Meet Nathan Sawaya.
He use to play with Lego when he was a child. It was his favourite "toy." He grew up to become a corporate lawyer. Then one day, he got tired of his 9-5, high-paying job; so, he quit and became a "Lego artist."
His designs/art earned him respect and success. In fact, some of his works have been bought for $20,000 - $30,000.
I guess this shows that having a job with a nice salary is not as rewarding as following your dreams.
Thanks to Nathan, we can now show our elders that there is more to life then making money, spreading the seed, and earning a pension.
