The author stated that people should not underestimate their childhood dream. He analyzed that the people who accomplished great works in human history were the ones who did not lose their childhood dreams. He continued to say that they were the ones who devoted their lives to seeking their dreams.
We all have dreams in our childhood. There are innocent ones, such as "I want to be like my mother or father", or "I want to be a policeman and protect good people from bad people." Some of them are big dreams, such as "I hope to be like Julius Caesar." Grownups do not deny children's dreams. Almost all adults do not deny children's dreams and tell them that their dream would come true some day.
However, after growing up, people started to be negative to other's dreams. They started to think negatively about dreams in general. People often do not want to discuss others' dreams. "You must be dreaming," they say, "You are daydreaming." If I say, "I want to unite the world like Nobunaga Oda, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and Ieyasu Tokugawa unified Japan," you may not talk seriously with me the next day. I just listed three people who unified Japan in the 17th century. Oda was a small, local lord in central Japan. Toyotomi was the son of a farmer family. Tokugawa was a hostage in his enemy country. If they did not dream of unifying Japan, they would not have been the people who did so. The 20th century's great scientists, including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Albert Einstein, were driven by their dreams, not by their calculations.
When I think of myself in the past, the real reason why I wanted to stay in San Francisco, despite of my Japanese nationality, was not because I had a good job opportunity, or for family reasons, but because I had grown up watching American TV programs, such as "The Combat," "The Mission Impossible," "Time Tunnel," and "Twilight Zone." My vague childhood dream was to one day live in the United States. It seemed to be my driving force to obtain an international job and station myself in the United States. We should cherish and respect our childhood dreams.
