Always Have a Dream By Bernard Levine

Follow your heart

to the path of greatness

that lies within you.

The secret of life

is to have something

to look forward to


Find a dream that excites you

and make plans

of how you are going

to achieve it.

Feed your mind daily

with positive energy

and words of inspiration.

Take your life to a higher level.

Stay focused and go forward

with your eyes on the prize.

When you run towards your destination

with passion in your heart

you will see your dreams come true.

Be true to yourself - become who you want to be.

Follow your heart

to the path of greatness that lies within you.

Focus your time and energy on your daily priorities.

Put God's Word first and there will be

wonderful victories ahead.

Find a way to serve others and you will be fulfilled.

Thank God for all His blessings you are receiving today.

Look for ways to create happiness for yourself

and for your loved ones.

Protect your heart with all diligence,

for out of it flow the issues of life.

Make God your first choice when you call for help.

Dream big dreams.

As there are many choices to make in life, one choice is to go for happiness that springs from the inspiration that life is beautiful amidst ugly faces, another is to go for excellence that passes crudeness to refinement. And as I always believe, excellence is getting better every way, every day in my life.
