This sounds rather simple, and the truth: IT IS. Today we all are running around at nine million miles an hour constantly doing things we think are SO important and meaningful, when in reality if we stopped, slowed down and focused on one thing at a time we would be able to see the bigger picture.
"The essence of leadership is being able to see the ice burg before it hits the Titanic." Huffington says in this talk.
She's right! By constantly pushing our bodies to the brink every day we begin to literally walk around like the living dead. Being a zombi gets you nowhere accept blown apart by Bruce Campbell's Boom-stick.
Not to mention dreams. Living in constant reality does not give the body time dream and dreams are extremely important. Through dreams humans are able to grasp beyond everyday life and imagine the unimaginable. People learn what they are to live for, what they want to strive for and most importantly they learn who they want to become. I believe Arianna Huffington merely scratched the surface with this issue. It is only through our dreams that we are able to conceptualize what we want our world to become.
I feel there is no better way to end my 30 days than on a note about dreams. I have so many for this blog, and for my own future. Without a doubt this challenge has enriched my experiences and given me entirely new perspectives on things I never would have heard about otherwise. I am proud to say that I have completed this challenge and look forward to passing the blog off to the next student.
Best wishes! And don't forget to Dream big!
