All of us have greatness within us. Whether or not that greatness is expressed in our lives depends on the amount of effort we put into developing it.
However, we cannot develop our greatness without a goal. But not just any goal will work. We need a goal that makes our hearts sing and that brings happiness and joy to ourselves and others.
Without such a goal, we won’t even have the desire for greatness. Without a dream, every day is arduous and we cannot create what we want. A goal that comes from our heart is based on the truest truth, and only the truth itself can create.
So as 2011 approaches, look inside your heart for that precious dream, a dream you are willing to pray fervently for and one you will never give up. Although that dream may seem impossible, keep visualizing and feeling what it will be like when you achieve it. Feel grateful for your dream and everything that comes with it, even before it becomes a reality.
To inspire you, here is a song I’ve been playing a lot lately. If you keep listening to this song, your consciousness will awaken, your heart will open, and you’ll be ready to move forward toward your dream.
The Impossible Dream
Sung by Rhydian Robert
From the 1965 musical, Man of La Mancha
To dream, the impossible dream
To fight, the unbeatable foe
To bear, with unbearable sorrow
To run, where the brave dare not go
To right, the unrightable wrong
And to love, pure and chaste from afar
To try, when your arms are too weary
To reach, the unreachable star
This is my quest, to follow that star
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
And to fight for the right, without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell, for a heavenly cause
And I know if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm,
When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
The unreachable star
I’ll always dream, the impossible dream
And yes I will reach
