    Help please!!!!!!

    Does anyone know a word for "live up"?
    Like when you say, he didn't live up to his dream?
    Does anyone know a fancy word for it?

    No fancy word as such. "Failed to match/meet expectation" would be a formal phrase.

    I suggest fulfill for "live up to".

    fulfill (verb) put into effect, execute; to measure up to, satisfy; to convert into reality
