That reason helps you through the first five years of work, so if it is not sincere, it won't pass.For the second question, it really is whether you believe that you are strong enough, both mentally and emotionally to go through the stress, lack of income and hard work without supervision. The compensation in the long run in unparalleled, but if you lack the proper concentration, you will not make it in the industry.
