At times, I pause to remember... that it is good to remember that everything we have, we have because we've worked really hard.
Really, really hard.
We've worked hard to get what we have now. We didn't always have it. No one is just 'born' with it these days. Even those who are... have to prove that they're worthy of it.
And so we go to work.
We work tirelessly. We press on, driven. We look at what we think is impossible and we say to ourselves, "we'll find a way."
The world says we won't be able to do it. That we won't be able to pull it off. That we can try but that - for what ever reason - we aren't good enough to get what we want.
Some say we're dreaming, and that we'll never do better than right now.
But... they say that because they're not dreamers. They just do. What they're told. What they need to do. What their 'checklist' of 'best practices' says they need to do.
We, however, dream.
Some can't understand it. It's not that they don't want to, surely they would if they could.
They're just not us.
It's not what they're programmed to do.
Because we're not like them.
We dream. And then, we do.
And that doing... is the work. The hard... really hard work... which we do... which makes dreams come true.
