John Lennon Was A Dreamer, Are You?
John Lennon was a dreamer, are you? John Lennon followed his dreams and turned them into his reality, he did not just sit on his butt and wish he had, or thought man I should have done this or that or the other, no he just did it. So just do it, like Nike says. Lennon loved music and started a band, brought in George and Paul, but Lennon was the glue that brought them together, because he had a vision, he had a dream to become a legend and he accomplished that, and when he said The Beatles were bigger than Jesus, he was not kidding and he was telling the truth. So what are we going to do with the time that we have left on this planet, while the blood is still pumping through our veins and while are brains are still firing? How can we become John Lennon, not that I want to become a songwriter but maybe you do, so start writing, what are you waiting for, just do it. Phil Jackson, the legendary coach for Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant, once said “You are going to miss 100% of the shots that you do not take.” This quote is profound on many levels because when you first read it your like, “duh” yea that is common sense Phil, but truly think about it, what do you want to do with the short amount of time you have left on this planet, what makes you happy, what is your purpose, and if you think you do not have a purpose, then focus on what make you happy, how can you achieve your bliss, by finding bliss. However, if you never take a chance on your dreams then how do you expect to achieve them, how do you ever expect to find your bliss and nirvana if you never follow your heart in search of these truths? You have to act, you have to do, something. I cannot tell you what that is only you can find it within yourself. John Lennon was a dreamer, but after he dreamed he became a doer and that is where most people fail when it comes to their full potential, and I am no different, but today is the day that we all start the path to not just follow but to actually achieve our dreams. John Lennon was exceptional and a genius when it came to art, where do you excel? Maybe you think, well I want to do this but I have to do that. Why can you not do both? Every minute that you see tick by on your computer screen is another minute that you can never take back, what dream do you want to see become a reality. Stop living someone else’s dream and start living yours, because this life is what we make it and stop being like everyone else who blames their misfortunes on everyone but themselves, take action, stand up for yourself, do not take the path but blaze your own trail.
