What the mind can conceive and believe, it can be achieved.
The above quote give us well interpretation about dream and I’m pretty sure that it is very familiar to us but something that is maybe not familiar is actually the above quote is just derive from a hadith qudsi;
“Aku bertindak sebagaimana sangkaan Hamba-Ku. Dan Aku akan selalu bersama hamba-Ku jika dia mengingati-Ku. Kalau dia mengingati-Ku didalam dirinya, Aku mengingatinya dalam diriku. Apabila dia mengingatiku di khalayak ramai, Aku mengingatinya di tengah khalayak yang lebih ramai lagi (para malaikat dan seluruh makhluk).
Apabila dia mendekati-Ku sejengkal, Aku akan mendekatinya (lebih dekat lagi) sehasta. Apabila dia mendekati-Ku sehasta, Aku mendekatinya sedepa. Apabila dia mendekati-Ku dengan berjalan, Aku mendekatinya dengan setengah berlari”
(Riwayat al-Bukhari dan Muslim)
Every of us may have our dream but what kind of dream is it?
Our dream may be just a ‘day dream’ and it could be a ‘daring dream’. Daring dream can be a great things and the past shows that daring dream have change the world. Galileo has a daring dream to see the planets and he invented a first telescope. Tun Mahathir has a daring dream to see Malaysia become a respectful and progressive country, now you can see how he put our country among the developing countries in the world. However day dream nothing more than wishful dream and just make you want to nap instead of fires you up and moving you forward.
How to make it work?
Life is not easy for everyone. Sometimes it may not undergo as we planned but above all we should have perseverance and confidence in ourselves. How can a big fat panda become a Kung Fu warrior? There is no secret ingredient, you just have to believe! Allah always give the best that suit His creature.
Dreams don’t work unless you do
Quoting from one of behavioral researcher:
“Anytime I want to make a change or achieve anything in my life, I write it down, along with my plan to accomplish the goal and when I will achieve it. In this way I turn each of my goals into action.” - Shad Helmstetter
It could be summarized with my “3D principle” that I hold and practiced it. You may begin your life with a dream and you may write it down or do something that can always burn your desire to achieve your dream. Then stick to your plan with full of discipline. That’s it.
You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start to be great!
