Indeed, you can’t separate leadership life from dreams; leaders bring dreams. Solid dreams often sound crazy and you shouldn’t be surprised if people think that you are mad. This is usually the response to great dreams. So, if you have a great dream and you are getting negative responses, don’t worry you’re in good company. All great leaders have had to endure that response to their dreams at some points.
You shouldn’t be afraid to have very big dreams. Plans are supposed to be reasonable but dreams are not supposed to be reasonable. It is after you have an unreasonable dream that you now bring a reasonable plan to accomplish it. You don’t start a life of greatness with reasonable plans; it will never be great. Most people plan on their salaries, you can plan on your salary but you don’t dream on your salary. You can be a primary school teacher and have a dream of being a university chancellor someday. There is no crime in dreaming while you are in class.
Leaders think in terms of dreams. In fact, leaders live in the world of dreams; they occasionally visit people in the real world. The fabric on which any society’s greatness is constructed are the dreams of past leaders. They just dared to dream and their dreams of yesterday are the realities of today and the promises of tomorrow. God talks to human beings in the language of dreams; He just gives you some pictures. Leaders dream big and if you will acquire the leadership life, so must you.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive light in the midst of darkness and sound mind that perceives beyond the obvious in Jesus’ name. Amen!
