Do you think you will get where you want in life?

What do you think will hold you back from succeeding and achieving that which you want? I guess, for me, it's definitely the fact that everything has been handed to me on a platter that makes me reluctant to step up and ask for more. I guess I always think 'Well hey, maybe it's somebody else's turn now' and I guess if I'm honest with myself, I would definitely prefer the fantastic family and friends I've been blessed with over the largely superficial career that I aspire to. I feel like I'm not worthy of good things because I haven't done enough with the good things I've been given. What do you think? Where do you want to get in life, what will help you out and what will hinder you? It would be great to hear some ideas.

I always have this feeling I will one day achieve what I want and leave the life I want to live. Even though I am still far away from the goal, I have this feeling I will get it. Usually my feeling is right and I hope it will be right for this too. I hope you will find your goal too and lead an enriching happy life. Don't be afraid to aim high. Have confidence.

Thanks for your good wishes :D I guess it's easier to have lofty ideals and grand visions before you start to follow the steps you need to, to achieve your goals. I have a feeling that everything will work out in the end, also, but the end is so far away that it's crazy to think of what will happen before then!

Even i dun think i can make it and get what i want in life, i will still hope for it because life is so long or short, it depends on how u see it ^_^ We should always be positive in life and be determined to know what are the goals in our life and work for it, from there, we can start to slowly realise our long awaited dreams ^_^ Goals and dreams are different in the sense that, goals are short term and they are easily to meet ^_^ While a dream is only a dream, whereby u want it to come true, will have to see how badly u want it ^_^ LIfe is simple ^_^ Work hard for the things u want and u will get it ^_^

It's crazy because a dream, and whether you live up to it or not, kind of defines you as a person and grades the success of your life. My boyfriend wants to be a rockstar but that's highly unlikely. It throws his life onto a different sphere, dream wise, having to find genuine alternatives. But it still makes him a cool person for having taht dream, if you get me. The people who really depress me are the dreamless :( Great answer though.

You think it's a simple matter of wanting things and receiving them? Has it worked for you that way? Do you think it happens for everybody that way?
