Simple question. Would you say that youre truly happy or just doing a day to day thing? Most people I know do not actively chase their dreams and settle for the day to day grind. I made some major changes to my life over the past year and my life has turned around to the point where I can actually say I am living out my dreams.
Most people just gun for money it seems, and will work jobs they had no interest in doing in their life until they found out the pay scale and after they get home from the workday they just shut down and work for the weekends so they can booze it up a bit. Your career is not your whole life but it certainly is a huge part of your life based on the amount of time spent there and the fact it pays for you to live out other aspects of your life.
