Making Your Dreams Come True

Hey how’s it going

Today I want to share with you a video I came across on You Tube, well a series of videos title “Making Your Dreams Come True” presented by Jack Canfield co-author of the Chicken Soup For The Soul series of books which have sold millions of copies

This is the introduction and he shares a bit about him self.

He also shared a story of a boy

When I was a high school student there was a kid in my class that moved around and lived in the back of a truck,

his dad was a trainer,and he never lived anywhere more than a couple of months.So would never same at a school  more than a couple of months.

He had this dream though, he wanted to race or breedracing horses

The teacher at the school ask the kids to write a paper on “Wwhat do you want to do when you go up”

He got very excited cuz this was a chance to really go for his dream.

So he wrote down I want to raise thorough bred racing horses, and he drew a major diagram of  two hundred acre ranch with four thousand square foot house, and a race track with sables, and offices etc

It was very exciting  and he handed it in.

He got it back a week later with an F and a note “see me after class”

So he saw the  teacher and asked “how come i got an F?”

he said “You’re a poor kid living off the back of the truck, you know what land costs in this valley? do you know what it cost for breeding stock and for stud fees? This is an unrealistic dream for a young man like you. There’s no way you could ever achieve this. And it’s my job as a teacher to make sure you’re not go to be disappointed.”

“So I want you to write a more realistic dream for yourself and i’ll give you a higher grade.”


Well he went home any talked to his dad he said ” what should I do?”

His father said “I can’t tell you what to do with your life, but I will tell you this whatever you decide is probably gonna effect the rest of the your life, so think hard about it.”

He thought, he thought, and he thought. Now after week he went back to the teacher with the exact same paper

Hhe said “You can keep the F and I’m keeping my dream”

Years later he now has

  • four thousand square foot house
  • an is two hundred for acreage
  • income was over six

The reality is this poor boy made his dreams come true.

How did he do it?

Well that’s what you are going to find out in this series


Enjoy and have a fabulous day
