There Are Two Types Of Dreamers In This World And Only One Attains Them

Success comes with down falls, but those who truly want it will know it's worth it.

There Are Two Types Of Dreamers In This World And Only One Attains Them
Casey Whoolery-Pratt

If there was anything in life that spoke to me most, it was what I learned the time I decided to go to a business convention alone. I was taught about the two types of dreamers that exist in this world. It was so empowering because I came to the realization that this theory was actually true. It scared me but motivated me at the same time. With that being said, I had to share it with the rest of the world because they deserve to know, too.

1.The type that imagine the biggest dreams they can, and strives everyday to attain them. No matter what.

This type of dreamer will stop at no costs until they reach their goals. They don't fear an ounce of failure because they know it is the best form of education and with out it they will never reach success. These people will strive every second of every day to someday accomplish the things they have always imagined for themselves. They are prideful in, both, their failures and their successes because their hustle remained strong enough to get them to where they are now. No obstacle will ever be big enough to stop them, maybe just to slow them down to rethink their approach to conquer it.

Everybody has hopes and dreams for themselves but only a small amount have the mindset like this one.

2. The type that imagine the biggest dreams they can, but gets fearful.

These people fear failure, they fear society, they fear negative opinions, and they fear success. Why would these people be scared of success, though? They know with success comes a reputation and being held to the same standard at all times. Holding an image is hard to do and to even think about. Adding on the opinions of society makes keeping that reputation hard. All of these unpleasant thoughts create lack of motivation, and even the highest rate of procrastination. These people will tell themselves that tomorrow will be a better time to start the road to their future. They do this because they know if they push it for another day, they don't have to deal with those fears right then and there.

Unfortunately, for a lot of these types of dreamers, that "tomorrow" never actually comes around because it always gets pushed toward a "better time".

The moral of this story is that there is no better time to reach for the stars than right now. Success comes with down falls, but those who truly want it will know it's worth it. So, why fear failure when it's the best form of education? Fear missing out, instead. Be afraid of the thought of never living to see your hopes of a bright future come true. Use this type of fear to fuel you and push you to strive to be the dreamer everyone wants to be.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
