Can dreams get too big for reality? I don‘t think so, but preparation can get too small for the dream!

Such is the case of a broken life that goes from dream to dream without ever facing the reality of preparation; kind of like the sports team that keeps dreaming the dream, but never quite prepares enough to make it happen.

Sometimes the dream is so out of focus, that the clari cation of it never quite gets recognized. Such is the case of having all the talent and ability in the world, but never enough fortitude or will to take it to the next level.

For fear of rejection or humiliation, most dreams seem to stall out at the mere suggestion of something going wrong. He who isn’t thick-skinned enough to quall the insecurities that are humanly innate to our very being will crumble under his own weight.

If you see yourself in any of this, it is important to understand that anyone can rise above the roadblocks that stand in your way. These are nothing more than excuses for not taking that leap of faith.

“If I just had his or her ________, I too could be at the top of my game…”

Fill in the blank and see if the shoe ts. If it does, wear it all the way to an upgraded self-esteem and inner strength strong enough to propel you to new highs. High enough to make you want to clean house, start over and begin preparing for a new and brighter future.

Like an old sow in mud, it is so much easier to wallow around in self-pity and play the blame game than it is to take responsibility for your own actions. There is an old quote that reads, “If a man can’t reach higher than that for which he can see, his goals may never be attained.”

Where is your reality? If it is yet to be de ned, may you be described as an individual of unblemished principals and an unbroken faith that can’t be shattered before at least attempting that dream that de nes who you are.

Every person has a dream. It is a part of reality that has to be faced before we become whole!

Success will come to those who dream big and prepares even bigger.
