Dreaming is what gets people out the door. It makes working 40 hours a week worth it. It makes people learn a second language, or a third. It makes people teach themselves skills and stay up at night to get something right.
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes all people ever do is dream. They create scenarios in their heads and aspire for them, but when the hard work starts, they decide to get a new dream.
Ma’am, what I need you to know is that when I was a girl, I dreamed of helping people. That’s led me to volunteering in a hospital, to becoming a lifeguard, to working for newspapers and now to learning a second language.
The world is not divided between dreamers and doers, because the people that dreamed the most all started out with a dream of how they wanted it to be.
