"Dreams are successions of images, ideas, emotions and sensations occurring involuntarily in the mind during certain stages of sleep." This is the wikipedia definition of a dream.
Everyone included a toddler dreams everyday. We have dreams while we're working, in school, at home or at work. We dream in the day and also at night! It is not only when we sleep, dream is a process which is happening throughout the day, while you are awake  or while you are asleep.
For me dream is an aspiration of the heart. The innermost desire. When we feel that what we are dreaming is a fairytale, think again, fairytales are made on humans,by humans, are't they? It is an idea, that we are letting out in the world. An idea which we wish to have. Something that we wish to conquer. Once we know our innermost yearning, the dream makes us believe that it is already ours. Once we live in such a feeling, there is nothing that can stop us from reaching the heights of glory. Here, glory is not the fame, but the satisfaction of the self.
Here, I would like to say an example, Shah Rukh Khan, an actor, my inspiration and so of many others has loads of fame. He got this fame because he dreamed of it, and then worked towards it. But, if this fame does not give him satisfaction, then there was no dream since the beginning. A dream gives satisfaction when fulfilled and also while in the process of it being fulfilled. 
But for the dreams you also need faith. Faith in yourself and faith in the God/Almighty/Guru or by what ever name you want to call the eternal energy. You know If you tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe, he'll believe you. But if you tell him a park bench has just been painted, he has to touch it to be sure." This is the power of Faith.

Steve jobs on being fired from Apple said that being fired was like awful tasting medicine, but a patient needs it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. He said, “I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle..."
Always remember, "Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish
” …..and have the power to dream on!

So I would like to conclude by saying, keep dreaming.......and believe that it is for real. Because when you can dream
then you can start, a dream is a wish you make with your heart.

Here is one stanza from one of my favorite songs : 

Have Faith in your dreams and someday,
Your Rainbow will come smiling through,
No matter how your heart is grievin,
If you keep on believing....
The dream that you wish will come true.

Here is the official music video for A Dream is A Wish (the above lyrics are from this song) :

I have been mesmerized by the song skyscraper by Demi Lovato. Her journey in life is truly inspiring and something to learn from. If you have heard the song, you would know how deep the meaning sounds. I was not a big Lovato fan before this, but the message is deep, flying and has touched my heart.
It is like a cry for help from Demi, but she also says that no matter what, she will come out, fly high like a Skyscraper. Inspiration can be found anywhere and everywhere and songs are one of the most soulful ways to convey information. Demi Lovato wrote and recorded it once she went into rehab for emotional issues in  November 2010.  The song has now become Lovato's symbol:  getting help and rising above any issues that everyone is dealing with.

If you have not heard Skyscraper, you are missing on something. A deep, true and inspiring journey :')

Be sure to watch the video as well.....
