So many workers are slugging away at jobs they hate simply because they won't take action to pursue their true passion. There are countless excuses: You're too young, too old, or you don't have the necessary degree or skills to catch a break in your dream industry.

Put away your excuse bag and take action! Even if you have to take a few steps down the corporate ladder or completely stop climbing it, if you end up doing something you love, it'll be worth the sacrifice.
