Here’s some bad news and some good news. The bad news: You’re probably NOT doing the job you dreamed about when you were a kid. The good news: You’ve probably come to terms with what actually happened.
According to a new survey, 78% of adults say they are NOT in their childhood dream job. But . . . 70% of them say they’re HAPPY with where they ended up.
That’s not much different than people who DID get their dream job. 88% of them say they’re happy . . . but 12% are miserable.
So what WERE those dream jobs we had as kids?
The top five for boys are: Professional athlete . . . astronaut . . . doctor . . . scientist . . . and detective.
And the top five for girls are: Teacher . . . veterinarian . . . doctor . . . singer . . . and actress.
