What would you tell children about pursuing their Dreams and Changing the World?

Hi everyone,
I'd like to ask you all what you would tell young people, whether your own children or people you've never met - about pursuing their dreams and trying to change the world?

With permission from each of you, I would like to ask to quote some of the answers that are provided in a video I'm creating for a project of mine that is all about encouraging people to pursue their dreams and aiming to better enable them to do what they truly want in life. I'd love to credit each of you by name, but if you'd rather I don't, just let me know.

These quotations will be put alongside some beautiful works of art about dreams to create a kind of 'Dream Wall' that is filmed as part of the video.

I'm looking for any honest feelings you have. And am really excited to see what this great community thinks about something so wonderful and, I think, central to this period of great opportunity.

Thank you so much.

    Nov 21 2011: I gets me a lot lately and the more I think about it the more it seems to natural to act like that .
    Well if I could tell anyone how to live their lives in order to fulfill it to the full capacity I would say " Live your life as a crazy one" .

    If you're asking why ? Well .. Like I said it gets to me a lot lately , the apple commercial that says "Those who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do", and I really believe that somewhere this is the way.

    If you're brave enough , step up ! be different ! think different ! stand up for what you believe in and never give up or give in to the opinion that most people think of.
