Dreams do come true.

This is not to imply that there is any magic involved here. Quite the opposite, in fact. The fruition of a dream is born out of hard labor, from the sweat of determination and the sore muscles of perseverance. Any dream that ever made a difference required effort. Yours is no different.

For a dream is not a mere flower that will blossom if you sprinkle it with the thin waters of hope. No, a dream is a monument that must be constructed brick by brick, a marathon to be run step by step. You will be tempted to give up, and you may; you would not be the first.

But you must try. Grab that dream with both hands, wrestle it to the earth with a fervor born of the human spirit, and pin it there for all to see. Some may not see your dream at first; they won’t want to, for they know that if they acknowledge it, it will change their world. You will have to help them.

It may seem impossible now, but realizing your dream is straightforward:

One need only reach out, take hold, and never let go.
