Your dreams or life aspirations, is it same as when u were a kid? I am sure it would have changed now.
There is a dialogue in “Zindagi Milegi Na Dubara” movie – “Dreams change baby”. If you look back in your life your dream and life aspirations change almost every 5 years.
When I was a kid, I wanted to become a fighter pilot, went to Sainik School (Military School) to fulfill it. But by the time reached Class 10th, it got changed drastically I no longer wanted a strict disciplined life and went for IIT (IT-BHU) and did engineering.
While in college, all we wanted was a decent paycheck in MNC, or go for a Master’s degree to get a better job in the US. And thought once we have a good paying job we will live happily ever after.
But again expectations increased once we achieved it. If you realize dreams or expectations changes based on where we have reached and our peers. This is true for all including the richest to the poorest.
So is it good or bad? I think it’s good we are always trying to improve ourselves but this comes with a lot of dissatisfaction, stress, and pressure to keep satisfying ourselves.
In a true sense these are not dreams, don’t you think our dreams should be much bigger than any of these materialistic things. Or dreams are a set of accomplishment bond together?
