Have you ever had a dream? I'm not talking about a dream that we all experience while we sleep. I'm talking about a dream that shows a new career or pursuit.
Most people have these kinds of dreams and some people have the same one over and over again sometimes consuming their every waking moment. Is there anything wrong with this kind of dream?
Some people might suggest that to have a recurring dream that depicts a new reality is simply daydreaming where this dream only acts as a way to fill the void from a less than satisfying job and provides a necessary escape from their current reality making it somewhat bearable. The interesting and more significant point though, is that this dream may be what should be turned into a day-to-day reality that provides a more pleasing and fulfilling life.
So, why not invest the energy wasted on dreaming by developing a plan that will move you closer and closer to what you really desire? Some reasons for not starting is just that; you never start; you never take any steps whatsoever in taking any steps or actions. If you find yourself in this situation, one positive action is to talk with someone you know who has changed their career, someone who has had to make sustained effort to change despite obstacles or circumstances. Why?
Simple. The person who has taken action to move beyond an unsatisfying career has learned what it takes; has developed a set of procedures; has formulated an action plan; and one who has learned to overcome obstacles. Wouldn't it be a lot easier to ask them for guidance or suggestions than going it alone, or, worse still, staying mired in current circumstances where the only positive is your dream?

Mahandas Karamchand Gandhi, a stubborn man who changed the history of India. He started form no. He would have continued his practice as a lawyer in South Africa as in Indian, though there was racism or castism.
instead he decided this thing should be changed by first being an Indian by wearing the traditional dress of Indian. He boycotted the foreign attire he used while in SA. He became a hero in India while his return from there.
The first thing he did was to discover India by travelling. He travelled the entire country to find out how people lived and he became a hero of poor.
The strong will power of him made him a world hero and father of the nation. But the irony is he never got a Nobel price for peace, but a president who still got forces in foreign land got it!!!! Norway may need some help form the US...

With doubt and dismay you are smitten
You think there's no chance for you, son?
Why, the best books haven't been written
The best race hasn't been run,
The best score hasn't been made yet,
The best song hasn't been sung,
The best tune hasn't been played yet,
Cheer up, for the world is young!
No chance? Why the world is just eager
For things that you ought to create.
Its store of true wealth is still meagre
Its needs are incessant and great,
It yearns for more power and beauty
More laughter and love and romance,
More loyalty, labor and duty,
No chance - why there's nothing but chance!
For the best verse hasn't been rhymed yet,
The best house hasn't been planned,
The highest peak hasn't been climbed yet,
The mightiest rivers aren't spanned,
Don't worry and fret, faint hearted,
The chances have just begun,
For the Best jobs haven't been started,
The Best work hasn't been done.
