Dreams

“Last night I woke up with a new goal, tho’ it seems out of the blues, but  I want to realize it…”

“One thing I am sure of is that I can succeed, I can be great and I can go far beyond people’s expectations, although I do not know how and when, where or why. I  have been living my life hoping to become great, but I do not put in any effort. My friends always ask me, “Sam tell us about your future plans, what do you want to become, what do you want to be known for?” Sincerely, then and now as i reflect, I want to become great, but I can’t tell in what area, I can be great in all right? Confusion is my middle name, today, I will say  i want to be a business man, tomorrow  a medical doctor and the next day, I may end up thinking that being a pilot is not bad after all. In my high school days I was nicknamed “jack of all trades”, you will see me different departments and teachers would ask if I wanted to be a master of none, I made up my mind to prove them wrong, but from many confrontations, I decided to read law in college. I am right in the middle of this decision, and I think I am regretting. I want to be great! I want to be great! But great in what? Is it in something I think I do not have a zeal for? Or something I have a passion in, but lacking in skill or ability?”
A friend defined greatness as “achieving dreams beyond measure”, however, is greatness a mere word with no action? The thing is this; if you plant a flower in a vast without watering it and without exposure to sunlight, no matter how good the soil in the vast is, or how good the seedlings are, it will not survive. It needs air, water, sunlight(skill and propelling force for growth). this applies to our dreams and our thirst to become great, we need air, water and sunlight. It is a painstaking process, a conscious step of suffering, training, discipline, and focus that makes one stand out. Clearly define a niche for yourself. Where is your focus? Do not be like Sam, what one wants to be great in, should consume most of the person’s time, energy, mind and all that makes you. 
Think it, do it and be it. For greatness are only dreams that have been manifested.
