Dreams are Reachable

One person working toward a dream is worth 99 people just working.

Lani Kraus, writer

Dreams give you purpose - something to strive for. You continuously grow, reaching for this goal. Sometimes the goal comes easily. For many, the goal seems out of reach. This is how I feel right now - my dreams are unreachable. But, from experience, I know that if I work at them, little by little, dreams are reachable! I read that -- if you write down your dream, break it up into attainable pieces, and look at the parts instead of the whole thing -- as you cross off the parts accomplished, you can see that this dream can be realized.

Nothing has come easily to me. I've had to work hard for everything I have received in my life. I'm not complaining. This has made me a stronger person. For example, I paid my way through college. Yes, I didn't get top grades, but okay grades. But yet, I appreciate what it took for me to get that degree, and it wasn't just studying. I always envied girls in my house that had brand new clothes and nice cars. I wore t-shirts and jeans, and drove a beater car. I had to work instead of party. Since I worked so hard to get through school, I know I accomplished something great!

You can also realize your dreams! It may take a lot of work and time, but, in the end, it is so worth it! Dream Big! Reach for the Stars!

Money Savings Tip

Before you use a coupon, check to see what quantity is really cheaper. Sometimes it pays to use the coupon for the smaller item.
