I didn't have an aim. I enjoyed playing around with computers when I was young, and I enjoyed the challenges and creativity required to come up with solutions that you thought were impossible yesterday.

Being able to pay my bills while doing something I enjoy. I have already fulfilled this objective by now but I don't feel good about being static in this position, so I'm always trying to push forward in terms of knowledge, practice and paycheck

I suppose it would be to make a good living myself with a healthy stable income and some passive income streams. I think it is quite a good way to build an audience too and the content you create can help aspiring developers to get into this industry too.

Programming started out as a hobby for me and it still is so I se it as a passion and work its the best of both worlds.

I always liked making and building things when I was younger (dad was a carpenter, worked as an electrician after school, was good at fixing things) and then I did a coding class at uni and realised I could make things and the materials (code) was completely free. Snowballed from there.

Lost a bit of motivation to do my own stuff for a while, just did it for work, but it's back now. Just making things for the sake of it.

No "legend" starts out with their goal to become a legend.

if someone probably thought of that, there could be some breakdown because he/she will be focused on being a legend without working out on how to become that legend.

but me saying i want to become a legend doesn't mean i will not work for it. that's the sacrifice am making

It won't happen though. It is better to have realistic expectations. You'll never make it if your only goal is to be great and famous.
