Are you living the dream?Only you know if you're living the dream. What do I mean? Well, are you doing what makes you happy? Do you look forward to going wherever it is you go every day?
Flash back to my teenage years, laying on the hood of my clunker car with my back resting on the front windshield. Um, no, it wasn't a model T car or anything like that. It was a 1974 Chevy Nova if you must know. I would look up at the night sky and day dream what my life would be like when I become an adult.
I remember thinking how I want to do something where I would be happy. I wanted power, money, adulation. You know typical teenager fantasy stuff. Did I get it? Yes and no. I am self employed so I am better able to control my own destiny. Money? That comes from running a business but I failed to take bills into consideration as a teenager. Adulation? Well, I enjoy helping people by doing what I do, so in a way, I have adulation. The rock star type of adulation? No.
If you can't remember the last time you were happy at work them perhaps it's time to grow a business of your own. Like a bunch of other start ups, it may be undercapitalized but with effort, you might finally get to live what you always hoped for when you were still in school.
