Most parents will tell their children that they can be whatever they want when they grow up. In parents’ terms, that usually means you can be a teacher, a doctor or a lawyer. But what if you have dreams to be the next Madonna or Richard Branson? Yes, your chances are statistically slim but the more you believe in something, the more possible it seems.
Due to the world’s struggling economy, people have come to lose faith in the impossible; stop fantasizing and find someone to fix the washing machine. While the washing machine really does need to be fixed, focusing too much on the hardships and struggles have made our children lose faith in their dreams. But it’s the dreamers of this planet who pave the way for the rest. Without believing in the impossible we aren’t really left with much else to believe in.
I would be giving terrible advice if I told you to quit school to become a pop star because you don’t need to. The human race is resilient and capable of some pretty amazing things. I always say that if you’re passionate enough about something then you make time for it. You can still chase your dream while getting an education. Let’s face it, pursuing a career in medicine is far more stable then pursuing stardom. Living in the center of reality and fantasy will help you maintain stability while you take actions toward making your dream come to fruition. Fantasy should not be kept separate from reality because they overlap more than you know.
So many times, we’ve heard people say that something is impossible but if we listened to those people then numerous things on this planet would never have come to exist. Continue to follow your dreams and believe in the impossible because possible is for the boring.
