Dreams are the reason for living, aren't they? Having them squished really hurts, but one has to try.
but sometimes is ****ing scary as well...

definatly! It has taken me 3 years of putting off my applications, almost getting there and backing out to finally say "screw it I'm doing it anyway." You just have to take the plunge, expect the worst and hope for the best. What is it your scared of?

I want to be a doctor....and have been like this since I Year 10 (in Yr 11 now)

I was highly fluctuant as a child however!! I can remember wanting to be a pilot for ages but then realising I wanted to do something more rewarding in life - something where I could make a difference, so I chose Medicine. My parents are both doctors, and I find their work facsinating!
errrrm how exactly is being a doctor more rewarding than being a pilot? Hard to say unless you have experience of both!

Scared of not being good enough mainly... of trying so hard and failing...

Each to their own. I'd cry with boredom.

Not everyone fails at everything because they aren't good enough. Look at it as trying to find out your 'level' in life. Always aim high, and keep aiming higher. If you fail, keep trying. Don't ever give up until they slam the door in your face. Sometimes that counts for just as much as ability. Not trying for fear of failing would be a shame.

Do most people know what they want to do in life? Or are you completely unsure? Do you have a particular dream that you would love to achieve, but that is unrealistic?
in a few years i might quit the council and work 4 myself.

You are so right! But if I aim high and I fail, I can just imagine people wondering why I bothered to aim high in the first place- insecurity I guess, but nevertheless...

the only thing people will wonder is:

1. how you have the guts to do it
2. why they don't

There is nothing wrong with trying, and don't listen to anyone who says otherwise. Always aim high, never be content with taking something less or coming in 2nd.

Not sure, it's anathema to the way i've been brought up I guess. I know some people see it as adventure, or for a career path, but it's the whole killing people thing, along with the institutionalisation (a word?) where you're trained to follow orders unquestioningly. For me it just wouldn't fit.
Much rather the warm, safe, ivory towered world of academic research into things written over 1500 years ago.

One of my uni classmates wants to be an astronaut. I laugh at his over ambitious dreams while other classmates get jobs in top notch space companies and he continues his banal job in a shop bossing people around. I have a feeling though that he will get close...nothing wrong with aiming this high methinx.

Personally I have no particular ambition, but instead small shortterm dreams that help push me along. My most recent one being to get my motorbike licence and I'm 3/4 of the way there.

1. You make the orders as an officer
2. Yes you may kill people but its hardly the stigma that is circulated by the media.
3. Not all of it is institionalised, that it an assumption
4. The forces have a shed load to offer anyone, from working in an office at the MoD pushing papers, to controlling fast jets in a bunker, to fixing weaponry on the field.

But, it isn't for everyone. Variety is the spice of life!
