Lesson Excerpt:

Everyone has personal dreams.

One person may want to be a doctor or a lawyer, while
another may want to play in the NFL. Another person may
want to be a teacher, while yet another may want to be a
stay-at-home Mom.

Some may want to own a home on the beach, and some may want to take annual trips
to the mountains to snowboard. Our personal dreams give us hope and may provide
the incentive to stay in school or work harder to improve our grades.

Whatever our dreams, we can only accomplish them if we have a plan to do it.
