“If I had asked what people wanted, they would have said they wanted better horses and I gave them an automobile.” – Henry Ford
Henry Ford was a true entrepreneur and a visionary who believed so much in the picture he had in his mind that he didn’t have to wait for the approval of others. Many people’s dreams and ideas never see the light of day because they rely so much on the outside world for them to function. The trouble with this reliance on the outside world is that no one can see what you see in your mind, feel the intensity of it and later suffer the regret of wondering what would have happened had you tried it out. You don’t need to be an entrepreneur to make a difference in the world, just be the best of whatever you are. To be the best, you need to get rid of the attitude of doing what’s just enough for you get by, no, this is mediocrity.
Vincent van Gogh, another greatest painter, once said, “When I sleep I dream my painting and when I wake up, I then paint my dream.” This tells us about the power of having a clear picture of what you want to do in life, irrespective of whether it makes sense to others or not, it’s about you. Your life is called your life because it was given to you. Your life can be likened to a clay that can be used to mould anything you wish. Sadly, most people die with the clay having never been used because they copy other peoples models instead of focusing on what’s in them in a form of a desire.
Michelangelo another greatest painter said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” What is your angel (future) that you are seeing in this marble called life? When will you set it free?
You are a miraculous creation created to create a bigger version of yourself. Don’t let the noise silence your inner voice and dust cloud your judgement and blind you from clearly seeing your angel. The mind is such a powerful gift in that it holds the future promise for us. You are too special to live and be defined by your past, you deserve much better, keep dreaming and set your angel free!
