Do you have a dream? Part 1 of 3

When we are young, we dream of our future lives where we become influential and we save the world. As we grow older, the dreams appear silly and unrealistic. The older we get the more distant the dreams grow. Many young persons who are attaining adulthood have picked up new dreams from their parents, friends or teachers.

Dreams become reality – The world as we know it and every discovery that was ever made were dreams at a time. When the plans for the first train was unveiled, Scientists at that time, thought that people who rode in the train would die because a train would become the fastest vehicle at the time. Now think of other inventions that have been made and how silly the ideas sounded when the inventor tried to explain it to others. The popular saying that ‘if you can dream it, you can achieve it’ has been proven again and again.

Your role is not to worry, just dream – Part of growing up is the worry about how others perceive us. No one wants to be weird or a freak. Young people often worry about saying something stupid and want to be ‘cool’. History has shown again and again that the coolest kids often end up working for the weird kid in school. It’s the geeks who run the work, creating amazing technology every day. If you are a dreamer, forget about being misunderstood, the future will reward your persistence.

Dreams are idealistic impressions we create in our minds about the world. While it may be very different from the way life is, it predicts perfect pictures for the future. To dream is a gift for all.

It’s okay to wander from a specific dream

A certain video went viral on social media a few years ago. It was about a little school girl who cried because the parents would not let her have a boyfriend ‘forever’. Later videos show this same girl, now older, advising young girls not to waste their time on relationships. The ability to change one’s mind is common among young people. That is absolutely not a bad thing. It is only right that our perspectives about life are shaped by our experience. If a dream is not coming together or no longer seems workable, then move on to the next one. At the right time, you figure out how to fix all your dreams and make them come true.

Do not be afraid of failing. Many wise and successful people have proudly failed their way to success. This means that they kept working on their dreams and despite failing many times, they eventually succeeded.
