Think about this...
Regardless of what you want to do, there are multiple examples of people already doing it. So what is the reason for that?
With every opportunity, there is someone who is successful. So what is the cause of those who are not?
Well life outside a job is more like driving manual instead of automatic, but having a wage is more like driving automatic with a severe speed limitation.
WE have to put forth the right effort, to change the gears appropriately.
WE have to understand what, how, when, AND WHY in order to not only move forward; but to move forward in a manner that can be exhilarating, exciting, and enjoyable.
As it says in Ecclesiastes 1:3 What profit has a man of all his labor which he takes under the sun?
Then later in 2:24 There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labor. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.
Are we laboring as we should?
