This week I had a chance to go to the English countryside and camp with family and friends. We all went with our tents but of different sizes and makes. All our tents had roofs some of which touched the ground. All our tents had poles or pillars to support them stand.
When I reflect on this experience and think of my dream as the roof of my tent, my goals inevitably become the pillars or poles to support my dream. The stronger the pillars the the longer my tent resisted the wind and stayed standing. The stronger my goals the longer my dreams stay alive.
In the camping site, there were strong winds to take away our tents. In life, there are lots of challenges that push us to abandon our dreams. Just as we had strong pillars to keep our tents standing, we need strong goals to support our dreams. I leave this with you: have goals that become a life and death issue to you. Have goals that will force you to use all that you have and all that you are while pursuing your dreams.
