I am currently
reading a book by my friend, Beau Henderson, the Rich Life, Ten Investments for True Wealth. On page 119 toward
the bottom of the page he wrote, “There is nothing more tragic than a dreamer
who does nothing and nothing more powerful than a dreamer who takes action.”
WOW! What an
incredible statement. The graveyard remains full of people who died with the
dream still in them. How many musicians or singers have died with the music
still inside of them? How many inventors kept their invention only in their
mind? How many artists hid their paintings? How many authors have buried a
best-selling book inside of them? How many motivational speakers have died with
their speeches still inside them?
people want to wait until everything in their life is perfect before they
pursue their dreams. I have heard people say, “When I have enough money, I will
take that dream vacation.” Although, I do not agree with living above your
means, most people if they will be disciplined can save enough money in a short
period of time to take that dream vacation.
My wife and
I had a dream to take an Alaskan Cruise. We didn’t think it was possible
without going thousands of dollars in debt but I told her, “Let’s save for a
period of two years and we can pay for that vacation.” Not only did we take a
seven day cruise, we flew into Fairbanks. We spent one entire day on a train
going through Denali. We saw wonderful scenery that we had previously viewed in
a book. We enjoyed a ten day vacation which was the longest vacation we had
life end in tragedy because you have a dream but do nothing to fulfill it or
will your life be powerful because you take steps to make your dream a reality?
You have the choice today. What will you do? Will you keep dreaming without any
action? Will you keep coming up with reasons why your dream can’t come to fruition?
Tragedy or Power?
