These Guys Found Their Dream Job And Never Looked Back.
Do you feel like your dreams will remain dreams forever? It's true that there are some dreams that are unattainable. For example, some people want to be Beyoncé, but that role is already taken, and we doubt that a replacement would ever work out. However, if your dream involves your passion and you can't imagine yourself doing anything else, we encourage you to at least try.
We're not going to lie to you and say that hard work will get you exactly where you want to be and we're not saying that you should quit your job and leave your family in debt, but if you are at a place where you are the main barrier from working towards your goal, then you should stop fighting with yourself and go for it. All the way.
We all have the same number of hours per day, the same number of days per week. If you work on time management and welcome the proper training and experience into your life, you'll discover that your dream job is not just too far off. Along the way, you might discover some other interests. Don't forget to also have fun.
Some popular dream jobs include teacher, doctor, and lawyer, but we've provided a few others below. Has any of these ever appealed to you? We'd also love to hear about your dream job, no matter how ridiculous it sounds, and how you plan to reach your goals.
#1. Professional Athlete
There are kids, teens, and adults out there that want to bend it like Beckham or become the next Stephen Curry. To become a professional athlete, you should start young and accept that this dream, just like many others, comes with sacrifices. You'll be missing out on fun, normal, and even important activities to train and participate in games. You have to take care of your body, train every day, and maintain a strong mentality. Even then, that doesn't mean you'll make it, but you've got to keep your head up.

Something you should know about this job is that you won't be drinking all day. There's a running joke that says brewing is 90% cleaning and 10% paperwork, and it's actually quite true. On top of having a passion for beer, you have to be very meticulous and patient if you want a job like this.

I used to work at a gourmet chocolate and candy shop, and guests would walk in saying, "I just died and went to heaven." You can always apply and work at a similar shop, but if you want to be a serious chocolate maker, invest in training. Make it your craft.
