Set Your Goals - Live The Dream

Sep 3, 2008
Today, I am going to tell a story of success. This story will show the importance of why set your goals, and what it means to live your dreams, rather than simply floating though life.

Once in a cave there was darkness. In this cave many were; not knowing a way. And simply not knowing at all. However, through a hole in the cave, some light entered. One of these people found that he was aware, and as he became aware, he found he and all were shackled.

As he turned his head in another direction, he saw a glimmer of light. The light illuminated him as he realized there was a choice. He did not have to stand in that place. But as he tried to find ways to unshackle himself, he could not. Others were trying to put all the shackles he took off back on!

This distressed most to fall back and carry on as the others. However, this one kept at it. He simply would not give up. In fact this pressure like how pressure works on carbon to make a diamond made this man stronger. As he got stronger and stronger, he was able to sort through the problem of the shackles, one by one.

Gradually he was able to take off all the shackles. He was running, and he was free. However, there was a door. And this door was closed. He did not know how to escape. He did stand there wondering for a while how he could get out.

He then went up to that gap and peeked through it. This venturing man found a garden, found lands more amazing then he ever imagined. As he kept his thought on this, he just knew he had to make his escape into this amazing world.

As he went to the door, he thought there was no hope. In fact all hope almost left venturing man. He knocked at the door, as that was all that was left for him to try. So he knocked, and knocked again, and again. However, he was knocking so loud, he could not hear the man on the other side of the door.

He stopped for a moment, and the voice came 'yes, how may I help you'. The venturing man said 'let me out', and then there was silence. The door creaked open, and the man was allowed out. He asked what was outside the cave, and the man said to him 'where there was darkness in here, there is light out there'.

But, the man at the door went on to tell him that it was no good telling him about it, and he would have to go and see for himself. So the man did, he went on his way. And traveled through the cave, until he found a great light. It almost blinded him.

However, he was finally here. He achieved it. He had light in his life, and was living in a place which was infinite in comparison with the cave.

We are same. If we consider TV and goal setters, we will indeed see that the TV and the world are 2 different things. Though the TV shows us possibilities, it counts for nothing. You can live your ideal life; however, you will need to act. Read, and re read this article, send to friends. Change your life.
