I imagine this young boy is dreaming about what he might do when he grows up. We have all had dreams but we don't always have the dicipline to make those dreams come true.
You have to have definite goals. You also have to get off your duff to be a success at anything. You have to start doing something about it now!
If you're going to be a great novelist, you had better practice writing at least one hour a day, starting today. If you plan to be a successful salesman, you'd better call on some prospects today. If you hope some day to own your own business, you'd better decide how much money you'll need to launch yourself, and start saving. There is only one time to take the first step toward realizing your goal. Right this minute!
