Close enough to touch

The fulfillment of your dream seems distant only because you imagine it to be. Consider that in many ways your most treasured dream is already close enough to touch.

Yes, it’s certainly true that anything of value takes much time and effort to completely reach. Yet it is just as true that you can begin to reach for it at this very moment, if you so choose.

The value of a dream does not reside in the moment of attainment, but rather in the process of attainment. And that process can begin right now.

Whatever your dream may be, the most valuable part of it is the opportunity for you to live with a purpose. That value can be yours as soon as you are ready to live it.

Think of the most magnificent, ambitious, meaningful dream you can imagine for yourself and your world. Just thinking about it begins the process of making it real, and gets the value flowing from that dream into your life.

Your most treasured dream is, today, close enough to touch. Reach out, touch it, and hold on tightly as you make it more and more real with each passing moment.

— Ralph Marston
