What is it you really want?

This guy left his six figure job to become an actor. It was scary. It made him uncomfortable. It made him happy.

Many of us trade happiness for money each day. We think it's the safe thing to do. Sure, your material lifestyle might be safe. In the long run, unhappiness is risky.
