Achieve your dreams
Someone once said, ‘the poorest man on earth is not the man without money, but the man without a dream.’ This implies that the totality of a man’s life is rooted in dreams.
I have never seen a successful man without a dream; in fact, for plans to come to being it must first be conceived as a dream. Bringing one’s dream to fruition is one of the most powerful things anyone can do to be successful in life. However, we need to understand that in life there are designs and protocols that cannot be broken or substituted; for instance, food has no substitute in our lives. Why?
It is because we need food for energy to do work and growth.
Also, having dream is vital in making the most of our adventure in life. Have you ever wondered why each time success is discussed some names such as Michael Dell, Bill Gate, Martin Luther King, Thomas Edison, Aliko Dangote, Barrack Obama and others come to our minds?
We need to understand that all these men at one point in their lives had dreams, which they put into plans. Greatness is never achieved in a day; it first starts in the mind like a dream, before the carrier puts it into plans. Dream is the starting point of success. It is the beginning of any creation. Life without a dream is doomed. Where there is no dream, there is no hope. Without a dream, one’s future is uncertain.
When then is dream? It can be described as the mental picture of a desired future. I believe there are two worlds: the physical world we can see and relate with, and the world that exists in the mind (conceived world). Concrete items existed first in conceived world before birthed in form of invention or otherwise. Everything that exists today was created twice. First in the mind and then processed into real or seen world.
Dream is, therefore, the currency and potency of hope. Our dreams are much more important than our present circumstances, because they enable us have ideas about the future.
