Never stop dreaming

Since I was a child I have always had the biggest dreams. I remember drawing dinosaurs and creating stories during class. It as all about a group of adventurers discovering new worlds. Our ship transformed into a submarine and allowed us to find new creatures.

Growing up, I imagined myself as an electromechanical engineer working with robotics at NASA. When I was finishing my school years, I decided I wanted to be a film director, just like Peter Jackson, capable of creating complex Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) worlds with unforgettable stories.

But my life has turned into a better story. This year I published the Beat the Robots book. When I studying at university I created the biggest robotic contest. I still remember passing a lot of hours building my robot Asimov to pick up balls of different colors. Right now, I’m in Copenhagen learning about critical realism to understand more about the world around us, using my love for role-playing games and my desire to create new entertainment experiences.

Life is never as you dreamed. But if you enjoy your life and understand it, life becomes much better. This is the first out of six posts, which I will publish daily. In these articles, I will discuss the lessons I have learned until now from life and, most important, why I feel a lot of happiness while I write this post.

Sometimes while growing up, our parents, our teachers, our friends try to affect our own dreams. Most of the time they want the best for us, but as we discover in our life paths, only us can determine what is the best for each one of us.

I consider dreams to be the fuel to keep us pursuing a better life. Dreams could be the product of our wild imaginations or of our childhood years, influenced by what we watch, read, feel or hear.

We never stopped imagining ourselves in a different world, dimension or even planet, when we were kids. We had our imagination as our primary source of entertainment, but we loose it when growing up.

So, my dear friend, don’t lose it! Dream and you can get a lot of smiles. When I was a child I dreamed to live in India, such as The Beatles and Steve Jobs. Thank to a scholarship from the Indian Government (ITEC Fellowship program), I spent 8 weeks doing what I like. This experience gave me time to write, without pressure, without deadlines.
