There was a young man born in a poor family, as a result, his school career was continually interrupted.
Once he was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up , That night he write a seven--page paper describing his goal of some day owing a horse ranch, he writehis dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch , then he drew a detailed floor plan for a 4,000--square--foot house that would sit on a 200-acre dream ranch . he put a great deal of his heart into the project and the next day he handed it in to his techer.
Two days later, he received his paper back,on the front page was a large red F with a note that read " see me after class" the boy with dream went to see the techer after class and asked "why did i receive an F ?", the techer said "this is an unrealistic dream for young boy like you " you have no money you have no resouces from your family, there is no way you could ever do it ,then the techer added "if you rewrite this paper with a more realistic goal, i will reconside your grade"
The boy went home and thought about it long and hard . he asked his father what he should do, his farther said , '' look ,son,you have to make up your own mind on this , however, i think it is very importent decision for you "
Finally, after sitting with it for a week, the boy turned in the same paper,making no changes at all. he stated , " you can keep the F and i will keep my dream ".
Recollecting the story , writer was sitting in Boy's 4,000--square--foot house in the middle of 200-acre ranch Two summers ago , that same school teacher brought 30 Kids to camp out on his ranch . when the teacher was leaving ,ha said " look , Monty ,i can teel you this now, when i was your tezcher ,i was something of a dream stealer. During those years ,i stole a lot of Kids' dreams,fortunately, you had enough gumption not to give up on yours."
他提出了大量的，他的心爲這個項目和第二天交給了老師。兩天後他拿回了報告。封面上是一個又紅又大的F和一個便條。”下課後來見我。” 懷着夢想的男孩下課後去見老師問，“爲什麼給我不及格？” 老師說，“這是一個不切實際的夢想，一個年輕的男孩像你。你沒有錢。你沒有資源來自你的家庭。你沒有辦法做到。”接着他又說，“如果你重新寫一個比較現實的目標，我會重新考慮你的分數。”男孩回到家裏，思考了很久。他問他的父親他應該怎麼做。他的父親說，“聽着，兒子，你必須使你自己的想法在這。然而，我認爲這是一個非常重要的決定，你。”最後，一個星期後，他把原來的紙，沒有任何變化。他說，“你不及格，我會堅持我的夢想。”回憶這個故事，我的朋友和我正坐在他的佔地4000平方英尺的房子中間的一個200英畝的牧場。兩年前的夏天，那位老師帶了30個孩子在他的農場露營。當老師離開的時候，他說，“看，蒙蒂，我現在可以告訴你了。當我是你的老師，我是一個夢想的小偷。在那些年裏，我偷了很多孩子們的夢想。幸虧你有這個毅力堅持自己的夢想。”
