Dream pushers are the kind of people you should surround yourself with.

They are like the correctly numbered dots in connect-the-dots drawings, properly guiding a child in his early attempt to draw basic things.

They are like the shady trees that provide a person shield from the stifling heat of the sun while walking outdoors, giving him a brief but much-needed comfort to be able to go where he wants to go.

They are like brochures that detail the specifications of a popular, newly released smartphone, priming a prospective buyer before he actually spends his hard-earned money to purchase it.

And they are like the gunshot that signals the start of a race, letting the runners know that they have to begin going forward and aim for the win. That with their sincere words of encouragement you gain faith in yourself and in your goals, and the will to succeed supersedes the fear of not making it.

Dream stealers, on the other hand, are the kind of people you should never get near to.

They are like your umbrella peppered with numerous small holes, that instead of being protected from the pouring rain, you get soaked up.

They are like the user manual of your spanking new, top-of-the-line DSLR camera that turns out to be written in a language you barely understand, rendering you disappointment with buying the gadget and confusion as to how to operate it.

And they are like quicksand you accidentally step into and swallows you up, and the more you struggle to get out, the deeper you dig yourself into it. That with their conscious effort to make you feel bad about yourself and your aspirations, you lose sight of the track you must get into, and the fear of not making it obscures the will to succeed.

It is not always easy to spot dream pushers from dream stealers. But you have to realize that in your hands lies what will become of yourself; you can't blame other people if you fail albeit you should be grateful to those who inspire you to continue treading the path to success.
