What is that dream that is stirring you up in the inside and causing you to be restless? What mental picture do you have in your mind about your future and what is keeping you from acting on it? What is slowing you down from moving towards your goals? Please time waits for no one! You must find the means to act on your dreams today before it becomes too late for you to do something about it. Don’t wait for the right time for it will never come by. Start now and with what you have, and be ready to go through what it takes to arrive your finally destination.
You have to understand that every great achiever who walks the earth had dreams they acted upon to become what they became. Great people attempt impossible dreams and achieve them in spite of the fear of the unknown. Success is a product of confronting and acting on your dreams in spite of your fears. Just like Praise George said. “Successful people are not people who eliminated all their fears; rather they are people who have learnt to act in spite of their fears.” Added by Will Smith, “Fear is not real; the only place it exists is in our thoughts of the future.” According to him, fear is just a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not actually exist in the present or may never exist in the future.
However, do not misunderstand me, danger is real, but fear is a choice. Fear is self-impose by you and behind every fear is the person you really want to become. Face your fears today and you will become the person you truly want to be. Fear has killed many dreams and shattered many lives. Someone once said, Fear has two meaning: Forget Everything and Run or Face Everything And Rise” It causes you to backpedal and stay where you are.
It is time for you to step out there and face your dreams. Now is the time, not later. Refuse to settle for crumbs, and take gainful steps today that will put a smile on your face forever. Forget about your background, level of education, your current financial situation and all that troubles you and make your dream a reality. The troubles you face are only to strengthen you and not to kill you. Eric Tangumonkem once said in his book titled Coming to America, “When trouble show up, shout joy, for they are indication that deliverance is around the corner.” he added that “Opposite always attracts and problem will definitely attract solution.” Just follow this guide and you will have a reason to celebrate tomorrow.
You are part of a chosen generation that will create the modern businesses to change the face of the world, don’t hold back on your part to fulfil your life purpose. There are people out there waiting for you to launch that burning business idea so that they can come in to partner with you, and others are waiting to seek for employment opportunities; don’t deny them the opportunity to benefit from your dreams. It’s time; don’t wait anymore because you don’t longer have time on your side. You must act now to better your future, those of others and that of your country.
