Realistic Dreams


The wish to have or be something, especially one that seems difficult to achieve is an innate desire in every one of us. The quest of all mankind, whether it is admitted or not, is for a life of significance.

For any youth to live a life of significance he or she needs a focus to achieve his or her dreams or goals in life but many who have eyes perish for lack of vision and sometimes we need to be blind before we can truly see. Most young people are dreamers, living tin their dreams and forgetting that a dream is not something that you make up from, but something that wakes you up. Some sleep while they live; others live what they dream.

Someone once said, "Almost the whole world is asleep. Only a handful of people are awake, and they live in a state of constant amazement". Awake people are passionate about living and experiencing life on this planet of wonder - - planet created by an act of wonder. We need awake people to stimulate us and to draw us out of dearness. The best dreams come to pass when you are awake.

Awake people are interesting and sometimes energetic. They are the kind of people you just like to be around. They seem to sense the awesomeness of life and they have a tendency to make it contagious. The reason many people fail is not for lack of vision, but for lack of resolve and resolve is born out of counting the cost.

Leonardo da Vinci who became one of the greatest artists in the world, some claim the greatest, exclaimed: "oh God, you sell us everything for the price of an effort". He was an illegitimate son; brought up by his father's family and thought to be of no account. The made him all the more determined to prove himself by his own efforts; life responded to his demands.

George Bernard Shaw once said, " some men see things as they are, and ask why, but I dream of things that never were and ask why not". Is there a dream you have had, is there a vision in your heart, stay awake and work earnestly to achieving it. The bigger your demand on life, the bigger the response. Life itself sets no limits.

Goethe expressed it in this say:

"Are you in earnest! Seize this very minute:

What you can do, or dream you can, begin it!

Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Only engage and then the mind gets heated:

Begin, and then the work will be completed"
