Every one needs to have a dream, a goal to aim for, something to keep them motivated to make it to the next level. We should never let these dreams die as I really believe that you can achieve anything if you try hard enough.
For me, the dream I always had when I was growing up was to one day earn my wings and be able to own and fly my own plane.
When I was sixteen I got my first chance to fly a light aircraft and what an experience it was, straight way I was hooked by the immense feeling of freedom you get at the controls of a light aircraft. I took to it like a duck to water and the instructor allowed me to land the plane by myself on my very first flight. Following this first experience I had a couple more flights were I got the chance to do some flying, but due to my studies and later having a family flying ended up being put on the back burner until a time when I had both the time and disposable income to start it up again.
Now at the grand old age of 32, I am heading towards a time when I can revisit the dream of getting my wings and it feels great to be in a position to start revisiting the dream I had as a kid.
When we are young we all have dreams of all the fun and exciting things we want to do when we grow older, but the reality and pressures of life often mean that these dreams fade away and we end up never getting round to fulfilling them. But without dreams and ambitions your have nothing to really work towards or give you focus.
Concentrating on and achieving your goals and dreams keeps us all, as human beings going, gives us a sense of self pride and a level of satisfaction which can not be matched by anything else in life. I find that by setting myself small goals and then building them up and up each time I achieve the next level keeps me motivated and focused. However setting you aims to high at the start can so often be demoralising if you do not achieve immediate success and could even end with you giving up on you dreams al together.
Everyone should have a dream and you should never give up on one day achieving it, after all it's what keeps us going as human beings. Dare to dream the dream and you will be amazed at what you can acheive in life.
