"Please, stop following your dreams!"

Please, stop following your dreams!, article.
Jiminy Cricket (“When you wish upon a star…”) would not be happy with me, but the truth is, I’m getting tired of people wasting their lives following dreams they’ll never achieve.  I have screenplays on my desk from writers who “have a dream” about writing a Hollywood screenplay, but aren’t interested in actually attending a writing class.  I met an actor recently who left his wife and young son to pursue his dream of an acting career.  The problem is, he has absolutely no talent.

Martin Luther King in the U.S. "I have a dream."

Not just _have_ a dream, he was walking the walk as well as talking the talk.

Yeah, but he had the raw personality power and drive to make the impact!

This is similar to what parents do, telling their children they can be anything they want when that's not true.

Even the cricket stipulated "When your heart is in your dreams..."

What difference does that make? You could have all the heart in the world and it won't make a difference without actual talent.
