Make your dreams come true

Achievements come from dreams. The issue we all face at one point or another is disbelief. Sometimes we think our dreams are too far out to achieve, but like R. Kelly sang in the song I believe I can fly, “If I can see it, then I can be it ...if I just believe it, the I can do it”.  It is up to the individual to believe in what they do.

The poem Invictus was written by a man  (Invictus" is a short poem by the English poet William Ernest Henley (1849–1903)) who went through a lot of trials and tribulations. What he illustrates in the poem is that we have a powerful soul. If we believe in this then nothing can stop us.

It is important to have faith in your dreams, no matter how far fetched they may seem, have the courage like the Irish dramatist, essayist and critic, George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) who said these famous words- “Some men see things as they are and say “Why?” I dream things that never were and say   ‘Why not?”

      I like the last part of the last quote. Why not say yes to dreams and believe in them.
