“THE WORLD NEEDS DREAMERS, AND THE WORLD NEEDS DOERS. BUT ABOVE ALL, THE WORLD NEEDS DREAMERS WHO DO.”- By Sarah Ban Breathnich
I had a long deliberation on this saying until I started online blogging then it all started coming together. Our dreams when pursued become problems, yet the problem being the definition of our dream may eventually generate millions of cash. Innovation did not happen by chance but by dream.
After losing $5,000 on two different occasions and £20,000 in the quest of setting up a business, I realized the issue was not my dream but implementation. The initial stage was to define the dream to a meaningful, feasible and practicable, such that implementation will not be compromised when all business modalities were applied. I noticed that, defining the dream created an easy path to identify the business name, product market niche, and above all the audience. Although delivery can be a challenge, yet it became evident Dreams grow on existing Dreams and patience assist a study process to implement. Of cause by virtue of implementation a clearer goal is inevitable.
The ultimate dream crusher is investment (CASH). My dad once said “the richest person always invested on people’s dreams” – This is where investors scout for innovators (Dreamers) or throw their funds in viable business ideas. A friend said “Poor countries are poor because rich countries sponge them”, in other words, be cautious when striking a deal with an investor, since his dream is not different from yours. You may be broke but the wrong deal could crush your entire dream of owning that unique business.
The problem with dreamers is hopping from one dream to another. It is necessary to be consistent and work through a dream to the end. Do not be tempted with other dreams unless a successful accomplishment is achieved with the first one.
