Nothing is easy!
No matter what you choose as a career and no matter how easy it may project itself to you always remember you got to work really hard to achieve success.
Follow a passion!
Its important that you really enjoy what you do. If possible choose a career which is closely related to your area of interest. If your good at a hobby do give it over a thought and evaluate to see if it can fetch you a full fledge career.
Though I would love to say choose something you love to not many are privileged to enjoy such option. Sometimes your in a given situation where your forced to choose between duty and love. Lets say If you or your family is burdened with financial constraints you definately want to invest yourself into a prospective lucrative career which can monetize and yield good returns.

At much later phase in life you may often land yourself popping this question? This is not where you should be or not what you must be doing. I was one such person once upon a time.
