How to get what we want.

Do you believe that all we ever dreamed of could be ours? Do you believe that we can be the person we always wanted to be? Sometimes, I am thinking why I doubt myself in attaining the dreams I want to get. While I can observed that countless people have made what I thought impossible, why can't I do the same also? But the lessons and experiences I gained inside and outside the school change my views. I can say that the only thing that is permanent is change. And change is the sign indicating growth and development.After graduation from college, what I did next is to apply for a licensure examination for teachers. I had heard so many stories in which there are number of people who took the exam for so many times but still fails.But I realized,instead of focusing on those people, why not focus on those successful people who made it on the exam.I started from believing. Believing that I can pass it. I believed, had faith in God and in myself, and exerted effort needed to make dreams a reality. And my dream was realized. My name was included as one of the 18,801 secondary teachers who passed out of 53,195 examinees. The information of successful examinees was disseminated in newspapers and in the internet. Some of the people asks how do I do it. Then I ask back: "Why can't you do the same?" . I found out that all of us are able but not all are willing.We have the power to turn things around regardless of our intellectual and physical differences. The only thing that really matters is that you believe.Believe in yourself, for you should be the very first person who should do that.If we can dream something, then we can do it with faith in God and in ourselves, and perseverance to attain our dream,why can't we?

Thanks for sharing your story, it is inspiring and I agree with you on the subject. I think that believing is the keyword. If your thoughts are full of doubt and negativity how are you going to succeed? Your post reminds me of a poem, I forgot who wrote it, but I really like this it and it express my experiences and my thoughts about this topic: If you think you are beaten, you are if you think you dare not, you don't if you want to win, but think you can't it's almost a cinch you won't if you think you'll lose, you're lost for out in the world we find success begins with a fellow's will it's all in the state of mind life's battles don't always go to the stronger and faster man but sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can

Hello,friend,maybe you're right.We should always have faith in ourselves and make the biggest effort to realize our dreams.Isn't there an old saying that God helps those who help themselves?Your success proves this belief.Thanks for sharing your experience and ideas with us.You have set us an example that no destination cannot be reached if only we stick it out no matter how uneven this road might be.Maybe the process of persuing our dreams is rough,we will achieve the goals unless we persevere in them.
