We bleed passions; we dream; we strive for greatness. Yet, of course, the question remains, “how?”. I live for my ambitions, but not knowing the answer troubles me. I step in the right direction, putting my faith in God that everything transpires better than imagined. Envisioning, however, is half the battle. If the ambitions are truly passionate, long days, long weeks, and long years shall not dismay you. Eliminate old habits and sacrifice the person you are, for the blissful, successful person you’ll become. Nonetheless, if it proved easy there would be no pride–there would be no accomplishment. For now, until reaching the dream, you must BE PHENOMENAL. In every endeavor, in every piece of work, in everything you do— put forth the most absolute effort, inline with your vision, and remember the dreams you conceive and what you strive to accomplish. With the utmost dedication, the occasional gratification, and the discipline to continuously reach for a profound future, you will accomplish your wildest dreams and bask in the glory, riches, and pride that accompany it.
To display affection for MLK day, I thought to expand upon dreams– not the dreams of night, but the ones of influence that inspire your decisions, choices, and actions every waking moment.
Dreams vary in accordance to wants, needs, and interests. Some dream of a new home, while some dream of overcoming poverty; some dream of touching the lives of millions, while some dream of a future with one other soul. Whatever the dream, the innate fact that we all dream is the connection we share. Not only entitled, we are deserving of a dream. We strive for the better things in our lives, our communities, and our world. The journey to fulfillment sometimes falters by speed bumps and distractions, enticing failure when reaching for completion, but nonetheless, we share the common journey of pursuing a dream. Here for a purpose decided upon by you, we realize we dream together. Every one fights a battle; every one chases a dream.
I dream of leaving an impact in some beneficial, elusive way for everyone. What will I do for them? Not sure. How will I do it? Haven’t figured it out. But I dream to make it happen, and I promise I’ll provide the steadfast dedication to realize it.
