When can you say that you reached your dreams already?

I dreamt of being rich someday and worked on putting the dream into reality eversince. I have been a business minded person since my childhood - selling even the "unused" items I find in our house. I have been involved in building small to medium enterprise that I ever think of doing. Even with this mind-set, I think I have not reached the wealth that I think would make me rich. My income seems to only meet my needs. I am full of ideas, I have the educational background to support any business that I put my hands into, but I can't seem to be satisfied. Is it just because humans are generally insatiable or its true that I have not acquired all the things I want in life? As it is, I feel like I am still dreaming. I still have not achieved my goals. I know this sounds like a personal thought and I also know that I can answer this question in some way, but while I am thinking, I wish to read opinions from others - especially those who are dreamers like me and have past the dreaming stage.

reaching your dreams, I think, is different from "finding satisfaction". We know what our dreams are and we also know if we have realized them. Whether or not we are satisfied is completely a different matter. Normally, the feeling of satisfaction lingers only for a little while then we will continue on dreaming again. For dreamers, this can be an endless cycle. cheers.

I can't agree with you any more. I am always having a dream that I can enjoy a better life and I spare no efforts to make it come true everyday. Often, I get up at 6 o'clock and go asleep until 12:00 at night. But now, I am not satisfied with my earnings. Yes, I need more money to feed my parents and support the family. But on the other hand, no matter what will happen in future, I sill own the dream and try to make it come true.
