Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true. We dream all the time.We come up with fancy ideas and build castles in the sky. How many times do we actually put our ideas to work? How many times do we lay down plans and start working on making our dreams a reality?

I believe this is what separates successful men and women from the rest of humanity. That may be oversimplifying things a little bit, but the willingness of people to act out their dreams and aspirations for the future really plays a big role in determining their lives and their status in this cruel world of ours.
The Bible also goes on to tell us that it is better to have a plan than to be swaying to and fro. I believe this applies more to the youth than to any other demographic on the planet. This is due to the fact that youth is the time when we are at our best, at our prime. It is the time when we can pull all nighters and carry on without feeling any different. Try that at fifty years of age and you’ll have a very big problem during the day.
It is during our formative years that we decide our lot for life. For the most part. There might be other extenuating circumstances that may force our hand, but one way or another, the buck eventually will have to stop with us. If you have an idea of starting a business somewhere, strike while the iron is still hot. Write it down, state what you will need. Don’t get rid of it just because you cannot see how to make it work. The lack of money should not discourage you from pursuing your dreams, from acting out your ideas.
Zuckerberg, Gates, Jobs and the rest surely did not have a ton of cash when they started. They believed in their ideas, in their dreams, and they paid the price to make those dreams come true. Some dropped out of school, others had to look high and low for investors to fund their plans. None had the money needed to fund the mammoth companies that they finally created from the word go! What makes you so sure that you cannot replicate the same fete with your idea? After all, we are all the same. No one has a larger brain than normal!
Happy are those who dream, and are ready to pay the price to make them come true. Make your life meaningful. Do not just make it revolve around getting a meal on your table every day. Do not make it revolve around the frantic and weary journey to financial security and freedom. Even billionaires still think they don’t have enough money in their bank accounts. What makes you think you’ll have enough? So focus on your dreams and your ideas, and make those dreams a reality. The price might be hefty, but it will surely be worth it in the end. You just have to be ready to pay the price!!
