Go On and Do That
Ever watch someone building a dream? Ever wonder about building a dream and catch yourself thinking, I wish I was meant to do that?
Why would some people get to have their dreams and other people have to go without?
It can’t be luck. It can’t be money. It sure can’t be smarts. Look around. Those things don’t decide who gets what.
How would a universe choose which stars get to shine and which don’t?
Is it that some people know their dreams? Deep in our hearts, don’t we all? We did when we small enough to still dream big, giant dreams. It’s in ourselves. It’s in our hearts. We know.
Ourselves. What’s so scary about going after a dream? Is it the self in ourselves? Is that the question, the word, that stops us from being who we are? We can’t be ourselves because of our self?
Self-directed doesn’t mean self-serving. Self-determined isn’t self-absorbed. It isn’t selfish or self-centered to be who we are.
Truth is, we give our self to a dream.
What’s the difference between the person who changes a dream into reality and the person who looks on?
One changes the world.
We can change the world — just like that.
