Do you have a dream?
Have you seen The pursuit of happyness?? If not, I really recommend it for that evening when you would like to do something you haven’t done for a long time. If you have seen it, maybe you will remember the following.
At some point in the movie there is a scene with a discussion father – son that I especially loved:
Don’t ever let somebody tell you… you can’t do something. All right?
You got a dream, you got to protect it!
People can’t do something themselves they wanna tell you: you can’t do it.
If you want something go get it. Period.
I see this as a very good discussion to use when you want to help others without projecting into their minds your own limited beliefs. The character played by Will Smith prepares his son for different life situations, making him understand now that he can achieve whatever he thinks at without having to trust bad people or those less inspired by fortune.
Do you have a dream? Well, I know the answer is: yes! And my reaction to it is: Great!
Everything very good so far. Now, what are you going to do with it? Will you let it be only that, an immaterial idea? Or you will protect it with all your strength?
I am very curious to find out what people do with their own dreams… I would like to know what you do to protect your dream? Go ahead, open up a new email box and write a paragraph telling what are ou doing today to live up to your dream. If you send it to me, we will meet on skype afterwards 🙂
