If you’ve been teetering on the fence of either going after your dreams, full throttle, or just stepping back into a life for which you just settle, maybe this article is the inspiration you need. Maybe lately you’ve had a little voice in your head that’s been nagging, as Kate Winslet’s character in “The Holiday” so eloquently put it, “You’re supposed to be the leading lady of your own life, for god’s sake!” And that voice is there because you haven’t been living the life you know you’re meant to live. You’ve submitted yourself to a life that is routine, passionless, and safe. It happens to a lot of people. Honestly, it happens to most people. But I can promise you this sad fact: most people aren’t very happy. I can also promise you that the few who are took a lot of chances and great risks. Great happiness is nearly impossible without those things. So, here are compelling reasons you must follow your dreams.


You’ll resent those that do

If you don’t, you’ll become a curmudgeon who resents those who do follow their dreams. Watching them will only drudge up the pain of the reality that they went for it and you didn’t. So you’ll become that jerk who, like, heckles at comedy shows.
