Found these lines at the last page of my old notebook:
The path to a dream is travelled by belief and courage, persistence and hard work.
It is conquered with a willingness to face challenges and take chances, to fail and try again and again.
Along the way, you may have to confront doubts, setbacks, and unfairness.
But when the path comes to an end, you will find that there is no greater joy than making you dream come true.
