A dream is a great inspiration, but without positive action, it never happens. A dream with positive action becomes a goal-a commitment to strive for. In the world of Sports fitness, the Olympic athlete sets the highest goal: to be the absolute best in International competition. You should also set a goal: to become the best you can be. Then let patience and dedication be your guides to your goal.

Yes, I would most definitely agree. To achieve a dream, a lot of sacrifices must be made, however, when you remain positive and love what you're doing, they begin to seem less and less like sacrifices. I believe those who achieve their ultimate dream do so not because the ability to achieve one's dreams is a rare gift God-given to a very chosen few, but because these people know themselves well, they know what they want, and they are able to have enough confidence as well as effort to work towards getting it. They also don't let their overall ability be preconceived by stereotypes or by someone else. It does sound like merely a chiche that looks good on paper when you think about it - and many people have been fooled into believing that this is indeed what it is. However, in my life, I have learned to use the word "impossible" with great caution. It is all about finding the balance and the formula that counts toward reaching your full potential.

Yes I agree! Positive action may include hard work and patience. Also important is goal setting and positive outlook in life.

You are quite right. A dream on its own is not enough. You need to make plans and try hard to achieve what you want in life. I also agree that patience is required along with dedication. In my life nothing happens as quickly as I would like. Some dreams take many years to come true. Some things could possibly have happened sooner if I had made more effort but I think it is often because it was not the right time in my life and I only reached my goal when I was ready to achieve it, when I had the necessary ability or correct attitude.
