    I have always had many dreams and goals in my life. I have now realized that I cannot always have what I want in life as it can then become too complex and complicated. I think this is because every one wants to aim for the best in all their dreams,but as we grow older we realize that not everything is that easy. I also think that we all have to be successful in order to fulfil these dreams in our lives. A few of them include starting a career in hospitality business and succeeding in creating my own company.
