Men were created to dream. We are made to survive, to pursue, to live, and to thrive. Otherwise, we are just a piece of meat moving like water flowing in the river.
We, as humans, possess what animals don’t.
It is our imagination.
It is our innate desire to follow the gut residing in our hearts.
It is our ability to dream.
Natural it is for human beings to have a vision of what we truly want to achieve. The truth is, there’s no one, ever, here in physical earth have lived without a dream.
The real matter is, how bad do you want it?
Because you may notice, the dream is free, but the work? It is sold separately. It is the work that truly makes a difference.
It’s not about a dream alone, but a combination of desire and hard work.
They need each other. And they compliment each other.
How strong is that desire in your heart? How bad do you want your dream to become a reality?
When you are pounded by constant adversities,
When you are presented with seemingly-insurmountable challenges,
When you are failing at your job, or in life itself,
When you are being hammered by continuous disappointments, rejections, and frustrations,
When you are losing everything,
Is the time your desire, belief, and courage are tested.
Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot gly. – Langston Hughes
Taste your dream even it is bitter.
Of course, it’s tough. Because it’s worth it.
It will beat you to your knees, even keep you there permanently. It will make you hit the rock bottom.
But do not be frightened. Do not be afraid. Hold your dream the same way a mother loves her child. Behold as the rhythm sets in.
You hold your dream by loving the slow process. You focus on it every single day of your life. You make it a priority like you have no option, like you have no choice, like it’s do or die.
The truth is, a dream craves sweat, blood, and tears. It requires patience, perseverance, and courage.
A patience to trust the process. A perseverance to push when things are back-breaking. And a courage to believe yourself when no one else do.
How about you? What is your dream? How bad do you want it?
