Be a dreamer of the day. 7.30.11, 9.28.12 & 4.4.13

"All men dream: but not all equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom

All men dream…all men have visions of a preferred future. I used to think that a great idea or big dream was something special, something unique. Deceived into thinking that I actually had something and that somehow the presence of the idea or dream made it real or closer to becoming a reality. I have observed over time that what I thought was unique and rare was infact more common than the air we breathe. For all men dream and have ideas, but it’s the ability to convert into them strategic action that is the rare jewel. For dreaming costs a man nothing…there is no risk, no failure. Acting on them requires effort, courage, risk, persistence, trust, etc…it is those character traits that are rare, dreams and ideas are of endless supply. Action. My sons, push your level of thinking always…dream big and envision that preferred future in all areas of life, but don’t be deceived into thinking it is a reality yet, for you have only identified the direction…now you must go to work. It will be there in the consistent daily execution that your dreams and ideas will be won or lost.
