It’s a terrible thing to see and have no vision

Every great achievement was once impossible until someone set a goal to make it a reality. Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass contains a story that provides an example of the need to dream the impossible dream.

There is a conversation between Alice and the queen, which goes like this:

“I can’t believe that!” said Alice.

“Can’t you?” the queen said in a pitying tone. “Try again, draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.”

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said. “One can’t believe impossible things.”

“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

When you see yourself doing what you dream about in your mind, not only does it makes appear real and achievable, but  it helps to programme your mind to believe it.

The trouble is, some people have stopped dreaming and abandoned all hope of achieving their aspirations and other people never had dreams to begin with

Helen Keller once said “It’s a terrible thing to see and have no vision”.

If you don’t have a dream, where does that leave you?
