Get Engaged to Your Dreams
Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam once said: “Dream is not that which you see while sleeping, it is something that does not let you sleep.” When eyes are closed, dreams are mere illusions. They are made of unreal stuff. They are our disguised wish-fulfillment. The dreams which we see with our waking eyes are, in fact, our goal, aim or target. They are our vision. The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty and truth of their dreams. If you have dreams in your eyes and courage in your heart, the sky is the limit for you. Chase your dreams. Go confidently and relentlessly in the direction of your dream. Like Arjuna, you have to hit the eye of the revolving fish. Patience, perseverance and perspiration are the three arrows in the quiver of a veteran archer. So dream big. See lofty dreams. We need dreamers. But we need such dreamers who are also doers. Dreams, if not translated into reality, will be mere castles in the air. Desiring to get the moon is one thing and getting the moon is another thing. Hence, give a strong foundation of hard work to your dream-building. Otherwise it will crumble like a house of cards with the slightest gust of wind. All dreamers are not achievers but all achievers are great dreamers. As you dream, so you become. Memories take us back. Dreams take us forward. Novelist Longston Hughes had this to say: “Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” So, love your dreams, get engaged to your dreams and marry your dreams.
