You aren't being paid to believe in the power of your dreams.
Unless your dreams involve making inane small talk with your coworkers, filing reports that will never be read, and sitting through interminable, pointless meanings. Then, I guess, you are being paid for that. Just not well.
Instilling the self-confidence kids will need to carry them through all the failure they'll experience because they weren't taught competence instead.
Because there's nothing standing between you and your goal but a total lack of talent and complete failure of will.
