Do your dream

We often view dreamers as irresponsible, impractical or unrealistic. Yet those dreamers are the ones who so often move us forward. Dreams seem to be unrealistic because they serve to pull us past our current reality into a world that was previously difficult to imagine. Following a dream, with commitment and persistence, transforms what was once unrealistic into undeniable reality.

There is a dreamer in you. There are things which you dream to be possible. Following those dreams means being true to the best that is within you. Bringing those dreams into reality is your own special way of making a positive contribution to the world.

What are your dreams? Do they seem unreasonable? Do they seem out of reach? Do they seem impractical? That just shows how powerful and life-changing they can be. What you can dream, what you can imagine, is possible. What you commit your thoughts and efforts toward achieving, toward creating, toward building, toward becoming, will happen. Dream your best dreams, and let them pull you forward.
