    I feel the "American Dream" is the perspective that a lot of people (not just americans) have of what America is like. It has to do with the freedoms and opportunities that Americans have that are not available in other countries, like women's rights, opportunities for even the poorest high school graduates to earn a college degree, the overall chance to make yourself "anything" you want to be.
    The "personal dream" is what you see yourself accomplishing in your lifetime. What you want to be "when you grow up", what your spouse will be like, and how many children you will have are some examples.
