Trading Spaces

A friend of mine gave up almost everything a year ago to follow his dream. He's in his mid-30s and left his friends, his family, his 12-year career, his financial security, and his home to live in a new country, learn a new language, and enjoy a lifestlye he'd dreamed about for as long as he could remember.

"I don't have any money now, and I have a dead-end job, but I'm happy," he told me.

I asked him if he had any regrets ... trading in almost everything to start all over again.

"Only one," he said. "That I didn't do it sooner."

He's inspired me, but I don't know that I could do what he's done.

What would you give up to find your happiness?
