Dreams are one of the key aspects of what makes us human. Instead of just relying on our instincts and routines we strive to do better, go further, and innovate. If we never had dreams the world would have a dearth of change leaving the human population of earth at a standstill causing it to stop growing completely and eventually die out. Also, if we did not dream of new things to invent we would be unable to adapt to the changing world around us and therefore be put in jeopardy of death. The ability to dream is hardwired into us so that we are able to achieve greater things than the people before us.
The definition of success varies from person to person and from culture to culture. I tend to look at success in a monetary sense, to be successful you have to make a lot of money. My view seems to be common among the american culture, this is probably due to the idolization of the wealthy in the U.S. and we learn from this that people who are rich are happier and more loved. However, some other cultures have a more inclusive definition of success. In this definition they believe that you can achieve success from many things including: happiness, health, and contentment. This definition is most likely the better one and provides a way for anyone to be successful.
A dream is important in either one of the definitions. In a monetary sense, a dream is the beginning of any good business and customers enjoy hearing about a dream of starting a business because it makes them feel that they could do the same. A dream is also important in the more inclusive outlook of success because a dream is still the beginning of success. Since a dream is just “ To contemplate the possibility of doing something or that something might be the case” (Google Dictionary) then anything can be dreamed of. Since the definition of both success and of a dream are
nebulous statements, the possibilities of a dream equalling success are endless.
As I already mentioned dreams are also important...
