Dare to dreamApril 3rd, 2012 | Posted by in Perspectives
Years ago as I was leaving my childhood home to go out on my own, my dad pulled me aside and gave me some wonderful advice. He said, “If you don’t take care of yourself, no one else will.” I have thought on his words time and again. At first I didn’t quite understand what he meant. It didn’t take long. Once I was in my new college environment I began to see the wisdom in those words. By the way I’m not talking about selfish notions here. The scope of taking care of oneself is vital to health and wellbeing. Once I realized this a whole new understanding developed. I realized that if I believed in me, I almost always accomplished my goals. So that’s my tid-bit of advice. I ask you, why would anyone want to give up? Is there some grand prize in that? I don’t think so. And so I say to anyone who has ever had a dream, dare to believe. Dare to keep your dreams alive! Dare to face failure and try your hardest in the face of uncertainty. But most of all never, never, NEVER give up.
