When we aim for the stars; we bury our scars. When we chart our course, we thrive in an uncharted world. When we plot our path, we leave a trail. When we become responsible for our lives, life will be responsive towards us. When we are committed to our dreams, life will be commissioned to deliver to us. When we are dedicated, life becomes committed. When we permit faith to rule us; fate will be ruled out. When you don’t have a plan for your life; life becomes plain. Therefore, you can never experience the future that you have not created. And you cannot create the future if you don’t have a blueprint of it. Having a blueprint of your future is only possible when you have a mental picture of what you want. With the mental picture of your future in place, you utilize the capacity to dream. And dreams serve as the conveyor from the present to the future. Therefore, the path to a rewarding life begins with a compelling dream alongside consistent effort in accomplishing it.
Everything in this lofty universe began as a dream. Dreams is the license our Creator has given to us to refine our world. Everything was created by God on this planet and put in place in its raw state and entrusted to us in order for us to use our imaginative genius to make discoveries and utilize these raw materials to re-shape the world. For centuries down in history, mankind has made tremendous progress that is mind boggling. Yes! Mankind has made tremendous progress by those who dared to dream backed up with a backbone that knows no defeat. Every creation of man first existed as dream; an idea, in the mind of someone. We can safely say the real world is actually in your mind because it births or bring to reality your physical or material world. Without the internal world (mind, imagination) there cannot be an external world (physical or experiential world). Therefore, your external world is a reflection of your internal world because you are always thinking and imagining which means you are always creating. But the question is; what are we creating? Are we utilizing our memories rather than our imagination? Are we creating a compelling future or a devastating one? Are we using our mind to serve us or do we use it to limit us? In the realm of thoughts and imagination there are no limitations. The only limitations that exist are in the lack of your ability to perceive and mentally conceive and act on your dream. Therefore, anything is possible.
Scientists had speculated that it was impossible for a metal to fly in the sky. But there lived two men who were “mere” bicycle repairers with a difference. They were bicycle repairers but their vision was not confined to their bicycle shop. They had a dream of inventing the airplane. Your dream must be larger than you so that you could grow into it. No dream ever accomplished leaves you the same. In fact, true success does not so much lie in what you’ve achieved but what you become in the process of accomplishing your dreams. These men disregarded the idea of “impossibility”. The world is full of idea killers and dream crushers; people who will talk you out of your dreams; people who see your weaknesses rather than your strengths; people who see your inabilities rather than your potentials; people who judge you by your background rather than your aspirations; people who judge you by what you are rather than what you could be. It may even be the people closest to you that will dissuade you from pursuing your dreams because of their negative mindset or ignorance. Therefore, you must guard your dream by sharing it with those who have the capacity to believe it and help you accomplish it. Hence, you have the responsibility of believing in yourself, your abilities and your dream. Through hard work, persistence and their imaginative ability they succeeded in inventing the airplane. Every dream comes with a price; the greater the price, the greater the dream.
You can’t create a great future without sacrificing the pleasures of the present for the gains of the future. Every great dream is accomplished through hard work intelligently directed; it will employ your time, energy, financial and mental resources. You may think that people were impressed by the invention but the contrary was the case. When Wilbur and Orville Wright announced the flight of a practical machine, newspaper men refused to witness a demonstration of the machine. When you want to make a mark, you will attract erasers. People who are not living out their purpose or who are going nowhere will want to pull you down to their level. Therefore, refuse to be distracted. Be focused and you will lay hold on the prize. The Wright Brothers had created a magnificent future for mankind by changing the course of destiny through a compelling dream.
Utilizing the power of dreams to create the future is simple but not easy because life will test your commitment before handing over to you its vault of valuables. Life may knock you down but if you can look up, you can get up. Remember, life can only knock you down but it cannot knock you out. You are the only person that can knock yourself out. And when you are knocked out, you become a spectator in the game of life; and spectators don’t win prizes. Hence, there is a need to learn from defeat and adopt strategy that works in accomplishing your dreams. Persistency is the key that unlocks the door of seasons and time.
You can be more, do more and have more by expanding your horizon through the creative power of dreams.
