I was recently walking down the hallway at school , when I saw a poster that said,
+ Hard Work
I immediately began to think about, if I’ve ever had success without a dream…
Later that evening, I heard a radio personality say that,”Dreams don’t have to stop when you get out of bed.” Seeing that poster and hearing the radio personality talk about dreaming, really made me realize something. Without a dream, we aren’t working towards anything. Let’s look at back at some of your accomplishments from 2013:
- You married that beautiful/handsome spouse of yours… Well, that was your dream, right?
- You received that promotion at work… Well, didn’t you dream about that one day?
- And that new Rolls Royce you bought… I’m sure you dreamed about that, right? Or maybe you’re still dreaming!
Every piece of success, that we have ever had, is thanks to a dream we’ve had. When you dream, you’re preparing your mind to achieve a goal. Think of your brain as a GPS. You have to enter the destination, YOUR DREAM, so it can begin to calculate a path, YOUR PLAN, to getting there. What happens if you don’t have a destination in your GPS? It simply shows where you are, at the moment, not where you’re going. It’s not giving you directions to go anywhere, right?
What if Dr. Martin Lr. King Jr., didn’t have a dream for equality in our nation? His GPS didn’t just say, Currently living with DISCRIMINATION
it said, currently living with DISCRIMINATION, going towards EQUALITY.
After reading this, I want for you to go Dream and set the Destination for your GPS. I hope to see your GPS calculating the route for your success soon Remember that there is no destination without a dream… Your DREAM, is your DESTINATION.
