“A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities.”
– J.R.R. Tolkien
Have you ever had a dream? No.. not those narratives fabricated by our imaginations when we’re asleep, often fictitious. They seldom have any real meaning and even if so, they often are too offbeat to decode.
I am talking about the dreams that don’t let you rest at nights. Those desirous visions that spark your head so bright that you can’t identify yourself without them. Your every step becomes an inspired action towards one particular focus. It can be anything, from a six digit income to an impacting business empire, from a desired body structure to a certain someone that completes your story, or whatever. It has got to be the driving force for you.
People might not understand you and, in fact, why should they? It is something that has costed you your days, not them. They might be your best friends, your family. But they don’t have your eyes. They don’t see in you who you meet everyday in the mirror, yet. So the question you’re left with is, what’s stopping you? Why aren’t you doing it?
You don’t have to care about others or what if they don’t understand. This is your dream, your life. You’d have to shape it. You alone would have to realize it. You can’t depend on anyone to realize the beauty of your vision as they’re not the ones envisioning it. It’s you. Just you. They’ve different things.. different people.. different priorities in their lives. But what else do you have? Can you afford to lose on this thing, your passion?
If this is the sole purpose of your being, you have to do it anyhow. Make it click for you. Not to show them, but to yourself that you deserve it.
Patience. Persistence. Perseverance.
