“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake up in the day to find it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” ~ T.E. Lawrence
Like many of you, in my childhood I dreamed many dreams. Many of them were extraordinary and seemed impossible. The more my imagination grew, the bigger my dreams grew. As children, we had an amazing ability to look fear in the face and laugh at it. In fact, we dared fear to give us a run for our money. However, somewhere along the journey of dreaming big, LIFE HAPPENED!
When life happens, we don’t dream as big. The gap between the impossible and possible grows wider and wider. For those of you who have stopped dreaming altogether, I have a message for you. “You must dream, because if you don’t, you’ll die.” Not physically, but in every other way, you will cease to exist. Yes, I know to ask you to dream again or to dream big may be a scary proposition. You have dreamed many dreams and after 5, 10, 15 years they haven’t come true. Perhaps you have stopped dreaming because you’ve completely given up hope that your dreams will ever come true. Well today, I would like to offer you one word of hope, “COURAGE.” I pray that today you will summon the courage to dream again. Remember this, as long as you are still alive there is still time to realize your dreams.
I am happy to share with you that I have started dreaming big dreams. The older I get, the more I understand that my life doesn’t belong to me, but to the people whom I’ve been called to serve. Furthermore, most of my dreams involve other people. My dreams continue to serve as insight into my purpose and brings clarity to the vision that God has given me. Hence, I can never stop dreaming and neither can you. For your dreams don’t just benefit you, but they affect the lives of others.
To help you on your journey, I would like to share this powerful 3-minute video called “Dreams Are Whispers From the Soul.” Many of your dreams are related to your purpose; the main reason for your existence. Because of this, your soul will never stop dreaming.
Summon the courage to dream again my friend and ASPIRE TO GREATNESS!
