Oppotunity or Destiny

We all have dreams. Some are big while others are small but they are all dreams. Dreams have been part of us growing up. You grow up at home and dream of the day you will join your siblings if you had any go to school. Then sooner or later you are old enough to start school, yet that dream becomes something you are scared of. Remember my first day at school? Then the dream changes to getting promoted to the next class.

Life is like that. Once one dream is accomplished a new dream surfaces, the absence of which makes life  less challenging and boring. The dream to write and pass your first exams at the end of your elementary school followed by the dream to write and pass your Junior High school final exams which leads to the Senior High school. Now your dreams are about getting into college or university.

In all these dream, we find that everyone has these dreams but not everyone achieves them at the time they want to. The reason being some have the opportunity to achieve their dreams others are not able for one reason or the other. How does destiny come to play in all these?



Most often our dreams are not aligned with our destiny and so they fizzle out with time even with the right opportunity. What we carry is not only to be a blessing to us but to others. For example, Bill Gates may have founded Microsoft, which has made him one of the richest people on earth today, but the product Microsoft is helping many in business and education as well as other spheres of life.

If Bill Gates had not founded Microsoft, we world wouldn't be able to make use of his products and that probably wouldn't have made him as rich as he is today. We must therefore not treat our dreams lightly because others might depend on our dreams for theirs.

We are in this world to make it better in every way than we met it for posterity. The choices we make, the decisions we make, the beliefs we have, have a way of affecting the dreams we have or carry.

Let us guard our dreams jealously and work towards achieving them no matter how long it takes they would certainly bring change if not to the world, certainly to us.
