Dream Big, Dream Bold

What invites you to conceive of brave, big, and bold dreams
in your life?

Martin Luther King dreamed brave dreams. "I have a dream
that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true
meaning of its creed: all men are created equal."

John F. Kennedy dreamed bold dreams. Kennedy stated his
dream in May of 1961. "I believe that this nation should
commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is
out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely
to the Earth."

The dream became a reality on July 20, 1969, when Apollo 11
commander Neil Armstrong took a small step for himself and a
giant step for mankind, leaving a dusty trail of footprints
on the moon.

What about your bold dreams? What is in the imagination of
your heart for your goals?

Do you dream in ways that create more meaning to your life?

Start dreaming today!!

The Dawn

Do you ever notice what the dawn is really like? Take a look
at it some time and you will notice a regeneration taking

Nature doesn't have to motivate itself to begin a new day.
It begins naturally with the dawn. The sun rises over the
horizon, animal sounds begin to pervade the silence, trees
and plants awaken and a new day has surfaced.

What is your dawn like? Do you wake up and habitually do the
same things without any real awareness?

Many people begin their days with an automatic set of
thoughts, actions and feelings. What we often forget is that
each dawn is an opportunity to create the day we want. It
doesn't "dawn" on us that we can do this so instead we let
the same old thoughts, feelings and actions take over and
then we wonder why our days seem to be the same.

The earth awakens each dawn to reveal life. How do you
awaken each day?

Happy New Year!!

Hi everyone,
God bless and happy new year, it's been quite a while here, it's been work, work lately, however I have made up my mind that I will blog this year, new year resolution you can say, LOL!, so see more of you around.

TC everyone.

I just got this in my mail, I think it's a great story, so I decided to share.

In 1883, a creative engineer named John Roebling was inspired by an idea to build a spectacular bridge connecting New York with Brooklyn, however bridge building experts throughout the world thought that this was an impossible feat and told Roebling to forget the idea. It just could not be done. It was not practical. It had never been done before.

Roebling could not ignore the vision and after much discussion and persuasion he managed to convince his son Washington, an up and coming engineer, that the bridge in fact could be built. Working together for the first time, the father and son developed concepts of how it could be accomplished and how the obstacles could be overcome. With great excitement and inspiration, and the headiness of a wild challenge before them, they hired their crew and began to build their dream bridge.

The project started well, but when it was only a few months underway a tragic accident on the site took the life of John Roebling. Washington was injured and left with a certain amount of brain damage, which resulted in him not being able to walk or talk or even move.

In spite of the mockery and his handicap Washington was never discouraged and still had a burning desire to complete the bridge and his mind was still as sharp as ever. . Suddenly an idea hit him. All he could do was move one finger and he decided to make the best use of it. By moving this, he slowly developed a code of communication with his wife.

He touched his wife's arm with that finger, indicating to her that he wanted her to call the engineers. Then he used the same method of tapping her arm to tell the engineers what to do. It seemed foolish but the project was under way again.

For 13 years Washington tapped out his instructions with his finger on his wife's arm, until the bridge was finally completed. Today the spectacular Brooklyn Bridge stands in all its glory as a tribute to the triumph of one man's indomitable spirit and his determination not to be defeated by circumstances. It is also a tribute to the engineers and their team work, and to their faith in a man who was considered mad by half the world. It stands too as a tangible monument to the love and devotion of his wife who for 13 long years patiently decoded the messages of her husband and told the engineers what to do.

Perhaps this is one of the best examples of a never-say-die attitude that overcomes a terrible physical handicap and achieves an impossible goal.

Even the most distant dream can be realized with determination and persistence.

It's your life, live big!!!
