Most of us grow up dreaming of accomplishing something great when we get older. Whether we wanted to be astronauts, actors, or athletes, we wanted to not only achieve a lot in life, but to enjoy a particular lifestyle that comes with those achievements.
Although many people never end up experiencing what it's like to live out those dreams, those who do will often say that it isn't quite what they expected. Unfortunately, this can mean that what they worked so hard to achieve feels a little hollow now that they actually have it.
For some, this leads to a turning point where they find a real purpose. After all, there are many ways to make your mark on the world and the world is in desperate need of some of them.
