DREAMS RELOADED 2
Yesterday, I talked about work being the fulcrum of our dreams. However, what I did not mention was that we must never work with the similitude of lemmings. Our work must have direction, must be focused!
Joseph gave us a peek into this situation in his dream when he said, “we were all out in the field gathering bundles of wheat.”
The bloke did not see himself dressmaking, fetching water or leading sheep which was the first job we saw him doing before his brothers sold him into slavery.
Joseph was specific in his dream. He was putting sheaves together. He was providing solution to a food problem. He was producing value in the food industry.
This opened my eyes to the fact that our dreams should be focused on problem solving and creating value for a particular niche of life. It is not a surprise that in the future, we later saw him solving a global food issue. Like a GPS system, the problem solving dream traversed time and space and guided him like a heat seeking missile smack-dab into the middle of a global food crisis where he was the only one with the wherewithal to resolve the conundrum.
Working on our dreams around the clock alone won’t cut it. Our dreams must be purposeful and precise with a problem solving mission. Working hard with that in mind is what will guarantee hitting the mother-lode no matter how long it takes.
So question for us is what industry of life are we dreaming of? What problems are we dreaming and thinking of solving in that industry? All our work has to be geared towards something in the pursuit of our dreams. The greatest dreamers were those who had adding value in mind and value came back to them. They were like bees producing honey in particular areas of life e.g Henry Ford, Steve Jobs, Mel Gibson, Muhammed Ali, Sam Adeyemi, etc. The list is endless and with the passage of the sands of time, more names that we are quite familiar with will be added to the distinguished roll call.
Joseph again reminded me of God. God had a dream for humanity and worked towards it by sending his Son. This was written about the Heir he sent, “For this PURPOSE the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.”
