A little boy, hooked on science fiction books, had a dream of one day going to Mars. Today, this little boy runs SpaceX. SpaceX made history in 1998 by being the first private company to send a rocket into space. This little boy’s name was Elon Musk.
Another little boy dreamed of being the best golfer in the world. He lived and breathed golf every day. His dreams were filled with visions of winning golf tournaments and lofting trophies over his head. By age 24 this little boy had won 17 PGA tournaments. That was back in March of 2000, a record that still stands to this day and is unlikely to ever be broken. That little boy was Tiger Woods.
A short, undersized boy, with a speaking impairment entered Kent College. He had a dream of one day becoming a college football coach. No one in his family had ever gone beyond high school. In 1988 Notre Dame finished 12-0, having beat Miami (then #1), USC (then #2) and West Virginia (then #3). That short, undersized boy with a lisp, was Lou Holtz.
Dreamers have a very clear vision of who they want to be and take massive action in an effort to create the life they desire, the life of their dreams. When you have a clear vision of the life you desire, no obstacle, mistake, or adversity will stand in your way.
