I kind of like "love what you do" better. Wherever you are just be good at it, embrace it, love it. Eventually success will find you.
Love what you do!

Make a difference, not just money.
There is a power greater than all the world's leaders combined that is still in charge of this universe.
We have to believe that another world is possible, other than the one we’re born into.
