I don’t know why I always dream about little things. I consider big dreams just as fantasies. I don’t understand that everything I admire was done by human beings who were identical to me. What is the problem if I dream this article being read all over the world? I think I can’t because I am confined in my small dreams.
It’s only if our shoes could fit our feet we feel comfortable. The size of our feet controls the shoes’ size. However this fact becomes opposite when it comes to the concept of ‘dream’. It’s not our brain that controls our dreams. Rather the dream controls the brain size. We can enlarge our brain just by promoting our dreams.
Athlete Zeresenai Tadesse, after shining with in the country, went overseas in search of his endless dreams. He contested with those who were ‘aliens’ to him while he was running locally. But he proved he was not a lay man, or the ‘aliens’ were just human beings. Now if we ask Zeresenay to go to Mars for a ‘universal’ contest, he will pick up his bag and depart because from now on nothing is impossible to him.
Many of us are very stingy when we come to dreaming. The special ones say ‘the sky is my limit’ and on the contrary we limit our dreams just around our heads. Let’s ask ourselves; “what’s my dream?” If we say “your dream should be like this”, we are putting a roof on your mind. And a dream does not need a roof. It requires an open air. There are limits to what we see and hear. But limitless is what we can dream. We are utmost independent in putting our dreams in endless height.
If our dream is limited to our home and is restricted by the roof, our actions will be very routine. As a result, our future will be ambiguous. We can make the world our home, and we can make our home our world too. It just depends upon our perception. If our ultimate goal is having fashionable sofas, brand new TV, shining furniture and so on, it is our choice not to enjoy the resources beyond our home. And after we passed away, we would be called, “he/ she was living in the house not in the world”
It is advisable for everyone to have dreams. But it’s a must for the youth. Being a youth is identical to being capable of doing anything. If you are a youth and you have a ‘problem’, you don’t have a problem because a door can’t be permanently closed while a key is in the keyhole. And being a youth is being a key to any problem.
Being part of this invaluable life stage, our dream should be bigger and longer than us. We should not put our dreams in the soils because it could be destroyed very easily. So we need to put them in the skies where we always look forward to them. We should fly towards our dreams.
It’s not the amazing driver who should be considered as an extra-ordinary human being rather it is the car inventor who is the special one. Who can argue over the Wright brothers are smarter than the class-A pilots. So it’s not bad if we can make the best thing our ‘reference’ and beyond the best our ‘dreams’. There are many trash things that retard us from composing great dreams. Many shining stuff enter our minds. And without our consent they shape our life. It’s not the life we are living we should admire. We were born to be beyond what we are today.
It’s very comfortable and easy to dream being in today’s world. Ferdinand Magellan and his contemporaries, after touring all over the world using ship, became popular. If we see this adventure through today’s point of view, it is not that much interesting because discovering the already available things does not make you unique. Today’s scientists are discovering the ‘unthinkable’ issues. Visiting the Moon is no more a breaking news. You can visit the moon and the space. The very thing you need to have is just the cash.
To wrap up our discussion, we are saying our capacity to change our lives is beyond our imagination. No one is cursed for not achieving his dreams and no one is blessed to fulfill his ambitions. It all depends on what we are performing today. And the good news is that nothing can stand in front of our dreams and no one can manipulate our visions without our permission.
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.” said Steve jobs, the great IT scientist. As he said he is no more alive. But his findings and contributions are and will be alive forever.
