Often the pace of each day comes with a list of responsibilities and duties, leaving little or no time for dreaming. The imageries of success could be for better employment possibilities, aspirations to make our families proud of us, to be the first in our families to pursue a post-secondary education degree or diploma, or even to own our own business. The reasons we all desire success are as numerous as the stars in the sky.
From a career perspective, we daydream about what life could be like in the future if only we could fulfill our dreams. Many times, the stark reality of our current lives keeps us fixed and gripped with fear or apprehension, causing us to avoid our futures and to stop dreaming.
