    I would say, NEVER give up what you have but ALWAYS work toward your dreams.

    I've met people before who have said they had one dream, but are staying where they are because of good pay/benefits. With income being a real problem these days I can understand why people are staying where they are. But, having said that, I think that one should always do something that is working towards their dream. With me, for example, my dream is to be a published author. My day job isn't exactly lucrative, but I don't have the option of quitting it to go and write. However, as long as I continue to work on my first novel, I have a feeling of fulfillment and the sense that I'm still working towards my dream. The situation might be different if I actually liked the job I was working at, but I feel like working towards something better is what keeps us going.

    I think it is possible to do both.  We need to fully appreciate what we have in our lives but also continue to work towards that one goal or dream.  I think is we get stagnant, we get depressed.

    Definitely go for your dreams. If you don't you may regret it for the rest of your life wishing you had. It's better to do what you love doing than doing something you only like, or something you hate but it makes you money.

    Go for your dreams....we only have one life and if you settle possibly at some point you will realize that settling has made you miss out on living what you wanted to.  A friend of mine once told me a story of when during an he was flying through the air after hitting a car with his motorcycle....he that moment....I was not like a video game....there are no extra lives
