I was recently called a dreamer by a very special friend. “We are dreamers,” he said.
You can tell a dreamer because they have a simple formula for their success: impossible outcomes + difficult odds -doubt= success. It is tempting to find yourself thinking of a brighter day filled with better circumstances that include much simpler goals. However, when you find yourself doing the bare minimum rather than a challenge, that often leads to a state of mediocrity. If we could achieve success using our own power there would not be a reason to dream.
Dreamers are actually made as a result of their difficult circumstances and insurmountable odds. They are sculpted into powerful vessels of hope despite the challenges they encounter. Using a winning mindset, a true “dreamer” can sustain those implanted ideas and visions placed upon them by God for just the right amount of time; then they must act on them. Through hard work, dedication and planning we can accomplish our dreams one step at a time. Dreaming is divine in nature because there could be no other explanation for the premonitions and visions that we have in our youth.
If you ask the dreamers you know, the ones that have been able to accomplish at least a fraction of their dream, they will most likely tell you that to others their dreams appeared impossible. If you ask the queen from Alice and Wonderland she would tell you that the key is to BELIEVE in those dreams that you are dreaming.
“There is no use in trying,” said Alice, “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
“When I was your age I did it for half an hour each day.”
“Why sometimes, I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast..”
Alice and Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
