Your life consists of layers. In the end of the day, of every day, you will see that in a way you have achieved nothing and in another way very much of everything you have been dreaming of. Just make sure you keep being an unchangeable personaity. "Dreams are the only reality", said Wittgenstein. As long as you have dreams you are alive.
"Sueños son la realidad única", ha dicho Wittgenstein.
