“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream buy night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they make act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.” ~ T. E. Lawrence
I’ve been thinking a lot recently about how we get things done in the world. I’ve found myself afraid of stepping forward and actually conquering the things I’ve been dreaming about. Even when the opportunity is right in front of me, I will stop the dreams from becoming a reality. It’s like I’m afraid to take my dreams out of the “idea” phase and actually act. Every time I have this fear that it won’t turn out the way I want or that I was dreaming about the wrong things. But someone once told me that that moment of doubt is a sign that you’re doing the right thing. Because evil will consistently try to turn you away from doing real good. We all have those dreams, both simple and complex, that that we wish would see the light of day. But we are afraid to make that step. We are afraid that when the light shines on them, it will reveal something bad. I think that if we ever really want to accomplish anything, we have to make that leap. Doubt should not hold us back, it should push us further.
