Did you become what you wanted to be as a child?

Did you become what you wanted to be as a child?
Many of us in our childhood are very ambitious, from a young age we have vivid imaginations. Do you ever remember in thinking about getting older and what you wanted to be. In school, we may have had teachers asking what do you want to be when you grow up? Some say "I want to be an astronaut", others may say "I want to be a writer" you may even say you wanted to be an actor or singer. But do we ever follow out what we say as a child?

I still remember those early years, remember being asked and I did have a few ideas what I would like to be or become. I remember when I was asked, at first I did say I wanted to become a stuntman, but as time grew a little this changed to magic then little later I did actually want to be a writer. So it can just show in our growth and our imaginations as a child can soon change as we get older. Some don't become what they wanted to be they go down a different path but often find their own success in life.

Some end up doing the things they don't love, maybe because they want to impress others like you see in some beliefs. For example, a doctor has a son or daughter, he may be a successful doctor and want his son/daughter to follow medicine or similar practice. So what do we do? We should follow what is in our hearts as many do, what would you do and also what did you wanna become and do?


When I was schooling, our teacher always wanted us to write down our ambition in the report card. I guess that many of us wanted to be a billionaire's wife, that was the ambition ! I wrote down as manager or clerk but my teacher said no, those are not the ambitious type. Then I wrote down baker or chef, she gave a nod. I became a housewife instead

Ever since I was a kid, I was never all that ambitious or passionate about having any sort of career. I never really cared about becoming anything when I grew up, and when teachers asked us such questions like "What do you want to be when you get older?" I would just write down things related to stuff I liked at the time. I liked dinosaurs at one age, so I said I wanted to be a paleontologist. Then I started to like food a lot so I said I wanted to be a chef. I had all sorts of different answers until I reached my late teens, at which point I started saying I just want to "be."

I haven't become what I always wanted to be as a child. Support from family and friends is enough to get a child into becoming what he or she has always wanted to be. Sometimes we choose another direction as we grow up and then our priorities change.

Lucky is the child who became what they wanted to be. Sometimes we make unrealistic promises as kids and that is understandable. But every dream is valid.

I did not become what I wanted to be as a child because what I wanted is to be like power rangers. I was not actually thinking of what would I become as I grow up when I was a child. Even when I reached high school I still do not know what would I like to become that is why I was not so serious in my studies and I was confused in choosing a degree in college. I just chose computer science because I became fascinated in learning computers. What I really want to be just came as I am working already. I wanted to become a blogger/writer. If this aspiration of mine came early in my younger days, I would be probably a good blogger/writer today.

Nope fortunately - particularly as having absolutely no idea of what I wanted to be as a child - most of the things that passed through my mind whenever asked this question were so bizarre and unrealistic that the majority would have been virtually impossible.

I did however become what I chose and wanted to be in my late teens - which not only turned out to be extremely successful for me - but I've enjoyed every minute of it and still do.

Haha, no. Not even close. I remember that for a long time I wanted to be a veterinarian since I absolutely adored animals but then somewhere in my elementary school I completely changed my mind and wanted to become a lawyer because most of my family was/is one. But once I have gotten to high school I got different desires and goals. I didn't want to be either one of those professions - I wanted to be something else and I can reveal that I stuck to it. I graduated and got the diploma in the desired area.

Not yet, because I have to work with Cinema. Although the search for this path is longer than I imagined when I was a child, the dream remains alive and I am still working hard to make it a reality (hope, hope and a little more hope, haha).

As a kid, I remember wanting to be a pilot, an engineer and a banker. Well I have not followed any of those paths so far. I'm still in my early twenites so, I guess there is still a chance I go back to any of my childish ambitions. I'm happy with what I am doing now though so that might not happen anytime soon.

When I was a kid, I enjoyed watching birds. I wish I could fly just like birds. Then one day it came to me that I should become a pilot and fly high. By the time I was a tenth grader, my aim was changed. I wanted to become a doctor. After I passed high school, I wanted to become an economist. When I completed my university education, I began writing for newspapers and decided to become a writer.

I always wanted to be successful, have money a good family. And it seems what I have now is nothing but empty bank account, low earning jobs and no family. And literally nobody. So I guess sometimes we make mistakes. And we end up in more dark in life than anything else. So In that context you can see that not all the dreams come true for many people. We just learn from our experience.

When children says i want to be this or that at the end when we grow up as matured adult we do not really remember again , we go for what we feel that our brain is capable of doing only.

I have always wanted to be an air hostess but unfortunately, i don't have the required height. When I was still a kid, I used to watch the air hostesses in admiration and always wished to become one. I will never be able to achieve this dream of mine. Anyway, I work as a freelancer nowadays and I am quite satisfied with my job.

This is a tough one to answer. When I was in grade school, I had wanted to be a teacher. But when in high school, my dream shifted to being a doctor maybe because my elder sister was taking up nursing in college at the time. And now, I cannot say what my dream was but I am happy with what I am now with a degree in industrial engineering and a nice position in a big bank.

I wanted to be an architect as a child - but that hasn't panned out as later I lost interest. Nonetheless, I like computer 3D art which is sort of similar to architecture. Anyway, most of my passion has drifted toward playing music and web development and the latter is what I spend most of my time on. Oh, by the way, I'm sure at one time being an architect required a drawing ability, but I certainly am terrible at that.

When I was young I wanted to be a cop. After finding out the dire work conditions that cops face in my country I decided to join the army. After finding out how difficult it was to be accepted I decided to become a physical educator. So no I ended up nowhere near where I wanted

I wanted to be a teacher when I was younger (elementary school). Then, in high school, I wanted to be a writer.

I am currently a teacher now.

But honestly, I don't know if this is the right path for me. I don't actually think I'm suited to be a teacher. Maybe childhood dreams should stay dreams...

I think it depends! When I was a child, I wanted to be many things, like soccer player, doctor, lawyer, bank, among others. But in the end I just wanted to work on something that made me happy. Today, in a way I think I have found a job that makes me happy, so in this respect I can say that yes, I work with something that I wanted when I was a child;
Posted by hermessantos on 11-16-2017
No, but I have worked as a writer, and one of my goals as a child was to write and also be a foreign correspondent. However, I am not able to make my living doing this. I think that I might be able to do this in the future though. It is just one of the things that I might look forward to doing in the future, but it seems kind of unlikely at this point. I would love to, but I just don't see how I could as I am very attached to my pets.
