What is your dream? What do you aspire to be? What do you want to achieve the most in life? These are questions we all grew up thinking about as children. Thinking about our dreams excited the imagination and inspired glorious hopes and aspirations. As children, it came naturally to us to imagine who we want to be and what we want to achieve; as kids, it was considered our job to do so and everyone always encouraged us to.
Have a dream! It is in the very fabric of our nature as human beings to chase our dreams.
This was a natural aspect of childhood that, perhaps many of us took for granted. But looking back, it has profoundly impacted who we are today to say the least. Our dreams and aspirations served as the basis of our development through childhood and then adolescence, and they shaped the most important decisions of these formative years in life.
This is the power of our dreams and aspirations. Our dreams were the starting point and driving force of all the efforts and accomplishments that make us who we are today, that make our lives, our societies, and our country what they are today.
If our dreams and aspirations of the first several decades of life are the reasons we are who we are today, imagine how the dreams and aspirations we hold this very moment are shaping our future as we speak. They will become the roadmap for the accomplishments and successes we will achieve in ten, twenty, and thirty years down the road. This means that whether we are young, middle-aged, or in our twilight years, the time we spend thinking about our dreams and acting on them will have a tremendous impact on our happiness, success, and the future of this world. Our future cannot grow better or achieve bigger things than its original design.
So, what is your dream today? What do you want to do for your family, the community, the country, and the world to make them great again?
