I am honored and happy to present the story of one of my most dear friends - Dragos Bratasanu - a NASA International Ambassador and also a great guitarist. He speaks about making your dreams come true with a passion I have never seen in a long time in a person that I know smile.gif



Take the time and you will not regret it - you will most probably pick up your guitar right after watching this smile.gif

"The moment you begin lying to yourself about who you are, about what's important to you, in that moment you have become your most dangerous enemy, attacking from the inside".

Indeed.

Totally amazing, right? biggrin.gif When you get better, we can meet up - all the three of us, if you'd like smile.gif

Glad you liked it guys - this dude's evolution in time was incredible. Back in 2005, none of us, not even him, would've imagined this course of action smile.gif It's funny how life works, right?

One thing that I'll gladly admit has always stood in my way has been finding a new dream since I got injured and couldn't play football at the level I did anymore. I used to have football training 5 times a week and a match in weekends when I was 13, but I then got injured (just before I was supposed to train with Denmark's under 14 national team) when I tore my cruciate ligament. It took ages for them to fix it, and they didn't do a good job, in the end, years later, when I tried to come back, I injured my knee again, few years later, same thing happened again and I needed 2 knee operations over a year to fix it. Now I'm 24 so the dream of playing football for a living is definitely dead, but it keeps haunting me in that I don't feel the same natural talent for other things, so everything else is a lot more work. That's not to say there aren't other dreams, but they just fade in comparison to what I just mentioned.

Now I'm not an "emo" person, so I'll end on a positive not and say that I'm not unhappy about my life at all at the moment. I just have yet to find THE dream. laugh.gif

All in due time, mate smile.gif Indeed, I have never been into the situation of having to give up a dream because of not being able to follow it anymore. but what I know, is that we are plurivalent beings and there's ALWAYS something amazing that we can do smile.gif I think you have the chance to end up as a good guitarist if you stick to it and I am also sure that you can do other things as well, but playing the guitar is what I know about, because it is what you have shown us here smile.gif
