Are You A Dreamer? – SirPhren



Do you have a dream? How big is it? Do you think you can’t achieve it? No no no no… can!

There is a huge difference between those who dream and those who make their dreams come true. Whether you want it to come true, or not, is left for you. Remember, if it is to be, you must make it be.

As Nolan Bushnell put it, “Everyone gets an idea in the shower. But the successful ones get out of the shower, dry off, and do something about it.

These 5 things below will help you, to some extent, develop your dream.
Read on!

Believe in your ability to succeed
Believe it can happen. No one can perform in a manner inconsistent with the way he sees himself. If you want to succeed, you must believe you can succeed. You must discover your dream in other to fulfil it.

Get rid of your pride
People full of themselves usually don’t have much room left over for a life-changing dreams. Pride can keep one from trying new things or asking questions simply because you are afraid of looking stupid. It makes one wants to stay in one’s comfort zone. It prevents one from taking risk. If you are, let go of your pride.

Cultivate constructive discontentment
Discontent means disgruntled in other terms. You have to be dissatisfied. I came to realized that great inventors are people who are not satisfied with everything happening around them. Also, not satisfied with what they have. This way, they find a way to constructively overcome their satisfaction, either by creating something new or by improving on what already existed. Complacency never bring success.

“If what you did yesterday still looks pretty big to you, then you have not done enough today.”

Escape from bad habit
“We are what we repeatedly do, excellence, then its not an act but a habit.”

Habit, something you do without thinking. Habit can kill a dream – a bad one at that. Because when you stop thinking, you stop questioning and dreaming. Bad habit slowly close the door on potentials.
Shake things up. What do you really care about? Develop your potential. Start making changes. Be creative. Break out of rut and start searching inside yourself for your dream.

Do something about your character
All the dreaming in the world won’t do a bit of good unless you are ready to wake up and go to work. You must create a character to try things out. Nothing will happen if you don’t have the character to follow through with action.

“If you don’t have the burning desire to wake up in the morning and do things, then your problem is…… don’t have a goal.” -LØn

Take this extra tip with it. Beware and be careful of dreamfighters. Surround your humble self with dreamlighter. Sometimes when you are trying to realize your dream, you’ll be surprised by how some people will want to light your fire and how some want to put it out.

My friend, you are onto something, I urge you to pursue and stick to it.

What Makes The GREAT Great?



Yeah, what makes the great great? You have seen their glories and you should read their stories. What makes the great great is a book written by Dennis P. Kimbro, Ph.D. I didn’t know about the book till I got to a bookshop In Lagos. Then I went in search of the 50th law of power by Robert Greene and 50cent. I couldn’t lay my hands on it and I asked the book seller to give me any nice book and he did give me What Makes The Great Great. I was glad he did.

“If you want to be great and successful, you must walk hand-in-hand with great and successful people.” Nido Qubein

The book tells of the stories of great men and women, how they were able able to stand out among the crowd and made names for themselves. The author introduces inspiring people who have achieved greatness in their own unique ways, then highlights the qualities each of us must develop before we reach our full potential.

Regardless of your definition of success, the book provides approach of turning your dream to reality. Greatness is guaranteed when you discover life’s true calling, live more courageously, access knowledge and creativity of your mind and embrace integrity in everything you do.

We all have seeds of greatness in us, what makes the great great provides the tools to discover and nourish those seeds.

Dennis P. Kimbro asked some great men and women the question, What makes the great great? See some of their responses below:

When Bill Pinkney [the first African-American to sail solo around the world and the forty-first man to do so] was asked what makes the great great, his response was; “Don’t wait! Now is the time to fulfil your destiny. We must act with courage; look forward with hope; and view life through a lens that defines what can be done rather than what cannot be done. If you are willing to work and never, never quit, you can make your dream come true.” What does this message mean to you?

Percy Sutton said, “If you have but one wish let it be for an idea.”

Robert E. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television said, “Life is a grindstone, But whether it grinds you down or polishes you up depends upon what you are made of. And Rev Jesse Jackson added, “You may not be responsible for being knocked down, but you are certainly responsible for getting back up.”

What makes the great great

Henry Park of Park Sausage said, “In one hand I have a dream and in the other I have an obstacle. Tell me, which one grabs your attention?”

When Reverend Ike was asked what makes the great great, he said, “Do what I have done. “Open up a can! The world belongs to those who say I can.”

Mae Jemison, America’s first black female astronaut, when was asked what makes the great great said, “Greatness can be captured in a lifestyle. Life is God’s gift to you, style is what you make of it.”

Quincy Jones said, “Greatness occurs when your children loves you, when your critics respects you, and when you have peace of mind.”

Cornel West, an author and a professor said, “If you want to be great, you must serve willingly and love greatly.”

Oseola McCarty said, “Do as much as you can for as many as you can.”

And according to my observation, the greats are the people who understands what it means to simplify. They are the people who face one thing, face one passion and give in their best and do not believe in being jack of all trades. They are the people with determination and unshaken focus to do what they put before them. They are the people who have desires that burn. They are the people who say I will do this and never give up until they do. – SirPhren

Do you want to be great in that field you have chosen? Now you have just read about the opinions of some of the great men and women who have lived before us. Some of what they said is still valid and it will be nice to practice them.

There is only one thing that can stop you from being great. Do you want to know? Only you can stop you.

Robert Browning said, “When a man’s fight begins within himself, he is worth something.” And Bhagavad-Gita concluded, “A man’s own self is his friend, a man’s own self is his foe.”

If you really want to get your life together, this is one of the books you should probably read.

Which of these answers to what makes the Great great your favorite? Do you also know of other qualities of the Greats? Do share with me in the comment below.
