There is nothing more sad and sickening that to see a person who nurses a dream, an ambition, always wishing and hoping, but never doing anything about it. He nurses the flickering dream, but never lets it break out into flame.
Some of you are that way. You talk and think about having a second income, or owning your own business, or pursuing your dreams.
Or maybe you have private dreams in other areas: you want to go back to school to pursue another degree; you have a small business and you are thinking about expanding; you want to travel abroad; you want to start a career of becoming a speaker or writing a book.
I could go on and on with this list. Too many of you dream but you never dare say I can and I will put my dreams out there by taking action no matter how small the efforts may be, because you are afraid to fail.
But if this is true with you, you have to know that finally when all is said and done, the only thing that counts if you mattered. Will you be satisfied that you never did anything about your life while you could.
According to medical science, a healthy man produces around 40 million to 1.2 billion sperm cells during ejaculation, and only one has to fertilize the female egg. Imagine that of all that competition, you won, you did it, and you came out here. But what for? If you came here to live in fear and mediocrity, why did you come here? Why did you win, to come and occupy space?
Whatever you really want to do, quit talking about it and do it. How will you ever know if you can paint that picture, run that business, sell that vacuum cleaner, earn that degree, hold that office, make that speech, win that game, marry that girl, write that book, bake that pie, build that house-unless you try it!
