You have a dream

Ever since the time when you didn’t know any better than to believe it, you have had a dream. Your idea of what your life should be. You’ve always known what you really want to do. You’ve always known your special place in life, your own unique contribution.

On some level you have always known. Perhaps you’ve never confronted it face to face. Or perhaps you have. Your dream makes itself known in everything you do -- in the things you like, the things you don’t like, the people you enjoy, the places you like to visit. Your dream gives lots of hints, every day. It’s too bad that you’ve learned so well how to ignore them.

Listen to your dream. Follow your dream. No, don’t quit your job. No, don’t leave your wife. Those things are not standing in your way -- YOU are standing in your way. Blaming it on others will only delay you that much longer.

Do what you are here to do. Fulfill the possibility that is your life.

— Ralph Marston
