The people who try to dissuade you from pursuing your dreams, downplay your abilities the most or tell you that you don’t have what it takes to bring them to pass are often those who aren’t doing much with their lives. Misery definitely loves company! Most people often feel threatened when those around them seek to grow or do more with their lives because it forces them to examine their own lives or exposes their insecurities and fears.
Wishes. When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for... unless it's death by meteor.
