Dreaming of a ladder symbolizes you have the ability to climb above any problems in your life. Take note of the length of the ladder to gauge how long the current problems will last. If you dream you are falling from a ladder you will be unsuccessful in your present endeavors. If someone raises and holds a ladder for you this denotes that you will climb to great heights in your chosen profession. A broken ladder denotes failure in all your undertakings and you see yourself escape down a ladder means you will win out only after some careful planning.
