Purpose in Each Step
“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe” — Anatole France
What are the reasons behind your actions?
Motion is good. Motion gets you places. However, behind every act we take, must be a purpose — a dream — for taking it.
Dreams and action go hand in hand. One shows you where you are going, the other shows what’s in front of you. If you just stepping forward, without intention, without dreams, without believe, you’re going to end up exactly where you started. Having action and no dream is like marching forward without a ounce of direction (or reason why your marching there in the first place). If all you do is dream, without action to back it up, there’s nothing that’s going to make that dream any closer to reality than it is now.
Having both dream and action is like dancing your way towards success — you might not know the exact steps you will take (and need to take), but it sure will be fun on the way there.
