We all have dreams some of us have reached them and some are still trying. I think its important that we have something in our lives that drives us towards reaching some kind of goal but as we all know dreams don't come true easily. Please share some of the things you went through or are going through to make yours come true. It may inspire others.

i was undiagnosed dyslexic and had a hell of a time, it took all my self esteem i was termed stupid and without anything to offer. Eventually i got o,levels, A levels, and eventually a degree. The degree went well (i got a 2.i ) and desided to do a M.A Passed that and then won a scolarship for a PhD, i got that too, not bad for someone who was told he could not take public examinations.

I have tried several times to respond to this. Hope it works this time. My dream is to become a published writer. The obstacles and distractions preventing me from reaching my goal is the stupid internet. I should be editing my novel but instead I'm checking message boards and emails. Next thing I know the whole day is gone.

My toughest obstacles that hinders to my dreams is how i may overcome challenges that happened in some situations along the way in reaching my goals. Let's say studies, I undergone difficult tests and practicums until i passed my thesis with 93% as a grade. For a student, it's not easy to finish all of the courses taken, you should have the longest patience on earth in studying, reviewing and researching to pass....
