Have you noticed how every success story starts as a dream?

Here’s a quick refresher…

“My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.”

Abraham Lincoln, 16th POTUS

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist


“Those who dream by day are cognisant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
Edgar Allan Poe, Eleonora


“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal. ... I have a dream today. ”

Martin Luther King, Jr.


Do you see yourself attaining your aspirations? How do you look in that mental picture? How does it feel? What would you do to make this dream come true?

Several times, you might have had fantasies of your desired life and the things you would want to achieve and be remembered for. But you get demoralised considering it seems farfetched.

Well, the good news is, you are on the right path by setting standards; it all starts with a dream.

If you're committed enough to dream about it, you’re responsible for achieving it.

Like every goal, your dream should withstand the heavy handedness of time, the torture of patience, the hurdles of failure and the torment of persistence. These are common elements in every success story. Without these barriers, success will be comparable to everyday events that you take for granted- the birds twittering in daylight, the stars caressing the moon- only a few might travel a thousand miles to experience such events when they can see it from the comfort of their homes.

Since everyone dreams, everyone has a success story to create. Start from the end of your story (your desired achievement) and work your way to where you are at the moment.That way, you've just created a Roadmap to your success. With the dedication of perseverance, the thirst of research, the shrewdness of accountability and the sacredness of honesty, your dreams will manifest into your reality.


Good dreams will stand chances at making generational legacies. They will create hope for a good cause or positively impact a community. Good dreams also provide support and give care.

The fact it is that a good dream will gather momentum when it’s not centred around you. Good dreams won't shatter other people's dreams nor endanger their wellbeing.

It all starts with a dream...

What's your dream?
