The Impact of Dreams On People
There is a great impact of dreams on people it might be a positive or negative. It creates an overview of each person’s life. Having a dream is having something to look up on to, a vision of the future on what you wanted to happen. Without a dream, your life may be a circus tumbling up and down, swinging side by side. You don’t have any focus at all of what do you really wanted for your future.
There is really a big difference of a person with a dream and without. A person with a dream is more focused and have a clear vision to where he is heading to. Let’s say, “target locked” all you have then to do is to pull the trigger and fire at it. Unlike people without dreams, they will just pull the trigger and fire without any direction at all even if they hit nothing. Just waiting for the lucky pot to be hit.
When following your dreams, it is important to know first what you really desire. It will be your quest to follow.

The attitude of “I’ll do it later”, “There’s still plenty of time”. It decreases your drive in working for your dreams.
- Low Self – Confidence
Letting yourself down, you are allowing it to absorb your thinking that you can’t make it, even if you do. But afraid to show it because it might let others criticized you and laugh at you. You are afraid to go out of your shell and your comfort zone.
