Dreams Jobs With Tools
No one grows up thinking they are going to be stuck in a dead end job they hate. No one wants to work for the rest of their lives despising what they do. There are many people who, unfortunately, are stuck taking many jobs they never dreamed of taking and end up doing it for the majority of their lives. There is always hope to not end up in those jobs through education and experience of learning different skills. Many people may have to ‘bite the bullet’ for a period of time in order to make some money in order to support the betterment of their lives. But a dream job is very possible.
Many dream jobs often change as we get older. There are plenty of children who grow up wanting to be an astronaut, a football star, an actor, or the President of the United States, and while, everything is very possible, some dreams may just not be feasible and often require a lot of hard work and sacrifice to achieve them.
Some dream jobs may be more dangerous than you think and require an apprenticeship or years of learning before you are allowed to do the job on your own. Before you can become President of the United States, it is required that you have years of experience in politics. Doctors are required to spend years in medical school and are required to go through a vigorous residency program. Becoming an actor will require years of practice, rejection, failures, and low paying jobs to try and support your acting career.
Achieving a dream job is hard work and is hardly ever handed to you on a silver plate. You must work years to obtain it and once you’ve acquired the dream job you’re after, you must deal with the everyday stresses it brings. You either love it or you don’t.
