“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.”
Do you agree with Walt Disney, the author of this quotation?
For a dream to come true, do you only need courage? Do you just have to pursue your dreams for them to come true? Or is there something else to add to the recipe?
Now it’s your turn: Write what you think is necessary for dreams to come true. If you have a specific dream for yourself, write what will be necessary for you to do so that this dream can come true. You can write about traits such as courage, or you can write out a plan for you to achieve your dream.
