The R&B star has never left her success to chance, and admits she started making her wildest dreams public after a high school video wish became reality.

Ciara tells Shape magazine, "Success begins with self-belief. Once you've got that, then you have to envision what you want to achieve.

"There's a video of me at my high school graduation, and when I was asked where I thought I'd be in a year, I said, 'I see myself having a number one record'. A year later, Goodies was number one and sold five million copies.

"Four years ago, I wrote down that I wanted to be the face of a fashion campaign, and this fall (autumn), I'll be the new face for designer Roberto Cavalli. I truly believe that if you put your goals in writing, speak them out loud, and work for them, they will happen."

It's not known if she dreamed up becoming a mum at 28 or dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, her current beau.
