Never ever give up on your dreams. You might have to put them on the back burner for a bit, but don't lose sight of them.
Sometimes those dreams are HUGE or at least appear that way, however if you work towards your dream a little each time pretty soon you'll have reached at least 1 of your dreams and you will see them come true.
I've always wanted a horse of my own. The situation, conditions just weren't quite right. I worked toward having my own horse and my dream came true. That's not my only dream. In fact it has lead me to dream even bigger!
I don't own a saddle, though I'm working on saving enough money to have one made for me. I don't have a ton of acreage, money or even a truck or trailer. That doesn't stop me from taking the step towards those things every day.... and THAT'S the key to reaching your dreams and goals. Taking the step every day towards whatever it is you dream about.
I'm a huge believer in God. I know some aren't and that's ok. I dream of having a lot of acreage, the ability to buy/adopt wild horses and place them back out on the land where they belong. Spread out over different states, and different counties the feral horses and burros can once again roam free without the threat of a helicopter round up and trucked off to who knows where. Is it a BIG dream? Sure it is, one that I work towards every day. Nothing is impossible with God. I have even checked acreage/land prices in several states and read up on some of the laws pertaining to horse ownership in those states. Some of the land is already a ranch with housing, streams or creeks, corrals, hay fields etc. I've also gone as far as pricing non climb fencing and posts in bulk to get an idea of what that would cost.
For someone who didn't come from much and doesn't have much now, when you start reading about properties that are in the millions of dollars, most would go Whoa! That's way out of my price range! For me I think it's a drop in the hat. Always keep a positive thought and outlook towards your dreams.
I dream of having a truck and trailer. Nothing fancy. Just something I can use to haul Cookie or other horses around in when I need to. I already know what kind of truck and trailer I would like to have and how much they cost.
The main thing I think you need for your dreams to come true is hope. Hope is like an ember that keeps burning and ignites your desire to reach your dreams and goals.
I have other dreams too, like adopting and training a wild horse for myself. I dream of entering in the "Extreme Mustang Makeover" and "Mustang Millions". I dream of riding across the states from one coast to the other as well as riding in competitive trail and endurance races.
I have to warn you though about dreams... sometimes you can get carried away. So I suggest working toward one dream at a time, or combining two or three when you can. You might be surprised just how far you can go when you dream BIG.
