Don't quit on your dream

I have always dreamt of becoming an artist. But I have not been successful yet.

Many people have a dream. They try to fulfil their dream, but a lot of people fail.

There could be many reasons why they fail, such as work, school or simply because they don't have the time to pursue their dream.

Should they give up on their dream then? Absolutely not!

They can chase their dream even if they have to work or go to school - it just means they have to work harder.

Fulfilling a dream is never going to be easy.

Having a dream is important in life. Everybody should dream of becoming someone or achieving something.

If you don't dream, then life is going to be a lot less interesting. So pursue your dream!

From the Editor

Thanks for your wonderful letter, Wales. I am a big believer in dreams. It's important to dream because when you dream you are creating a vision for your future.

A dream - or thought - is the very first step in making something happen. Once you have worked out your dream, then share it with others. Words help to make that dream more concrete. And from there the next step is action - creating it in real life.

So that's the three-step plan to creating the life you want: thoughts, words, and then action.

And it all starts in your head, with a dream.
