“When you find yourself in the thickness of pursuing a goal or dream, stop only to rest. Momentum builds success.” ---- Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem
Dreams! We all have dreams. Some are big; some are little. But when we can live our dreams, that day our success is marked.
The #Cog by Honda Accord is possibly the best ever example, of how small efforts or events coagulate in a chain reaction to create something which is a huge dream.
In 2002 Honda Motor Company was the number-three Japanese automobile manufacturer in the world, behind Toyota and Nissan.
While Honda’s automobile sales in Japan and the United States were considered strong, sales in the United Kingdom and mainland Europe were thought to be weak, even though automobile production in the United Kingdom had been ongoing for a decade.
Further, Honda vehicle sales had been declining in these regions since 1998. As a solution, they contracted with the Wieden+Kennedy ad agency and asked them to formulate an advertising campaign which could directly promote "The Power of Dreams" launched in 2002, And the results were right there.
The chain interaction of small efforts to create a huge Accord hit the buyers as well as the automobile market; the ad became so popular, that Honda almost changed the landscape of advertisements. Hence, when you believe in your dreams, you can gradually work with small steps towards it.
Many people presume that dreams are unrealistic and that is why the name given to big ambitions as a dream (which can never come true). However, those who strive towards making their dream come true are winners.
Achievement is pride but dreaming is love and life itself.
If you don’t have a big dream, you don’t have a goal and life becomes stagnant there.
There is no point of living if there is nothing unachieved that you are craving for.
There should be the hunger which will give you the determination to go on.
There will be a lot of difficulties in the path of achieving what you really want to. There will be hardships, breakdowns, mishaps and personal loses but nothing should stop you from rising from the ashes.
As Shannon L. Alder said
1. If you don’t believe the impossible can happen, then you are right.
2. When you feel like you are less than others, then you are right.
3. When you believe what you have and how you were raised keeps you from having everything you ever dreamed of, you are right.
4. When you believe your mistakes can’t be undone, you are right.
5. When you feel this is the best it is going to get, you are right.
6. When you think someone will never change or rise above their brokenness, you are WRONG!”
Beliefs make up your life. You have to believe that you are able; nothing is impossible.
Some are satisfied with the ordinary life that is going on; but some want to turn it into something extraordinary and they are successful.
“Most people give up just when they’re about to achieve success. They quit on the one yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game one foot from a winning touchdown.” Ross Perot
May be you are not quite far off. You may be near achievement of your dream, but you have to fight till the end.
Your dream should be wholesome so that the hunger is big and that will help you attain an indomitable spirit to fight against all odds.
Failure is not an issue; you learn from it to get better. A mismanaged attempt should not pull you back, in fact, your will power should be strengthened further with a failed movement.
Once you can live your dream, you can claim that the life was really worth living.
