GAVIN OATTES I WAS JUST THINKING.

I believe too many people are giving up too soon on their dreams.

How long are you meant to give it? We're all different, I auppose, but with the right mind-set, attitude and work ethic, it's amazing how much we can accomplish.

Aged 15, I used to dream of doing stand-up comedy and having my own night at Glasgow's Stand Comedy Club.

I started performing at 18 and finally, at 34, I've been given a monthly residency at The Stand.

I don't write this to be arrogant but to help anyone considering giving up on their ambitions. Dreams do come true. ? Follow Gavin on Twitter @gavinoattes
