We are a generation of dreamers. We all come up with get-rich-quick schemes that never actually come to fruition. Now, I’m not saying don’t dream- just dream smart. Here are 5 dreams that you most definitely should forget because they are never going to happen.

1. Winning the Lottery

We have written plenty on the topic, but let us reiterate: IT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN, EVER. You have a 0.000000005% chance of winning. You have a much, much higher chance of getting hit by lightning- twice. Instead of throwing away your money, save it.

2. Taking your small business to Oprah

You have a better chance of winning the lottery. Oprah won’t care about your business idea. Better to just start your small business and do it the old fashioned way- without instant national publicity. You’ll get there, but you’ll have to work for it.

3. Writing The Next Best Seller

We are sure you have a great book idea, but it isn’t that easy. Firstly, you have to know how to write well. Even getting a ghostwriter will undoubtedly require artistic input which unless you have, you will fail without.

Not to mention that picking up on the next literary trend is about as easy as picking up the next fashion trend. You’ll have that one person that will hit the nail on the head, but the rest remain beating around the bush.

4. Splurging

Splurging is fun, but unnecessary. Every once in a while we may feel down and think that we would feel much better doing some shopping.

But remember, you will be getting that credit card bill in the mail by the end of the month and I guarantee it will put you in a worse state than you are at the moment. Unless you can really afford to splurge, better try something free, like meditation, to calm your nerves.

5. Marrying Rich

Sure, you could try. But how many billionaires are you really going to impress? Besides, spending money that someone else earns is not the same as spending money that you earn; it doesn’t come with the same feeling of gratification.

And most likely you will be signing a prenup. How long do you think you can stand your hairy, wrinkly, senile millionaire?
