“A man’s dreams are index to his greatness” – Zadouk Rabinwitz
You can’t be walking on this earth not having a thought of the mark you want to leave on it. What do you want to be remembered for? Is it a mark of class or a mark of failure?
As you grow from an early stage, you become more aware of your surroundings and you become attached to certain values, scenery and people around you. You see a leader, or a musician or an actor and then you say to yourself “I want to be like him or her in 10yrs to come”.
Of course nothing is stopping you though, but question is, do you have that vision planned out? Its easier said than done really and it amazes me to find people who wish to be this and that, not showing any desire towards it. Others as well, fall by the way side just after making their first move.
Rome certainly wasn’t built in a day, and you have to realise that for a vision to come to life, it ought to go through various stages. Some of which may take longer than others but its a gradual step, so patience, faith and BELIEF is the only way to go through. Obstacles are just those things that are inevitable and must be conquered in order to pass.
Vision equals to having a purpose and a man without purpose is like a farmer going to farm without tools. Some die @ a young situation having not achieved nothing or even planning to achieve something. Others die during the making of their vision into reality.
Question is, which would you rather prefer? Dying with nothing to be happy about or dying with satisfaction knowing that you @ least made strides to have your vision turn into reality.
Its better to leave this earth leaving an everlasting positive mark that will be carried on to generations. Rather than leaving with just an obituary that bares your name, your age, and no significance.
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete” – Buckminster Fuller
