Most of us had big dreams as children. We were all going to grow up and become astronauts, surgeons, or world leaders (I myself wanted to be either a firefighter, tractor-trailer driver, or garbage collector so I could ride around in a big truck all day). We’d have extravagant weddings, loving families, and all the money and free time we needed to travel the world.
Remember how it felt when someone asked us what we wanted to be when we grew up? The possibilities for mapping out our lives seemed endless then.
