If the dream brought a piece of good news to your ears, I’m truly happy for you. But then, remember you cannot yield outputs without putting in effort. So, keep striving for a good cause.

And if the dream warns you of a misfortune, instead of giving up, prepare yourself for a tough fight. Honest endeavors can do miracles. Fight as best as you can and leave the rest to destiny. Everything falls in place when the time is right.
