Do You Have a Dream?

By C.C. Owens

Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper. ~ Proverbs 13:4

Working hard? Yuck. That sounds like … well … work! Why would I want to do that? Because working hard gets you places.

Truett Cathy, the founder of the Chick-fil-A restaurants, sold bottles of Coca-Cola door-to-door in his neighborhood before he started high school. NBA legend Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. He then practiced tirelessly all summer, made it on the team that fall, and proceeded to average 25 points a game during his last two years of high school. The rest of his stats can be found in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

What do these two guys have in common? They didn’t just dream – they worked! That’s how you reach a dream.

So, what is your dream? Are you doing anything about it? A very smart lady once said, “Goals are dreams with deadlines.” Think about what you can do to reach your dream. Then, take one step today and keep taking steps. Remember, anyone can have a dream, but only those who work hard will prosper.

Do you have a dream you’re working toward? We’d love to hear about it.
