The future in dreams


Dreams. I believe it's a good thing to have dreams, to follow your dreams, to dream big. If you believe in your dream, see yourself IN that dream, I believe it will come true. I also believe you should follow-through on those dreams you do pursue...don't get distracted and head off in another direction all the time. Yeah, everyone gets distracted at one time or another...but you'll only reach your dream if you really try - if you throw yourself into the belief that it can come true.

I have a current dream....It has to do with the next job I want. I know the place I want to work, in the general department I want to be. I've applied to this company a few times over the past 3 years. I've actually had one in-person and one phone interview...but it hasn't progressed more than that. But I want to work there. I know it's not going to be all peaches and cream there - after all, it is a large association. But I feel it deep inside that this is the place I should be.

Another job there (in my field) just opened up - I sent my resume a few days ago. Now I'm waiting. The waiting is hard. But this time I think I have a better shot. This time I'm approaching things with a positive, sure attitude.

I WILL get into that company. Just you watch me.

update:

Bummer - the job has disappeared from the listing, meaning it's been filled. The very quickness of its filling suggests that an internal candidate stepped up. sigh. But I'm still gonna haunt their job board....I will get in there.

I too believe in the power of dreams.

and I'm sending up all the positive 'getting in' energy I can your way....you will get in when the time is right...it will happen when it happens and not a second before. that's the way.

I've heard it said that dreams and ambitions are rarely the same.

This could be true, but the person to whom this applies would never have the satisfaction of a dream realized.

Work hard, do your best, keep dreaming, and KNOW that a dream can come true.

I fully intend on instilling the following quote into their very beings: "Anything is possible. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. All you have to do is figure out the how."

Good luck! I think you're right...knowing you want something and believing in yourself makes all the difference.

A positive attitude counts for a lot on an interview and even in completing the application. I hope your dream becomes a reality!

Following your dreams is a great idea, no matter what obstacles get in your way. Keep the positive attitude and things will fall into place. Don't mind the little set backs - you will get there (indeed).
