I Have Within Me All the Dreams in the World
I have within me all the dreams in the world. The dreams you fight for can come true. Although, it might not happen in the same way you imagined. Because this world is full of infinite possibilities. And though those possibilities might surprise you, if you don’t give up, they can lead you towards what you are fighting so hard for.
This might all sound too utopian for you. You might be one of those people who think that not everything can come true, because not everything is possible. Well, without ever losing sight of reality, I hope that if you keep reading you will change your mind. Just think that, sometimes, possibilities are simply disguised in different ways. Therefore, some of them may pass a little unnoticed.
I invite you to think about your own dreams while you read this article. You might discover a different path towards accomplishing them. You never know. Either way, life has different surprises in store for you, and you aren’t even aware of it. Now, open your eyes and your mind in order to understand what you are about to read.
“You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”
-Imagine, John Lennon-
Round ideas do not fit into square minds
Round ideas do not fit into “square minds”, because in the lives of those with “square minds” there is only one way of thinking. These are the people who tell you to stop dreaming. The ones who keep repeating for you to put your feet back on the ground. Because there is a long way to go between what you long for and what is tangible.
Do you think dreaming about flying is a utopian idea? It is if you are convinced it is. It is if you simply wait for wings to grow out of your back for you to take off. But if you don’t listen to those “square minds” and decide to fight for your dreams, you might prove just how mistaken they are.
Men have dreamed about flying since birds have existed. Many of them gave up when they realized wings did not grow on humans. But there was someone who did not let that dream rest in the back of his mind. And he actually achieved taking his feet off of the ground. That someone was Leonardo Da Vinci, who decided to see the possibilities of his aspirations and built a pair of wings which allowed him to take off.
Now this example might seem simple to you, but in his time he was considered crazy. This also happened to those who wanted to walk on the water, until someone made it possible by building the first boat. Because history has proven that many projects labeled as madness by “square minds” have not only become reality, they changed the world as we knew it up until that moment.
In all of these cases, the authors had to deal with the conformity with which others tempted and, in some cases, tortured them.
If you can dream it, you can do it
If you can dream it, you can do it. Although, you have to fight quite hard for it. You might be surrounded by square minds, vampires of hope and monsters that kill other people’s dreams. Yet, you are the one who has to fight for your dreams. Nobody is going to give anything away to you in a world full of “square minds”.
But, what are your dreams? Do you really fight for them? Many times you dream about being rich while you wait to win the lottery by siting on your couch. Well, nobody ever said that for your dreams to come true you would have to simply sit and wait.
For example, if you dream about being rich, you will have to define what that means to you. Is it having so much money you don’t know what to do with it? Is it having enough money for you and your family to live well? Or is it simply having enough money to be happy? But then, what does it mean to be happy?
Maybe you had never stopped to think about these questions. It could be that being rich forms part of your dreams just because it forms part of almost everyone else’s dreams. Although, almost everybody considers those dreams as utopian. They are this way, because they have not truly considered the reality of achieving them, not even of grazing them with the tips of their fingers. Their dreams are not real, and that is why for them they will remain in a dream world.
But here I tell you and repeat once more that, if you can dream it, you can accomplish it. But you can only do it if you are clear about what your dreams are. They must be yours, and you must have the courage to fight for them.
Do not think about failure like those who complain of not fulfilling their dreams while they talk about it simply sitting down, never having wanted to fight.
If you fight for your dreams you will make them come true
So, gather strength and don’t stop dreaming. Because if you fight for your dreams, you will make them come true. It might take you a long time, and you might not see its results. But life is no piece of cake, so keep fighting. Maybe they wont arrive exactly as you have pictured them. But that which you didn’t imagine is that which will make you the happiest person in the world in the future.
Open your eyes and your mind, do not deny that which you cannot see now. Reality always surpasses fiction thanks to those who are able to fight and dream of something better. Don’t ever stop dreaming. And don’t accept those who tell you reality cannot be changed.
That is why I have within me all of the dreams in the world. That way I can choose the ones I want to fight for without blocking myself from seeing other things that might lead me to the one thing I want the most, happiness. Surrendering to those who do not fight and cannot see above and beyond does not help. As well as just waiting for everything to work out without putting in the effort. Only he who risks it all can win. And only he who fights can obtain that one thing that, for a moment, is written in his dreams.
