I also consistently meet people unhappy with their careers because they choose a profession based solely on financial potential. Although they might have the accouterments of success, they are unhappy in their lives. This seems especially true in professions normally thought of as “big-money jobs.” For instance, a sizable percentage of the attorneys I have had contact with express dissatisfaction with their lives, often saying they were lured into the profession by the image of big money and fancy offices, but that they have no love for the work. But the good news is that there is always redemption available—even late in life—for those who have gone down the wrong career or life path. It just involves making choices that might seem hard at first but that offer a lifetime of satisfaction.
