Dream or Reality; Do We Have To Pick?

When you're younger, people tell you to fantasize what you want to be.
When you're older, people sing you a different tune. They tell you to think about your future, and nag you about the necessity of being able to support yourself.
What happened in between those times?
When we graduate high school, most people have a clear path of what they want to do-go to a college institution. It's hard to find a sustainable living without a bachelor's degree. So, we go to college to get a chance at a multi zero amount future.
But, my question is how do we decide on a major? And when we do, is it something that we love or something that we program ourselves to like so we can put bread on the table?
At a certain point, we have to make that choice. Some students opt for the best of both worlds and major in an the area that they can make a decent living with, and minor in something that they have a personal interest in. Others just put their dreams on the shelf, and look at them like they were pictures of them in a past life.
But there's a few, a select few that DO chose to follow their dreams. Call them crazy, but they are the ones that know what they want, and aren't afraid to get it. They are the fearless ones. Their future may be dismal in what they want, but they decide to pursue it anyways, because they know that's what they are meant to do.
Isn't that all that matters at the end of the day? To be happy versus stuck at a nine to five job that causes you unhappiness?
