In 2014, a man in his early 30s made headlines when he left his high-paying job in the tech industry to pursue his dream of playing video games all day. It was a decision that surprised many, but for the man in question, it was a long-time coming.
For as long as he could remember, video games had been a passion. As a child, he would spend hours upon hours in front of the TV, controller in hand, working his way through the latest Nintendo release. He was good, too – good enough to win a few local tournaments during his teenage years.
But then life got in the way. He went to college, got a job, got married. The years passed and, before he knew it, he was a middle-aged man with a family and responsibilities. He still played video games, of course, but it was no longer his number one priority.
Until one day, he made the decision to quit his job and dedicate himself to gaming full-time. It was a risky move, but one that ultimately paid off. He quickly became a well-known figure in the gaming community, amassing a large following on Twitch and YouTube.
And while there are some who may think he’s made a mistake, the man in question is happy with his decision. He’s living his dream, and showing the world that it’s never too late to chase after your passions.
