If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.
William Arthur Ward
We are all born with the extraordinary ability to achieve great things in life. We can all be whatever we wish to, provided we really set our minds to it. This ability to have goals and accomplish them is what sets human beings apart from the other species that inhabit this planet. And it really is up to us what we make of this gift.
In a pro-technology world, the possibilities of making it big in life are limitless. As clichéd as it might sound, sky truly is the limit for an ingenious mind. No goal, no dream is out of bounds for a person, so long as he is willing to believe in that seemingly crazy dream and work hard to make it happen. Our society is brimming with examples of people who pulled of unimaginable feats, feats that no one – not even their loved ones – believed were achievable. And before all the efforts, struggles and failures that followed, all they had was a dream, an idea. It is almost as incredible as a gigantic tree sprouting from a minuscule seed. And that is both the power and the beauty of our imagination.
There is no bigger calamity than failing to attain the greatness that one is destined to. With the sea of possibilities that man has at his disposal today, the greatest disservice he can do to both himself and to mankind is overlook his innate gift. The ideas are infinite, the opportunities aplenty; all one needs is a focused mind, a persistent attitude, and an unparalleled self-belief.
William Arthur Ward was an American motivational author. Renowned for his thought-provoking quotes, Ward once wrote: “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.”
