We all have and have had dreams at one point in our lives. A desire as simple as wanting to be on the baseball team in high school, is a dream. Desiring to go to a particular college is a dream. There are big dreams and small dreams and every dream is a dream. I write this for those whose dreams have died, for someone who didn’t make it into the team, for someone who blew their last chance at an age restricted contest. I write this for someone who dreamt of the promotion and instead got sacked. I write for those whose dreams just somehow don’t apply anymore, can’t apply anymore. In the words of Joel Osteen, I say to you, when one dream dies, dream another dream.
Don’t let the death of one dream kill your life, don’t dwell in depression for the rest of your life. Life is not ended until you breath your last breathe. As long as you’re breathing, you can still fight. You can dream another dream and fight for it once more till you succeed and if you don’t make it again, dream another dream. Don’t let life sap you of itself. Someone said, fear not the end of your life but fear rather that you might not begin to live. Sometimes life is one setback after another but to the man that stands and perseveres through them all, the man that bounces back even higher than a basket ball, to him life eventually salutes by giving him not just his heart desires but gifts he never even imagined.
Don’t dress sloppy and walk around with your shoulders slouched anymore, don’t close your curtains and stay in the gloomy darkness of your house anymore, don’t disconnect from friends and loved ones, fight again. Dream another dream, draw open your curtain, face the sun and inhale that energy, inhale the blessing of enthusiasm that the sun gives, pick up your best cloth, give it a good ironing, admire yourself in the mirror and take your chin up, smile and stride out of your house, out of your hiding place with confidence, ready to fight again.
Remember the poem of the relentless spider, he strived and fell and strived and fell, and strived and fell but eventually he succeeded, he made it to the top. Life isn’t fair, but again who ever said it was meant to be fair? Fight your fight, fight for what you believe in, fight for your dream and a little advice, fight like your life actually depended on it. The world cannot say no to a resilient person, the world cannot say no to a not-quitter, the world cannot say no to you if you give all you’ve got. I’m not talking about giving your best shot, I’m talking about giving all you’ve got. Everything!
I believe you can do it and I look forward to sharing in your success story!
