What do you want to do more?? What are you better at?? This is a choice only you could make and pick whatever appeals to you more.

Only you can decide that really. Pick the one that you enjoy more.

Both are ambitious, and very difficult to succeed in. However, I do admire when people follow their dreams. Would you rather be paid to act or fight? Which one can be your "plan b"? Which one can you turn into a hobby?

I agree with what others have said. Only YOU can determine which one you have a more of a love and passion for. You can turn one of them into a job, and the other into a hobby. You don't have to let one or the other go. But once you determine which one means more to you, then take it seriously and put your heart into it and you'll go far.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

My theatre director and my coach during speech season says "Do you like waiting tables?" to anyone who asks her about a career in acting. Only about 2% of actors are full time employed and I don't think the damage done to the body by fighting is worth it. I would suggest following your stronger dream but not as a career unless your ready for the worst and the best.

Everything will be good in the end, if its not good, its not the end.

Personally, I'd go for Pro Mixed Martial Arts fighting, but that is just me.

And when it comes to stuff like MMA, if you do not succeed in making a living in the ring (or in this case, octagon) you can still make a living as a coach.

But hey, your still young, no need to make commitments at 14. For now, just do both, but not as a career or anything, but as stuff you enjoy. If you told me that I was going to study to become a writer when I was 14, I would have laughed in your face and said "get real."
