From mylot to facebook, to the conversations with friends, family, and clients. I want to know why people don't think they can have it all? I think you can have it all if you believe you are worthy of it. I think if you focus and work towards your goals you can and will reach them. Of course there will be bumps along the way, that's life. But you can have it all So what is your take on this topic, Do you think people can have it all??

I think their some dreams and goals in life you can reach well for example if you want to be a lawyer,actress, or whatever you want to be. Or if you want to have a big house etc. But honestly i believe some dreams are impossible for example been the president of the country, how many people wish they can be president of their country? Many. now how many people are allowed? one. only one president for more than 2 years. I think some dreams are really impossible to accomplish although you can try you should expect the worst but wish for the best. Now for example now a billionare, that's not impossible but it requires a lot of work so much work like inventing something totally cool or something else. I like small goals so i would never get disappointed. Once again that's just my opinion. Happy myLotting.

Hi Halzelme, i understand what you are saying but i think when you think small out of fear then you are not really living. Why not reach to be president if that's what you want to do. you don't know how life will change for the better just because you took the change.

For me not all people can have it all. Even the rich people don't literally have everything in the world. There is also a point in every person's life that we do feel like some thing's lacking but what we can do is to make out the best out of everything we have. I found this site www.lifo.com where you can share your ideas there. It is an online home for information and comments on girl's interests whether it be the latest Hollywood gossip or tips on the trendiest fashion.

Yes, you can have it all, but if the price is your family, friends and anybody who helped, watched or gave you a chance to succeed then its not worth achieving at all. It also depends on what you think is "it all". Some people might focus on their career while others think that family is everything. I guess everybody definition is different.

I do think that if a person works hard and are persistent they can accomplish a lot. There are things that are easier to do than others but I don't think that means a person can't reach it. I guess it just depends on the person and what they want to do.

34 momma I really believe that you can have it all, but not all at the same time.. something has to give between family, career, and marriage . One had to work out the details so things all mesh but even then some times you have to lay one aspect of your life aside long enought to smooth out your family life, then sometimes you need to give the reins to others in the f amily so you can advance your career, and again there are times when one;s health has to take certain stare before career and family. its sort of a balancing act.

you can have it all when you see things in a different perspective..most people eventhough they got everything they need are still unhappy because they always think of things they donot have..if you look at things on the brightside everything gets wider and bigger..gor those goals you havent reached yet just always try your very best..and be happy because of the opportunity..i guess having a positive outlook in life helps to fight the worries and stress

I personally we can't have it all. There will always be imperfections and misses because that's how nature works,its the equilibrium thing.

I think that, so long as you work hard, you can achieve a lot. Especially if it's something that you really want. It may not always be possible, but you never know until you try.

As long as what you want is humanly possible, you can have it all if you work hard enough for it. One could argue that I don't have a big house, a lot of money, children, etc. but I am happy where I am. In my opinion, I already have it all. I have a wonderful husband, and I also have my independence. No one has authority over me.

It does seem possible to have it all. If you work hard at it, then I do think that it's possible to do. I doubt that it's going to be easy. but not necessarily impossible, in my opinion.
