Finding Your Dreams in the Real World

Updated on July 6, 2013
Believe in yourself that you can achieve anything in your life. Go out and make your dreams come true.
Believe in yourself that you can achieve anything in your life. Go out and make your dreams come true.

If you will be given a chance to see your dreams come true, would you take it? I probably would. But what if there is one condition: What if they will take reality out your life?

There was once a small sleepy village who lived a very simple way of life. They just relied on fruits and vegetables to eat and river for their water.

Like many ordinary and normal poor people, they also wanted everything in life such as comfy beds, beautiful houses with a nice garden, delicious foods to eat and wines to drink, and everything they could imagine.

One day, an old man discovered a well not far from the place. Then after a couple of days, they also discovered that the well does not only supply their needs for water but also has magical powers.

They would drink the water and think of the things they wanted until they would fall asleep. The magic works only when they were sleeping by fulfilling the villager’s greatest desire in life.

Everything they would imagine would come to them, living in a luxurious way of life, with tiaras adored on their head, sleeping on the softest bed ever made, and non-stop parties.

But sad to say, they have to wake up again and see the reality of their life. So they would drink again and sleep. Until such time they noticed that time flew so fast. They grew weaker and weaker for the lack of activities and real food. They just wanted to sleep and escape reality.

One by one, the people in this village died. The traces of their voices were all now covered by shrubs and tall trees. And the well was hidden again for the good of mankind.

We are living in reality. What you see around you is real. Escaping is not the solution to make all our dreams come true.

It's a matter of hard work and dedication to achieve our goals in life. If we sleep and let opportunities pass by, we would wake up one day and see that it’s already too late. What I've learned from the story is even though our life is not the way we wanted it to be; we have all the powers to change it.

We will not rely to others to be successful. This is a tough world we are living in and people who saw others going fast to the top will make a way to push them down. But deep within us is the hope and determination that they could not take.

Take it as a weapon and change your life to the way you wanted it to be.

Wake up and find your dreams!

      Hello Tiff,

      I am so happy that you read my hubs. Your message is great. It's all in how we interpret and choose to react. Attitude plays a major role in reaching towards success

      I love writting related to's all in how YOU interpret & how you CHOOSE to react. Today's society is very 'entightled' & want things 'given' to them. Nobody's road is 'easy' but ones perspective on it can sure change the journey!!

      Unknown spy, sometimes i also like staying in fantasy as in this space i can control everything especially in fulfilling my hopes & dreams...but sad to know that life isn't like that. We need to be strong in the real world in order to achieve our dreams. More power!

      Thank you so much LetitiaFT! It's so nice to hear such kind words, for taking time to browse my other hubs. Viruses are the major harm, the evils of computer system. In my opinion, we can protect ourself from computers by not storing confidential files and important data. Hackers are everywhere! :)

      Very nice tale. I had just seen your other hub on how to protect your computer, and it occured to me I'd like to see one on how to protect onesself from computers, as in those chronophageous contraptions that steep us in the illusion that we're doing something when we're not (even more insidiously than last century's evil invention, the television). Your hub is an antidote.

      Yes Rosalinem. its how you perceive the world. I remember a man from our place, his family was poor and he thought he couldn't go to college. But for his hardwork, (working on other people while studying) and with his scholarship,he graduated on a civil engg course. and now, he's a very successful person working abroad. You see, if he just waited for his destiny, he wouldn't have gotten even to college.
