Yes people often say that dreams don't come true. So we should not dream. I think those people are pessimistic. I think we should dream. We usually dream not only because we love dreaming but also we draw inspiration from dreams. Everyone likes to dream about himself/herself. Dream helps to fix target/goal in life. When a child sees an airplane he/she dreams himself/herself as a pilot in the cockpit. It generates an inspiration inside him/her that will help him/her to become a pilot in future. But quite obviously he/she has to deliver hard work for it. We all have dreams of our own. Some of us wants to be an engineer, a doctor, a scientist, a singer, a footballer, an army officer and a lot more. But we should do our best to achieve our dream. So my opinion is dream is necessary, it will help you prosper. But --- DON'T JUST DREAM, FIND THE WAY TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Absolutely. You need dreams because otherwise you won't have any motivation to improve your situation. First comes the dream, then you need to develop a plan to work towards the dream, then you need the energy to actually put the plan into effect. But first comes the dream. Or, as the noted philosopher Captain Sensible put it: "You've got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?"

You've said it well, simply just dreaming is not going to help, you also need to take specific steps towards making those dreams come true. Also setting realistic goals helps. For example I know I may not become the CEO of my company but atleast I can try to become say a project lead, then improve myself in the areas that I am lacking. Right now my dream is to be able to coppy and paste in mylot.....off to the next discussion. Happy myloting.

I heard somewhere that "it doesn't take any more brains for you to dream big than to think small".So why wouldn't you want to dream?

Hi Sayantan.... Welcome to myLot!!!! I think what you said is very very true and i fully agree with you..Dreams gives us inspiration to work. When you dream then only you actually set your goal and target and that is when you work hard and give your best to achieve goals.... "dream doesn't come true..." only for those who have actually not worked to make the dream true. "Dreams can only come true when you truly work hard, and surely your dream will come true...". Happy myLotting...........

we shouldn`t stop dreaming,i can`t agree with you any more.i think there are two kinds of dreams,one can be came true and the other one can not be came true.what dreams do you have?i think whatever dreams you have,they all can inspirate youself.if you don`t dream any more,you life will become very boring,and you won`t have any exciting in your life.only you have dream,can your life become wonderful,you will work very very hard for your dreams,though your dreams won`t come true,you will get something worthful. so i think whether it will come true or not ,we should have dreams in our life,because you are a human .

No, we should not stop dreaming. Dreams give us something to look forward to and something to reach for. If we did not dream, I don't think we would have any desire or ambition to do anything. Dreams gives us something to focus on and help us to try and to succeed.
