Today's quotation:

The world needs people like you to dream of something
great and then pursue it with all your heart.

Chris Widener

Today's Meditation:

So what will happen if you do this?  And why does the world "need" you to do it?  Quite simply, the world needs us to pursue things with passion because positive energy, the energy that comes from living with passion, is necessary for all of us to experience.  And only when you do this will you contribute something truly unique to you as an individual to the world.  And only when you do this will you be able to serve as a role model for other people who long to see someone who's going after their dreams and living a special life.

Things may be hard--they often are when we pursue our dreams.  There will be difficulties, but if you know you have to climb mountains and go through valleys in order to reach the destination of your dream, then those difficulties won't be at all daunting to you.

The world needs you to be you, and you can be you only when you're true to your personal dreams and desires.  Something great doesn't have to affect the entire world--it can be something simple but enduring and important.  And great is different for each person, too.

You know your dreams.  Only you know your dreams.  Find them, live them, love them, and pursue them.  Only when you do so will you be pursuing your authentic self.  There's no need to cast aside your present life--don't let that idea hold you back.  The great novel can be written in an hour a day for a year.  The new curriculum can be developed early in the morning before the day starts.  Your dreams are yours, and they are within your reach.  You have to stand up and reach for them, though.

Questions to consider:

What are some of your most important dreams?

Why do so many people find it difficult to pursue their dreams?

Who is keeping your from pursuing your dreams?

For further thought:

Your dream might change our planet.
