“To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
Sunset on Mars
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far”
“The Impossible Dream (The Quest)”: from
Man of La Mancha lyrics by Joe Darion.
If all that was needed to succeed was an education, we’d all be billionaires. Unfortunately, what’s needed is much more than what you can get from a classroom. The classroom will help you make ends meet, but if you want to be a hero, to become great, them you need much more.
You need to be able to dream, to dream of something which outwardly seems impossible, or extremely difficult to attain. You need to be prepared to fight whatever stands in your way, no matter how many others before you faced it and failed. You must be ready to go into areas where others are afraid to go into. To be willing to face the unknown.
You have to set a high enough goal for yourself, then go after it no matter how difficult it becomes, or how tired you get.
You have to look others in the eye and proclaim loudly that this is your dream. This is what you will accomplish before you die. You have to believe in your heart that you will pursue this quest no matter where it leads you,no matter how hopeless it seems, no matter how far you must go, and no matter who stands in your way. You have to know in your heart that you will attain this goal.
This is what separates the strong from the weak, the determined from the hesitant.
