5 Characteristics of A Dream


Everybody has a dream. A yearning. A desire. An aspiration. A dream can be defined as an expected desire of the future state. It’s a mental image of the person you will like to be or what you will like to have or do.

Every dream shares these five characteristics

1. Every dream is UNIQUE.

There is no inferior dream. No two persons have exactly the same dreams even if their dreams look alike; the interpretation of such dreams will be different.Your dream is unique, different and special from others. For instances, you may dream of becoming a great writer and when you consider a number of books already written by great writers, you may feel overwhelmed, thinking what difference will your books make.

However, the truth is no person has exact combination of your name. Nobody has exactly the same experiences or ideas as yours. Even if your book is carrying the same title with another writer and similarity of ideas, a careful reader can observe differences of thoughts, analysis, focus, inferences, application and structures.

You don’t have to be intimated by what others are doing because your dream is unique and special to you.

2.Every Dream Carries A Great Potential.

Like the biblical mustard seed that was the smallest among all others seeds but when a farmer planted it, it grew to become the tallest of all trees, so is the dream in your heart. Don’t underestimate the potential of your dream. Most people have been surprised at the impact of  their work which they initially considered to be insignificant.

For instance, the book "How to Win Friends and influence people" by Dale Carnegie wasn’t expected to sell beyond few copies but to the surprise of the author the book went on to become a best-seller.

Several musicians and authors have expressed surprises on the popularity their work have gained among people. Such is the potential of a dream. The divine injunction to every dreamer is "Don’t despise the day of small beginning."

3.Every Dream Has In-built Success Potential.

We may ask what grows a seed, is it the soil, the farmer or the seed itself? The answer is all of the above. A seed needs someone to plant it(You have got to "plant" your  dream) a seed needs  soil to grow( You need to create a right atmosphere for your dream) and finally, a seed has life in itself to grow(in your dream lies the in-built success potential to succeed)

4. Every Dream Grows At Its Own Pace

You can’t hurry a seed to grow; every seed has its process of growth. Some seeds grow faster and mature earlier than others. So also are the gestation periods of different animals. Don’t compare your dreams with others; of course, you don’t expect to harvest at the same time if you have planted a coconut seed with someone who planted a groundnut seed.

5. Every Dream Has Its Own Challenges

No dream is totally free of challenges. In fact, you can’t grow a seed without covering with soil. The seed has got to fight against the weight of the soil. It can be said that difficulty makes a seed grow. Challenges are part of the process of the realization of a dream. If you have a dream, you will face challenges,and that is perfectly normal. The journey is Worthy of the travail if you are on the right route!

Rise Above Your Fears.

Fear is number one reason a potential success ends up as a potent failure!
Fear limits. 
"I could have won, if not that I was afraid to try" is a common story.
God knows fear does no good, and in 365 places for 365 days He tells you, "fear not"
"I could have done it at 20, fear told me I was too young, and people wouldn’t take me serious because of my age"
"I waited till I was 30, fear told me I didn’t have enough experience to start"
"I waited till I was 40 to gather enough experience, fear told me, I shouldn’t try it because I might fail and showed me a lot of people who have tried it and "It didn’t work"
" I brace up at 60, fear told me I am nearing the retirement age, I should wait"
"I became determined at 70, fear told me now you are too old, the work is meant for younger people"
"Now at 90, I realize I could DO IT, but the doctor has warmed me not to go out"
"How silly I was to listen to fear all along"
Go after your dreams, rise above your fears, fulfill your mission on earth.

Keep Making Efforts

Efforts add up.

Make efforts not excuses!


 Make a daily commitment to become better. There is always a room for self-improvement.


I have seen people who haven’t CHANGED in the last five years. They simply have repeated same experience for five times. They have grown older but not better!


Don’t live your life that way.
The difference between excellence and mediocrity is just an extra thought as a result of extra knowledge.


Don’t be an old dog that can’t learn new tricks.


Always stay open to new ideas.


Talent in its raw state has no commercial value, it has to be sharpened to become any commercial value.


Yet there are many uncultured talents that pass through our streets daily.
Through daily improvement,talent can become skill and skill can become competence!


Competence is talent in its final state.
There is always a place at the top to a man who is always thinking up, acting up and staying up.

Don’t forget that the enemy of best is ‘better.’


Keep Making Efforts, Don’t Look Back


Hey, buddy, you are getting closer to your goals, things are already working for you. 


Don’t allow the lack of immediate results to stop you. Sometimes, nothing happens in decades, but other times decades happen in a year! 


Your efforts are adding up. You are already building a momentum. Don’t stop! Keep on keep on.


Yes, you will face discouragements or sometimes, disappointments…but don’t stop making efforts.


Keep Making Efforts… Don’t Give UP


You may need to change your strategies, but not your goals.


Find new ways, try new methods, get new coach…whatever it takes…keep making efforts!


Be inspired by this quotes to keep making efforts.

About my New Book: Wisdom For Singles.

Wisdom For Singles

No doubt, many great relationships are failing and falling today not necessarily because of incompatibility but ignorance of certain fundamental principles that make exceptionally great relationship work. What happens when people get married is largely a reflection of the happenings during their time of courtship. A cold courtship leads to a cold marriage, a quarrelsome courtship leads to a more quarrelsome marriage and a peaceful and understanding courtship leads to a peaceful home. The good news is, if you don’t like the way your relationship is at the moment or you like to improve on your relationship, you can begin today. I have packaged this material based on my personal experience and years of learning with some technical skills as a trained counselling  Psychologist. A change begins with an exposure, now this is your change hour, grab it!
