-Walt Disney had a dream first. Then, he made plans to achieve that dream. "Change your plan. Keep your dream" is a very good saying. He points out the importance of dreams.

-No, I mean your personal goals.
-Oh. I think you're right.


If you dream it, you can do it. Because the first step of achievement is having a goal. If you have a goal, then you can reach your goal by working hard. You must make plans to reach your goal.

You can change your plans but you mustn't change your dreams.
