In your dreams you will discover how you respond to all kinds of situations. Dreams seem designed to clearly bring out who you are, much clearer than your life during the day. You may decide that some things are fine as they are, but that some of your other automatic responses do not please you. By paying attention to your dreams, you can change your patterns.
Not only will you increase your options by discovering your options, you will also discover other interests and talents in your dreams, that you somehow never use that much during the day. And some of these things may actually be nice to do something with while you're awake.
