One thing that we associate with Eagles is vision. Bible says, “Without a vision, the people perish”. The one thing that makes the difference between a mediocre life and magnificent achievement, is vision. Patanjali, a second century B.C. philosopher, said, “When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties, and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
Visionaries of the world, unite! John Lennon said, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.” I say, lead me to the dreamers. There is no place in a visionary’s life for limitations, excuses and half measures. She is inspired and alive, unshackled by the status quo. He rises like a phoenix from every setback, more excited and motivated than ever before, stronger, more determined, more focused. Read the story of Conrad Hilton, who said himself of his goal to acquire the Waldorf, “The year 1931 [the Great Depression] was a presumptuous, an outrageous time to dream”!
It’s never too late to get a vision for your life, to start believing again, to start living. Mix with people who are sold out to their visions, who have the courage to take the road less traveled, and you will find yourself amongst giants. If we believe, we will achieve. But you can’t have a dream come true, if you don’t have a dream. Start dreaming. Take off the judge’s robes and set your imagination free – be true to your inner self, because, take it from me, dreams DO come true.
