Five Types of People Occupy the World

There are those with NO DREAMS. They exist day to day with no dream or imagination. Going through life without a dream is like going shopping without a list, without a game plan. Having no dreams results in frustration, boredome, and regrets.

Then, there are people with SMALL DREAMS. We have become a people with small dreams because we are afraid of failure. Many people challenge themselves only to the point of not failing. They aim low and hit it every time. However, there is no sin in trying and failing, but there is the sin of failing to try. Success is often failure turned inside out. If you are going to dream, don’t make it a small dream.

A third type of person is one who has the WRONG DREAMS. Before you invest your life in a dream, find out if it is worthwhile. An example of the wrong dream is trying to impress other people. It just isn’t worth it. In the eyes of some people, you can be a hero one day and a zero the next day. Have a dream, have a goal, but make sure you don’t lean your ladder against the wrong wall.

There are those who have no dreams, or a small dream, or the wrong dream, and there are people who have a VAGUE DREAM. You may have some idea of what you want to be and do in life, but it is vague and unclear and uncertain. Many person journeys through life without ever clarifying and defining his dreams.

Finally, there are people with GOD’S DREAM. These are people who know where they are headed because they have received a dream from God, and are committed to achieving that dream. They are not afraid to take risks. Their faith is great. If you wish to have God’s dream, you must never be afraid to attempt something great if it is for the glory of God and the growth of His kingdom. God is able to do immeasurably more than we can ever ask or dream of.

What type of person are you? A person with NO DREAM? A person with SMALL DREAMS? A person with the WRONG DREAM? A person with a VAGUE DREAM? Or a person with GOD’S DREAM? If you have a dream be prepared to suffer, and if necessary, to die for it. Or quit dreaming and save yourself the trouble. That’s our choice. We can choose to follow, believe, and commit our lives to God who is able to do far more than we can ask or imagine, or we can quit dreaming and save ourselves the trouble. I have decided to live my life with the confidence that today’s impossibilities are tomorrow’s miracles. Almighty God is able.

    it helps to have just the right amount or size{?} of dreams to keep us going day in day out, it may not be as grand as conquering the world or winning first prize in a prestigious competition, whatever really floats your boat is what really matters…now am thinking is my dream of having my little fellow educated in UP just enough to keep me going? 🙂

    happy weekend…

      Oh yes indeed! What matters is that this dream would keep you getting up from the bed everyday, and that you know that this dream is just within your reach 🙂 I hope our children will be classmates in U.P. in the future 🙂

    I love the inspirational/educational pieces you write. They make me think, and I know you’ve been there.

    OK. I am a vague dreamer, mostly because I’d like to write a book, but I don’t know how. So my blog is how I practice being a writer. I do believe it’s God’s will for me to pursue this. There is a miracle happening in my life every day that is astounding, but I don’t write about it out of respect for other people who are involved. Not yet, anyway… : )

    Your words inspire me today… I’m excited to start thinking of myself in a different way. Linda the Writer. Hugs… : )
