Sometimes I have these weird moments where a strange thought pops into my mind and I’m like “Woa… that’s crazy…”
This evening I was out for dinner with my wife, eating at this small Fish’n’Chips place near our house that recently opened up, and suddenly this thought popped into my mind…
It was a realization that we were sitting there, and eating at a restaurant that started out as someone’s dream!
I am pretty sure that the lady that served us is the owner or the wife of the owner, so that Fish’n’Chips place was/is their dream…
…and my wife and I were sitting INSIDE their dream, eating the fish and chips that they dreamed up the recipe for and it was delicious.
Then I started thinking that we are SURROUNDED by and living and enjoying not just ours but other people’s dreams as well.
The car we drive in, was someone’s dream! Maybe it was a group of people, but before the car was ever created it had to first be dreamed up.
The computer or mobile device or tablet that you’re on right now, reading this post, was at one point someone’s dream.
When you go to eat at any restaurant, that restaurant started off as a dream and now it is reality.
And when you eat at a restaurant, there’s a chef there that cooks your food, and becoming a chef was their dream at some point as well.
And that chef probably went to culinary school, and they were taught by a culinary school teacher, and that teacher also had a dream… his dream was to teach chefs.
And the school that the teacher taught at, and the chef studied at, well that school was someone’s dream as well!
And the construction crew that built the school is owned by someone who once had a dream to run his own construction company.
Everything around us, was once a dream.
And then SOMEONE made it a reality.
And you know what?
I bet that this someone who made that thing a reality had to face certain obstacles before their dream was realized.
They probably faced doubt, criticism, challenges, struggles and setbacks along the way towards achieving their dream.
But you know what? In the end, they MUST have prevailed and made their dreams come true, otherwise whatever that thing is wouldn’t exist.
How inspiring is that?!
Any time we open our eyes and look around, all around us we can see REALIZED dreams from people who dared to dream, and then made those dreams come true.
So ask yourself this question…
If almost EVERYTHING around us was once someone’s DREAM and then that person or group of people found a way to REALIZE those dreams – making them a reality – then why not you?
If THEY can do it, then you can do it too!
You can do it.
You can make your dreams come true.
