Dream on…greatness comes from marrying actions and dreams:
Now – let me add another twist. Truth.
Truth is what we often mistake for credibility; facts (which we often mistake for truth); proof of our positions and points of view and a general certitude that we are right and others are wrong.
Needless to say, the more on the fringes you are, the more your truth is the truth – the only truth; the ultimate truth.
In politics it always amazes me how many True positions can be found around one seemingly simple issue; in life it’s astonishing how many relationships can be broken around Truths, and in business Truth is one of the biggest barriers to successful business outcomes as my truth and your truth and their truth battle it out for the final truth.
Sounds rather apocalyptic, yet it doesn’t have to be – shouldn’t be. End of the world scenarios are not conducive to any kind of relationship – certainly not long…and not even short.
Think about all the truths we know – personal, religious, business – and see if you can list them and then look up someone else’s view of the same truths. I just did – very enlightening – humbling…
So doubt it all and add the newfound doubt to your dreams – I can almost guarantee (not quite – would go against my thought…) that your dreams will change and the greatness of your acts will increase. As I said, try it.
So new equation: (Dreams) x (total skepticism) plus actions = greatness.
New additions to the equation are actively being solicited!!!
