Remember the classic question from our parents and relatives when we were young: “What do you want to be when you grow up?” As kids, we had big dreams and wild imaginations. We wanted to be astronauts, rock stars, or superheroes. But as we grow older, our dreams often shift or get put on hold due to various circumstances. We may face rejections, failures, or setbacks that make us lose faith in our dreams. But what if we can shape our dreams to align with our vision?
On the podcast, Melissa shares her personal journey and struggle while pursuing her dream of becoming an astronaut. She realized that her dream was shaping her, instead of the other way around. She learned to embrace her true self and passions and to shape her dream accordingly.
