As Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, people often ask me for career advice. I always tell them the same thing: "Do what you love. Love what you do."
Whether it's writing, teaching or marauding the countryside to spread fear and panic -- start by finding the thing you love to do.
Don't listen to anyone who tells you not to do it. When I said I was going to be ruler of the largest contiguous empire in history, many people laughed. You know what I did? I ignored them! I also laid waste to their cities and had their heads put on spikes. But the important thing is that I didn't get caught up worrying about what "others" were doing.
Because if you love what you're doing it's not really "work" anymore.
