1. “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

Life has you believe that if you listen to your parents, have good grades in school, and graduate from college your future is ensured. While we spend most of our time abiding to the rules, we begin to forget what it meant to dream. The bygone time when we dreamed of becoming an astronaut, an explorer, a scientist, and an artist. Most dreamers die due to the pressure of social norms and burden of economic production. Being a dreamer is not easy, you’ll most likely face hardships, have to forgo meals, and constantly worry about next month’s rent. But fulfilling that dream is worth all the hardships. If you have the courage to take the risk and follow your dreams.

2. “The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

For the longest time I was a “Wantrepreneur”. Someone who wanted to build a startup, but doesn’t actually take the leap. I would spend hours drawing wire-frames and preaching novels web-app concept, while not actually creating a single product. It’s better to simply start. Start creating a shitty product and learn from doing. The unknown is also terrifying and meaningless procrastination always seems like the safe bet. But procrastination is just a Sisyphean stroll inside your own closet.

3. “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.”

There’s a certain thrill that comes from beating an impossible level in a game when you were little. And it gets more interesting when you build reusable rockets when everyone disagreed with you (SpaceX). It also fun to prove investors wrong when you generate traction for a service that lets you sleep in other people’s houses (AirBnb). When you’re trying to achieve the impossible you eventually just mute out all the naysayers. Despite all the negative comments one may encounter, all you have to do is provide evidence in the contrary. It’s fun to do the impossible.

4. “If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started by a mouse.”

It’s hard to imagine nowadays that Groupon started off as a single blog post. That AirBnb started by renting off a single airbed in their apartment. And Instagram simply started off as a photo filter app. “Big things have small beginnings” — Lawrence of Arabia. You don’t have to have a grand plan to start the next unicorn startup, you just need to start with a small MVP to validate your hypothesis, then scale from there. After all Disney started from a single cartoon of a mouse.

5. “That’s the real trouble with the world. Too many people grow up.”

I remember wanting to grow up quickly so I can experience being an adult. Have the freedom of buying what I want, going to my favorite amusement park, and playing with toys all day. Sadly, none of those activities interest me much anymore. When we grow we lose that burning passion of wanting and playing with our simple surroundings. I used to be able to spend hours with a simple Lego block. Hours filled with imaginations are now just items in a garage. While growing up has its benefits we mustn’t forget the simple ideas and dreams we had when we were younger.
