Short Speech by: James Revels III
There are two types of people in this world.
Those who are living the dream and those who dream of living.
The latter are the has beens, posers, and wannabes; the anxious, fearful and unmotived as well as the melodramatics, the prima donnas and the drama queens.
The former type, however, are the legends, innovators, and future leaders; the poised, fearless, ambitious as well as the joyful, the grateful, and the leaders of destiny.
The factor that distinguishes the types is one simple word….Reality. A person who dreams of living doesn’t acknowledge reality, They constantly fight or ignore the truth. They make excuses when they are fully capable. They find problems where there are none and refuse to embrace the truth that they can take control of their own lives.
A person who is living the dream acknowledges reality in all its glory. They try all options before calling quits, even then failure doesn’t stop them. They appreciate what’s good, wherever it may be and fix problems whenever they find them and finally, they refuse to believe the lie that cicumstance dominates a person’s entire life.
So which side are you on? The answer is both. No one is perfect, but ask yourself this as you close your eyes to sleep tonight.
Are you one step closer to waking up to your dream life or waking up from a dream of life.
