"We shall get so few opportunities in our lives to make a significant impact on the world in which we live. So when such opportunity arises, we should be ready to abandon all doubt,'reach for the sky' and 'fly with it,' for the chance to truly shine may come but once. Those who dare to dream their dream do and those who don't are destined to remain in dark obscurity.
I have always thought that the best way to make your dreams come true is to wake up to all of the possibilities that this big world offers us. The world is vast enough to handle anything we dream and is capable of passing each of us our unopened parcel of possibilities.
My mother used to tell me that dreams are the touchstones of our character, or to use her words, 'Billy, dreams will make you what you are and not what you do, that is why it's important to go to sleep every night with a clear conscience, so you can dream your dream.'
Just imagine what one might dare to dream if one knew one wouldn't fail? I do truly believe that the future you see is the future you get. I've always believed that we miss out when we don't pursue our dreams.
I will end with a quotation by the writer John Updike who said, 'Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.'" William Forde: April 8th, 2017.
