*To live without a dream*
I have lived in misery before. Not because of karma but because of lack of understanding. Day in and day out walking the tightrope of a mundane existence. Merely existing and nothing more. I think this defines what I went through “To live without a dream”.
Let me tell you something. There is no nobility in poverty. I’ve been a rich man, and I’ve been poor man. And I choose rich every … time. Cause, At least as a rich man, when I have to face my problems, I show up in the back of a limo wearing a $2000 suit …and $40,000 gold …’ watch! Now, if anyone here thinks I’m superficial or materialistic. Go get a job at … McDonald’s, because that’s where you … belong!
– The Wolf of Wall Street – Leonardo DiCaprio Speech
Not knowing all the while I was only sleepwalking, not living. The road to hell is plagued with misunderstanding after misunderstanding, a fortune I wish on no man. My road, my mind resembled a rickety street full of potholes at this time. All because I all too well knew what it was, like To live without a dream.
Paradise can resemble hell when one has no dream in heart. Nothing to wake up to, no sense of urgency about life. An idle mind, one without a desire to aspire to anything worthwhile. To live without a dream, makes the heart unworthy of the air we breathe. The only logical recourse to be taken, is to set your sights high and give your heart a reason to beat.
“Listen, and take my advice,” she urges. “Don’t overlook the money part of it (life), I’ve been poor and I’ve been rich. Rich is better!” – Fanny Brice,
By all means, dream. Think the best for yourself, act on those thoughts and for all those around you let them feel your impact. For all those with a vision, imagine what it would be like, To live without a dream! Push to achieve your greatness and you will inspire greatness in the others. Let the passion that pushes you to excel, be heard, let your stories be told beyond the reaches of your world and even after you are long gone your name will continue to live on.
