So dream big. Of course, family and friends may think you are not being realistic given certainties on the ground. You know what? Their doubts should be inspirational, just work hard to prove them wrong.
Every great achievement was once a ‘pipe dream’ but the dreamer believed and persisted. The dreamer never gave up when people said, ‘It couldn’t be done’. And when it was done, the doubters believed too.
Have you realized that giving up means never moving forward. But you really want to move forward, don’t you? Then believe in your dream and work hard without giving up to prove that it’s no pipe dream.
