Amazingly powerful words from a 12 year old girl Eunice Akoth (Poet) from Kenya.
“Every mighty king was once a crying baby! Every great tree was once a tiny seed! Every tall building was once in paper! And so I dream my dream!” she yelled
There is such immense inspiration and courage in the simple words written by this gifted Poet .
How often have we as individuals ,teams and organisations found ourselves questioning our dreams and goals. There can be 101 reasons that can be found to justify a ‘No’ but it takes a lot of courage to be able to find a silver lining and say “Yes”... to keep believing in your dream.
However small or insignificant you think your dreams are it does not matter what matters is the resolution and the power of thought that you hold inside you to dream big, achieve and fly .
‘Every mighty king was once a crying baby!’ - A journey of thousand miles always starts with the first step and most often it’s that very first step that is the most difficult one . We have to go one step at a time … it will hurt , there will be pain and there will be sacrifices along the way … but in the end all will be worth it once you fulfill your dream .Do not feel dishearten when you trip and fall, do not let the hurdles slow you down . Get up every time you fall as today you are stronger than what you were yesterday .Dream to be a king so that you can lead teams and people who look up to you to success and glory .
‘Every great tree was once a seed!’ - It is the power that we holds inside our hearts that drive our dreams and make us successful. Seed is the beginning of a great tree, the more you water it and take care of it the stronger the tree will become. It’s very important to have faith in the power of seed. Faith can move mountains .
‘Every tall building was once in paper’ - The tallest of buildings that stand on the planet today depicting themselves as epitome of human achievement started from an idea and a line drawn with a pencil on a paper . Ideas need to be thought through well and planning is the ‘golden key’. One can achieve greatest of feats if it is planned well. Planning helps convert our goals and vison from an invisible idea to something 3 dimensional .
‘And so I dream my dream’ - Man has moved through thousands of years of evolution only with the power of dreaming . No dream is too small to be overlooked and no dream is too big that it cannot be manifested … it is in us to dream as we have the power to dream !
