One may achieve everything in his life but not his dreams. And one may achieve his dreams but not everything. Still, the later one is happy. That is the power of achieving one’s own dream. In this world, we can count the number of people but the number of dreams we human see is uncountable.
The dream doesn’t see the status of the person. It does not discriminate based on your color. It doesn’t ask you your caste. It just visits you in the silence and peaceful hours of your life.
There is no restriction imposed on an individual to see a dream. A dream can be for the family. A dream can be for friends. A dream can be for love. A dream can be for himself. No one has restrictions to visualize a dream then why do we restrict them to achieve. Why do we don’t go an extra mile to convert our dreams into reality? Why do we regret of not achieving those dreams buried deep in our heart?
This is a story of a young boy. Born and brought up in a well-to-do family. He was youngest amongst all. Always loved and pampered by his family, his all wishes were fulfilled. On his every birthday, he always had one common dialogue with his father.
Dad: What do you want as a present for your birthday?
Son: I want a remote-control car.
Dad: What do you dream to become in your life?
Son: Car racer. Will I be able to achieve it one day?
Dad: If you dream it. You will do it. And if you do it. You will achieve it.
As he grew up, gifts changed from remote control car to real car, but the question of the son remained the same. And so, the answer of the father. On his 21st b'day when he was gifted a car by his father, he finally asked his father “Dad, you always had the same answer to my question. Why?”
Father said “Son, dreams are very delicate thoughts. We as a parent needs to take utmost care to ensure that their children dreams are fulfilled. This process of achieving one own dream starts at that very moment when the seeds of thought are sown. My answer was same because it is your dream and I can only make you capable to achieve it. I can be your guide. I can be your mentor. But in the end, you will have to work to achieve it.
Son: But how did you nurture me for my dreams by just four words?
Father: Those four words are the magical words. When I said, “If you dream it” it made you think that you need to dream first if you want to achieve something. Hence, to dream is the first stage for every achievement. Second, “you will do it”. It grew confidence in you that you can do it. Many dreams get shattered due to lack of confidence in ourselves. The third line is the most important line during the process of converting your dream into reality. No matter how determined you are with your dreams. No matter how confident you are. Until and unless “You Do It” you will not achieve it. Many get failed during this stage. They believe dreams are achieved by dreaming about it. It is not. It is achieved by putting necessary efforts to achieve it.
Son: What about the fourth line “You will achieve it.”
Father: It is the outcome of the third line.
Son hugged his father.

We all pass through a stage when we have to work for someone else dreams. It is upon us either to accept that or to believe in ourselves and work harder to achieve our own.
