Being an Athlete: Information
Being a pro athlete takes life long commitment in the sport of your choice. Training in the off season or keeping your grades up in school is just some of the things on the path to the pros. An athlete doesn't go strait to the starting line up in the pros it takes a lot of training and preparation. For example a NFL quarterback makes about 4 million dollars per year, but that will vary by position. If this is something you are striving for you have to be athletic, creative, and influential (a leader).
Mechanical engineers are typically involved with the generation, distribution, and use of energy. On average a mechanical engineer makes $125,000 a year, but this is with many years of schooling and training for example to be a mechanical engineer you must have 5 years of college a bachelors degree, and much more hands on training.
