Why should you reach for your dreams?
So that you can be fulfilled and happy right? And because you almost certainly can make at least some of your dreams come true.
The more pertinent question is:
“Why shouldn’t you?” (What is stopping you?):
Lack of funds? Time? Too much effort? Don’t think you have what it takes? Commitments to others? Lack of opportunity?
Ok, not every dream anyone ever thought of is going to be realistic. But you owe it to yourself to at least go through the process of figuring out what will really make you happy (if you don’t already know), exploring what it would take to happen, and if you are prepared to do what it takes.
Going this process, if nothing else, will at least allow you some closure if you decide not to pursue a given path. At best, it will start you on the path to fulfilling your wildest dreams!
