Naturally there will be days where even in your 'dream' job you will face frustrations, but it will be easier to find an inner reason to continue working in a job you love rather than one that you don't. With a lower risk of getting bored or burning out, you will be able to achieve things that the average person doesn't in your role.
If you don't like your current job right now, how long can you visualise yourself working in your current role? Every day will be a pain, a struggle to drag yourself to work, and your mind will be focused on getting to the end of the day instead of the task at hand. It is hard to imagine a successful career materializing from such a scenario.
The key will be to do what you like and generate an income out of it. This way, you enjoy what you are doing, and at the same time ensure that you survive and is able to meet basic essential needs.
