“Follow your dream.” As kids, as adults, in fact, as humans in general, we have heard the quote so many times that now it has become cliched, and people have stopped believing it. From when an individual is very young, there are a lot of things that he is taught. For example, how he should eat to how he should dress, where and what to study, along with many others.
But the one thing that is instilled in a person’s heart without any pressure from anyone else is a path that they believe they were born to follow, which is, their dream. And regardless of how many times a person has been guided to pursue their dream, not everyone is able to do so.
Part of the reason why people astray from their dream is because they are unable to identify where their passion lies. The other half of the population doesn’t pursue their dream because they are not brave enough to conquer their fears, while the rest of the world forgets that nothing good in life comes easy and there is quite a lot of hard work required to achieve a dream.
Fulfilling all three conditions and on the path of success, the name of Alberto Fabbretti shines bright among those who are passionate, courageous and determined. This young Italian boy not only recognized his dream at a very young age but also had to courage to work hard and turn it to reality.
