    Default realize fulfil a dream?

    Hi, I'd like to know if these sentences are acceptable:

    1- At the end he managed to realize his dreams (his own ones)
    2 At the end he managed to fulfil his dreams (his own ones)
    3 At the end he managed to make his dreams come true (his own ones)

    If they are acceptable, which one is the most used. If they are not acceptable, could you tell me why?

    Thanks Rip

    Default Re: realize fulfil a dream?

    #3 is most clear, followed by #2 (fulfill is spelled with a double l at the end), then #1 (most people think of "realize" as meaning "to become aware of" rather than its other meaning "to make something a reality"
