Off all the questions we leave unanswered the one that comes back to haunt us the most is
What if I had married my college sweetheart?
What if I had been born rich?
What if I had planned a little less?
What if I could write a novel?
What if I could make my own movie?
What ifs are never idle fantasy. These are our hopes dreams and desires. Logic and reasons are the “Naphthalene balls” we use to pack them away into a sandook called ‘someday’ but when that day comes, we are too poor, too old, too tired or too lazy.
This is what Steve Jobs said during his commencement address at Stanford University,
“You cannot connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust...in something…your gut, destiny, life….karma whatever. This approach has never let me down and it has made all the difference in my life. Believing that dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off the well worn path and that will make all the difference.”
So, anyway what exactly I wanted to tell was if you dream and dream big and take the necessary action to follow it, you can achieve it at some point of time.
As famously said by Walt Disney, “ If you can dream it, you can do it.”
I dreamed of seeing me as an author and today I am one.
