I propose an alternative [to waiting], something in between doing nothing and picking the wrong dream: Make a seasonal commitment.
Guess at something that strikes your fancy, based on the possibility that it could be your dream. In other words, experiment. Not in a flaky, non-committal way. Pick something, and commit to it for a season. Call it a seasonal dream, if you want.
This will give you experience, broaden your skill set and teach you the value of commitment. Most likely, this is how you will find your dream. Not by waiting, but by doing.
Here’s one thing you can be sure of: I guarantee you won’t find your dream by standing still.
The Hardest Part of Dreaming by Jeff Goins
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
Young people, get out of your comfort zone. Be willing to try. Be willing to risk and experience failure. I believe in you. I believe that God has great plans for young people.
I believe with all my heart that you have been deceived by the world because our expectations from young people are so low. What are the expectations from teenagers today? Do not get pregnant. Do not get involved in drugs. Do not smoke. Do not drink. Clean the room. Do your assignments. What kind of expectations are those? You are created for more. Young people can do great and mighty things.
If you can overcome the fear in your life and realize God is with you, what will your life be like? In every one God has given a dream. All of you have that dream. But somewhere along the line people have quenched your dream. You used to believe you can do the impossible but now you feel like you are a failure.
I want you, young people, to be a dream releaser to your parents. It is never too late to tell your parents what they can become also. Do you know why? Young people, you are crucial in the lives of your parents. You can tell each other, “Be all that God wants you to be.” Never be paralyzed by the low expectations of the society today that tell you, “You are just a teenager. You are too young.” No. I believe in you.

I dreamt of receiving a box containing wings which, once I wore, made me unstoppable. I dreamt I was able to fly from one great mountain to another, and it was such a joyous ride! Not to mention that the view from the top was breathtaking.
And so this morning, I consulted dreammoods.com to see what it all could possibly mean, if ever it was truly more than just another silly dream of mine and here’s what I got:
To dream that you have wings, suggest new found freedom. You are on the right track and are soaring to success without limitations.
To dream that you are flying, signifies a sense of freedom where you had initially felt restricted and limited.
To see mountains in your dream, signify many major obstacles and challenges that you have to overcome. If you are on top of the mountain, then it indicates that you have achieved and realized your goals. You have recognized your full potential. Alternatively, mountains denote a higher realm of consciousness, knowledge, and spiritual truth.
Honestly, I don’t know if I should be reading much into this. But the thing is that I rarely get dreams like this. My dreams are typically very realistic and blah. And so, I thank God for having this particular dream, as I remember asking Him last night how I was doing and if I was on the right track. So, maybe, just maybe, this is His response to me. :)
