I am with you. I have a great job, a big enough salary, flexible schedule, yet I want to do something that is truly mine and that I am 100% in charge. It is unique to me, but this is what makes it a passion for me.
Everyone should have the gut to express their personal view of success.
Honestly, my realistic dream is to own a house in an area I like with a dog(s) and family. Ideally working 2/3days a week optionally remotely with all major expenses paid off.
I want to have the time and money to be able to follow my interests. And if I have to still work a bit to get that, then fine.
