The late Olympian, Jesse Owens quoted;
“We all have dreams. But in order to turn dreams into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.”
Dreaming alone is simply not enough. Action is most certainly required in order for us to see our dreams turn into reality. What we do today contributes to our life tomorrow. What we say today contributes to our life tomorrow.
I would like to think we all have dreams (or goals if you prefer), big dreams, the kind that scare us if we give them too much thought.
Dreams are supposed to be big and out of this world. If we could pluck them out of the clouds this would then make them easily attainable.
Our dreams ensure we continue to plough forward, despite the challenges. They are what we reach out to even when they feel a million miles away. Take the stars in the sky; billions of miles away yet when we stand in the dark of night, we look up and feel we could somehow grab at them.
Dreams give us hope that those things we desire; however big or small will someday be ours. Though our dreams may seem far off, the small steps we take today mean we grow closer each day.
One man’s dream may well appear ordinary to another man but it is valid and relevant to them.
I would like to own a horse at some point in my life. To me they are the most beautiful animals on this earth. Surprisingly I am not too hot on cleaning out the stables but would happily ride the horse on a daily basis. Now, to own a horse on your own grounds you need ample land which there is not much of here in the UK as compared to say, America. I would not say no to land, my family and I could run a farm – no pigs allowed!
Do you have defined dreams or goals?
