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.

    Dec 19 2011: Hi all, I would like to greet you first. I have just registered to this site. My profile is not filled in yet. I will in a few days.
    But I am lucky to join you here, as the topic touches very essential aspect of human happiness, dignity and human progress in general – attainment of dreams. Having said so, I just want to briefly add some new and important, as I believe, insight. It’s the role of God’s blessing for our success in life. Just a hint: if something went wrong somewhere in your life, no matter how deep you failed, remember, the God is watching us – as I believe, and if you have “credentials” in heaven and if your dream deserves his blessing, - he will help you to attain it by all means.
    Thanks and good luck in your endeavors.
