mine favorite teachers said- BE PASSION. So, the only tip I can give you is to find something that makes you feel passion, so you can be happy while doing it. If you love it, you will be focused by the process of doing, not only money. Your work will inspire you. The money does not have to be your priority. Priority is fulfillment and happiness, and you can rich it only if you are doing something you love and you are passion about.

    Some studies confirmed that people rather choose job places where they can find respecting and feeling peaceful, than racing for money, stress, or extra paid jobs.
