Dream Recalibration... or rather, Path Recalibration

Was talking to a friend of mine yesterday. And he said he felt a little lost. When asked to expound on it, he said, he felt that, he had a dream, but what he was doing didn't seem to be getting him anywhere near it. Also, his walk in life showed him that he wasn't good enough to fulfill his dreams. "I'm not one of the best artists out there," he said. "I'm not even one of the best at stories."

He's better now. And just for the record, he may not be a great artist or writer, but he's a great motivator (+10 morale area of effect). I seem to have several friends like that. Nice! And as I pointed out to him, that's why we're a team. Because the combined skills of a team entity is better than an individual.

But this got me thinking, what are my dreams? Am I on the path to reaching it? Or am I allowing myself to be swayed to a different direction by what I think is necessity? By what I think it takes to keep my company afloat? I think it's good to verbalize the dream every now and then to remind us where we're trying to go. Also, I think it's good to verbalize the dream to friends because sometimes, it takes more than just the individual to reach it. And friends, if they truly are friends, would be more than happy to help you reach your dreams.

So let me start by telling you my dream.

Short answer: To change the world.

In detail: I'd like to influence the minds and hearts of people, to cause them to change for the better, to instill in them chivalry, goodness and virtue; to remember the value of God, family, and friends; and to keep them believing in the power of love, in the worth of values, and in the truth that dreams do come true. And I'd like to do that through stories.

My friend's dream isn't far from mine. He wants to focus on games, particularly, as is medium. And his focus is on the young, to instill honor, respect and love. And we'll do something. We'll collaborate, just like we did in high school.

What about you? What's your dream? Verbalize! Maybe we can help each other out. :)
