#180. When dreams become inevitable.
“So many of our dreams at first seem impossible. Then they seem improbable. And then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.”
We all have dreams. Most of our dreams die. They are neglected. They are pushed to the side. They seem impossible, and are way too daunting too even start. There’s one thing that happens with the progression of our lives. If we keep doing it, our dreams don’t just become possible, they become inevitable.
Don’t be afraid to work
Your dream, however hard or small, should be worked on. If you let your dream sit in the cosmos, it will shrivel and die. But, if you aren’t afraid of the work, you aren’t afraid of the grind, your dreams will stop seeming so large and far away.
When many people see the daunting task they have before them, they get discouraged. They think they’ve aimed to high. They think they aren’t good enough. Don’t be afraid to aim high, and never be discouraged. There’s only one thing that will make your dreams look smaller and more achievable. It’s work.
Nelson Mandela didn’t get discouraged. His dreams were huge. He didn’t just want to invent a silly device or get rich. He wanted to change the world. His dream was to change the heart of a nation. There are very few dreams smaller than his. Work continuously and consistently until your dreams are no longer impossible. Work harder until they become improbably. Work even harder until they become inevitable.
