Question by Anonymous: Why do I crave such Big and in some people’s minds “unrealistic” goals?
I don’t want to live an ordinary life. I want to accomplish big things with my life despite right now in my life I’m anything but big in my life. I’m a quite highschool senior guy who doesn’t say a peep much of the day. (except with friends at lunch)
Yet I crave big things, I’ve had dreams that a lot of you will consider unrealistic, unlikely such as becoming President of the USA, Becoming a world-wide famous game designer, CEO of my own company.
I’ve had these HUGE dreams for so long, dating back to when I was in 9th grade I dreamed of starting my own videogame company and marketing my own console. I even drew pictures of it, made map-outs of what the controller would look like, and even typed paragraphs on my computer about what the goal of my game company was.
In the later half of 11th grade I got interested in politics. Unlike most people my age, I studied the candidates, went here on the Y!A political section and even made my own personal “political” account for when I cared to discuss politics and presidential candidates. I strongly supported Ron Paul and watched his videos on Youtube WAY to many times, so much, that I could recite some of his lines after hearing it so much.
Since I’m not very sociable you could say- Videogames, writing and politics were my outlets for fun while other people had fun after school talking w/ friends and whatever else they do.
Right now I’m at the point where I think I’ll go into Web design in college but that’s nothing big, that’s nothing like I was envisioning all these years and I don’t know what I’m doing. I have no money, My communication skills are actually not-bad because I have practiced them by myself in my room and w/ my few friends.
I want to get a hold of my life, I keep dreaming of all these great things but what can I do with no money, I don’t know what to do, should I just drop these “big beyond belief” dreams and go into web design?
I do like computers (and btw Yes I have also dreamed of being the next “Bill Gates”)
I’ve also never shared this with anyone I know and talked seriously about it. I mean it sounds a little crazy… I realize that.

what;s so wrong with your big dreams… i say push hard and strive to be all you can, and as long as you don’t cause hurt to anyone in your efforts, even if you never make it, you can still be proud of yourself for trying
