When dreams don't come true it does not mean dreams were false or unattainable, it means that there was something we missed out while going for them. Perhaps the time was not right, perhaps we underestimated the obstacles or perhaps we did too little or too much. Whatever the reasons the first step must be to resolve that our inability to achieve what we wanted does not lead either to defeatist mentality or ignoring the reality. As Colin Powell rightly said; “A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” We must stand up to the challenge and must know that Rome was not built in a day and that a hard-fought battle defeat that test us ferociously is much better than a victory achieved easily. It may lead to complacency. Remember the words of Jesse Owens: We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.
