From Henry Ford’s autobiography, My Life and Work:

My father offered me forty acres of timber land, provided I gave up being a machinist.

What would have happened if Ford had followed his father’s advice? What if he gave up his love for automobiles to pursue a life as a farmer? The answer is simple…there would be no Ford Motor Company.

Your dreams can be stymied in a variety of ways; sadly, parents can be the culprit in this regard. Instead of analyzing the talents of a child and promoting them, they will often discourage the developments of their son/daughter.
