Is there anything you wanted to be, but you realize you just aren't that guy? (eg a dream job, beauty, person that you liked)

I wish I was someone everyone likes. There's only one person I know who seems to be friends with everyone. In a way I suppose I've always wanted to feel cool, and feel like I'm worth something or people care about me, but I've come to realise I've already got that in a very few special people in my life instead of lots.

I always dreamed of becoming the next famous football player in the world, just like Pele, Ronaldo, or my favorite players London Donovan and Freddy Montero. Due to my poor health choices I will never become one.

I had the dream that I'd be the best at everything -- that I'd be perfect. Bu then I had to face reality; that's never going to happen.

I use to dream of being a police man, up until I learned about all the things they go through...nowadays I dream of becoming a voice actor.

Yes.
It took me a while to realize that any of my ideal careers won't happen. It's my own fault, for not studying harder. T:

No. Believing you can't be who you want to be is the very thing preventing you.

I wanted to date the most popular guy back in high school...but I knew it wouldn't happen, because we were both on drastically different sides of high school.

And then there's the dream of becoming a meteorologist. I am not a good math person, therefore I can't be a "weather scientist".

A lot of the careers I wanted I figured out I just can't do. Id like to be really smart, likable and know a lot of things, but it's kinda unrealistic.

There's nothing you can't be if you don't want it enough. If it is truly what you want, you will ensure that things go in the direction. If not... you don't really wanna be/do that. To say that you can't inhibits you and prevents growth. While on the other hand, the power of positive thinking is positively powerful.

Yes, but I mean stuff that you can't control. For example, I can't have facial hair or be pretty, even if I worked really really hard to have it. Though unless you had like cortisone or something but that's not what I meant.

I don't know... there's really not *that* many things that you want to be but there's absolutely no way to get it. If such things exist, then perhaps the idea should be to try to overcome it to achieve the most similar result possible. It's the end of the year so hopefully 2013 will be a good time for me to try again at some things that I'm bad at... such as trying new things and forcing myself out of my comfort zone so I won't miss out various kinds of opportunities!

As a younger child, I, admittedly, wanted to be someone people not only liked, but admired and strive to be, as there were many people that I also idolized. Not to say that I don't want this now or feel that I can't achieve it, but the fact that it's such a lofty goal in essence that can be achieved but will extremely difficult to achieve hinders me mentally and emotionally.

The short answer is yes, but what I wanted to happen never really happened due to circumstances out of my control. Nothing to do with careers or anything; I feel like if anyone able to pursue a career works hard enough for it, they've got a decent change of getting there, within reason. For me it was something much more simple and something taken for granted by a lot of people. I definitely had the desire to make it happen and honestly, it should have happened, but it just didn't work out for me.

And yes I'm aware that this post is really not hugely informative given that I've not said what 'it' is. d:

I wish I was someone large and in charge, with the massive bank account to match. I also wish I was cute, fashionable, and of the opposite gender. Add to that, I wish I was one of those super-genius kids who studied calculus and nuclear physics at age six or something.

I kind of want to be a geologist, but I'm terrible at math, so I know my passion for rocks won't do much good in that field. Now I am aiming to be a herpetologist or something. I really want to get a college degree, but only if it has something to do with lizards, plants, or music. :\ May be hard to do.

Does wanting to be a witch, wizard, Saiyan and Pokemon Master count?

If not then I guess I always wanted to be effortlessly charming and confident. I wanted things to come easily to me like they seem to come easily to other people. Instead, I'm quiet and unsure of myself, and my life is dedicated to trying to change that.
