d is for dream
Due to the course in which my life has run, I've been doing a lot of thinking today about dreams and people who do whatever they can to follow theirs.
I am primarily talking about following dreams when it comes to careers and ultimately being happy. In my opinion, if you aren't happy in your career, you probably won't be happy in the long run.
Many of the greats had a really hard time before they ended up where they are/were when they left us. It really amazes me how they didn't give up.
I wonder how many great people there are out there, who could be doing great things, given the opportunity, and how many of them are on the verge of just saying "fuck it".
Maybe not even realising that it could be right there. The next step, the next door. Maybe they'll never know, but it's the gamble of success the next possible day versus years more of defeat.
