I don't know that it is good idea for me to tell people that they can be anything they want to be, that they are free to follow their dreams. Some of us are delusional and our dreams are unrealistic. I might want to be a baseball player and make lots of money playing at a game, but I have no talent for baseball. So I cannot be anything I want to be. I cannot do physics and math, so I don't have the talent to become a physicist. What I can be is all that I am made to be with my unique talents, dormant or realized. As a God believer, I am made with a God plan in mind. The spiritual path is to actualize this potential. But even if you believe in no God, you can only become what your talents allow. To discover, develop and use your gifts for a greater good is a life well lived.
