In the DreamDay people have dreams about children,world,country,education,youth. Seriously? What happened to the dreams like “I have a dream that I will do something to make this happen.” Everybody dreams about great abstract stuff and thinks somehow all the dream will come true. Great world, great country, oneness, excellent education, Safe nation etc.
Isn’t our dream supposed to be something we are working towards, shouldn’t it reflect our own action? Mitt Romney dreams “what made America great will make our kids great.” As a senior leader I would hope he will have a better dream. It’s like some magic will make everything great and we don’t have to do a thing for that.
What happened to the small dreams, like I dream of white picket fence house, fastest car, exotic travel, more money, happy family? How come in the news media all the dreams are “so big” and related to the world only.
I don’t think having smaller dream about yourself is any lesser than the big dreams. Martin Luthar King, had dreams and he had actions to achieve his dream. For achieving anything great there has to be baby steps taken to that rough road where lots of obstacles will be in our way.
People who dreams of a united world, may be need to have a small dream like “I will marry internationally”.
People who dreams about education may be should dream ” I want to teach group of student voluntarily”.
People who dream about “Safe world” may be should dream of “I want to spend 10 hours a week to educate younger generations the moral values.”
I don’t think it’s hard to stick to a small dream, because it is measurable and achievable. Big dreams should be there to keep us motivated but the small dreams should lead us there. Otherwise Dreams will be always Dreams.
My dream is to make the big dreams come true by taking positive actions. Oh and I have another dream. This is more abstract. My dream is that one day all the phony people will be real and true to themselves and actually speak up what’s in their mind, not what sounds right.
