Unless and until it is accomplished i seldom disclose my dreams to anyone not my friends nor my families. I feel i should accomplish it first then let everyone know what i have achieved or tell them everyone at a point were there is no stopping me!! When we disclose it pre hand and if it's not achieved we become a laughing stock for them ,so instead of being the laughing stock ,I disclose it only when it's about to be achieved or already accomplished. what about you? how do you go about it?

I do the same as you. I think other people won't have the same belief in what I can achieve that I do, they may not think it's possible for anyone to do it, or they may think I'm foolish to attempt it. I agree it is far better to show people what you have already achieved, and are actively achieving, rather than tell them what you plan to achieve. If I'm convinced I can do something, I will have enough determination to do it on my own. I don't need the encouragement or approval of other people. That does not mean I don't want advice or to learn from the experience of others, but I will seek that information in my own way, not by announcing my intentions to everyone. There will always be people who think they know better and will try to discourage someone who has ambitions.

Most people don't believe it until it's achieved so better to keep it to our self.even if we disclose it all we get is a big " how is it possible" seldom do we get a "come on give it a try or I am with you". most often we get those negative answers which demoralizes us even before we start so best to keep it to self and give then a big surprise when we achieve it!!

I see where you are coming from. I don't always disclose my dreams either. There are goals that I have yet to accomplish. I am now forty years old with a smal child and hope to go back to school one day to earn a degree. I have told some people in my life some of the things I'd like to do and they seem to be very encouraging. You might get words of encouragement through letting people know what you want to do with your life.

you know if you would have disclosed your dream to me personally i would have given a smile if not a laugh!!! i know i might be sounding a little rude over here but hope you understand just being frank here.I just human to laugh at dreams which we think are beyond reach but i know deep down there you have the will power to achieve it which only you understand, not all.

I will choose the similar way, I don't like to set a goal which are far away from my life.Sometimes,when I am chatting with my good friend ,I will share my ideas with him. But I will try my best to achieve it,even on the way several setbacks I met, I still prefer to tell the good result to others rather than complianting.
