When Your Dream Scares You!
If your dream is as crazy as mine you will be able to relate with this piece. Quoting Steve Jobs “Here’s to the crazy ones — the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
I am scared of my dreams, sometimes it feels more like a burden than a blessing. I often wonder how far apart they set me, how odd they make the way I see things, how I perceive my environment and how I comprehend and interpret events. What i desire, what my soul yearns for seems to be far fetched but that seems not to stop me from desiring them, the nature of My dream!
People want to be contented but that seems to me they want to be limited. Friends want some cars but I want fleets. Colleagues want to have houses but I want estates. Mates want to get high paying jobs but I just want to be the one paying. Most people I know want happy homes but I want a happy world. Guys I have pacts with want to be blessed but I want to be a blessing. I want much more, more than a man can give to another man, that’s the nature My dream!
I know that with great dreams come great tribulations but because I know still doesn’t make it less scary. I know at the end of the tunnel is a bright light but that still doesn’t make the tunnel less dark. People commend my brilliance, but that seems not to be gratifying enough again, just as the dreams are no longer enough and my heart aches for actualization. I pray, I meditate, I strategize and I actualize but I know only God can make things materialize such as My dream!
Don’t be scared if people don’t understand you, don’t be derailed when most can’t make sense of your dream, it might feel like a burden, sound like an impossible but soon when it is birth the world will celebrate you. That’s what keeps me going, as i nurture My dream!
If you have dreams as terrifying as mine, know you are not alone and by all means if you don’t give up, the future is very bright. What you feel is not wrong, trust me, being called ambitious is not as bad as people want you to think. Desiring to impact on a big scale is not as crazy as they want you to believe… You, me, don’t happen too often but whenever we happen we change history.
