In order to obtain the things that we need and want it becomes necessary for most of us to spend the majority of our lives in the work force. We may be forced to hold positions at times that are not to our liking, but the long-term goal should be to find the perfect balance between financial need and happiness. Just as the princess who had to kiss several frogs to find a prince, it may be necessary to try out several positions while finding a career doing what you love.
