7 Hacks to Make Your Dreams Come True
The Teenager Today|May 2021
Dreams are screenplays that our brain creates while we sleep. Some are frightening, while many could be romantic, funny, playful, moralistic, or occasionally even outlandish. You dream because your mind likes to conjure up images and dialogues about your day as well as things that might happen tomorrow; but more than these simple events and occurrences, your dreams could represent unfulfilled desires and wishes that you’re out of sync with when you’re awake. Our dreams are always trying to tell us something.
Dr Shefali Batra

What do you dream about usually?

We oftentimes use the word ‘dreams’ synonymously with wishes and desires. You may not have actually envisioned these in your sleep like a classic dream. But if you really think hard enough about something, it invariably frequents your subconscious mind while you’re in your state of slumber. What have your dream themes been?

  • Being the most desirable friend in the group?

  • Doing well in your exams and excelling?

  • Winning in extra-curricular contests?

  • Being able to run the marathon?

  • Being rich and famous?

  • Being a superstar?

  • Being happy?

No matter what your dream theme is, know that anything you desire, can come true. Here are 7 steps to help you achieve your dreams.

Step 1: Peel the onion!

This isn’t about edible onions in the kitchen that make you cry when you peel them! It means being very clear about what you want, and removing the extra layers that cover up your real goal. For example, you might dream of not being bullied anymore, or being the smartest kid around the block; but that is an outcome of achieving something else that will make you feel confident and clever. The more specific you are about what you want, the easier it will be for you to achieve it.

Step 2: Be the rolling stone

Choose your words with care!

Words are really powerful! They reflect or mirror our thoughts and feelings. So, we have to think about our words, understand our words, watch and weigh our words. Words are containers for power, and so we have to decide what sort of power we want our words to carry. Our words can augment or diminish our level of contentment. They can shape the answers to our prayers and have a positive or negative upshot of our future. One might say that our words are like a movie screen that uncovers what we have been thinking and our attitudes. The saying, “Watch your words or your words might drown you” is very true.

THE ART OF TRUE GIVING

Derived from the Latin word carus and the old French word chariteÌ, ‘charity’ originally meant love and compassion. So naturally, it became an important tenet in every religious text to encourage benevolent action and generous donations to the needy. Whatever be the notion of charity in people’s minds, it is always defined by two words — ‘voluntary’ and ‘giving’ — and therein, lies the beauty of charity.

Alfiya Pathan Nagpur's Teenage Boxing Star

There was a time when boxing was always considered a male preserve. It was a strong belief that women’s bodies were too frail to box. The decision to grant it recognition for the Olympics inspired many enthusiastic women who were previously discouraged from considering combat sports as a career. Earlier, girls thought that women could not box, but now there are role models for them. Some of boxing’s biggest female stars have stepped into the ring and answered the bell even during pandemic times.

Rishabh Pant From A Brat To Brilliant

A tour Down Under may prove to be the Waterloo for many a cricketer not only because the Australians play very competitive cricket but also because the pitches there are fast and bouncy. While it may be a paradise for the faster bowlers it may be a deluge for batsmen whose batting technique lacks the capability to handle the short-pitched deliveries — used mercilessly and frequently by the Australian bowlers.

GRAB Every Opportunity

I have heard many people complaining that there is no opportunity for them as someone is already doing what they always wanted to do. But they don’t realize that they must grab the opportunity. When I started my training programme, there were many established trainers in the field already. But I knew that my story is different from theirs. Even if the stories were similar, I can say it differently.

क्या ऑक्टोपस सपने देखते हैं?

ऑक्टोपस सपने देखते हैं या नहीं, यह तो अभी पता नहीं चल पाया है लेकिन वैज्ञानिक इस गुत्थी को सुलझाने की ओर बढ़े हैं। आईसाइंस (iScience) में प्रकाशित हालिया अध्ययन बताता है कि मनुष्यों की तरह ऑक्टोपस भी नींद की दो अवस्थाओं का अनुभव करते हैं -सक्रिय नींद और शांत नींद । लेकिन मनुष्यों और ऑक्टोपस, दोनों में इस दो अवस्था वाली नींद का विकास स्वतंत्र रूप से हुआ होगा, क्योंकि ये दोनों जैव-विकास में लगभग 50 करोड़ वर्ष पूर्व अलग-अलग हो चुके थे।

कवि को जीवन का व्यापक अनुभव है और इसीलिए देश की सीमा पर ड्यूटी दे रहा जवान और उसका दर्द भी बार-बार उनकी कविता में झलकता है। इस संदर्भ में 'जवान' कविता की पंक्तियाँ दृष्टव्य है-"बर्फ बीच सुलगता/जो जल के पार भी आग उगलता/खेत की मेड़ों पर बिल बनाकर रक्षा करता" और "अंधकार में जागनेवाला/जीता प्राण को मुट्ठी में बाँध हरदम" वह जवान। यह इसलिए भी संभव है कि रविन्द्र कुमार जैसे नौजवान गाँव की पृष्ठभूमि से अनेक बाधाओं को पार करते हुए यहाँ तक पहुंचे हैं।
