Hope is a waking dream much craved by people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Aristotle said, "Hope is a waking dream."

People want hope; people follow dreams.

***

Regardless, Hope stands in the shadow of the elite state of mind known as Belief. If Hope is a waking dream then Belief is the inspirational call-to-action.

Powerful leaders take us to new realities.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Powerful leaders possess the ability to bring about 'new realities'...some tremendously good, some tremendously bad.

While hindsight seems 20/20, for most people foresight is not.

So, most people find visions of 'new realities' to be unrealistic. Regardless, in powerful leaders' minds, they are visions of crystal-clear realism.

Never Give Up..You owe it to yourself...You owe it to your family...You owe it to Life.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Of course, Sir Winston Churchill comes to mind, “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” 

Churchill, singularly, inspired a nation.

But, there's more to it...

Churchill inspired himself. 

[...in support of inspiration and daily affirmations]


If you assume communication is easy, you’re dreaming alone. If you find communication is easy, you may be dreaming with others.

Shared dreams and goals, naturally, breed quality communication.

Dreams of a better future help generate a better future.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Past and future are dreams; now is a reality. All things are now; all power, all possibility, all action, is now."

British author/philosopher James Allen said that in 1903. It seems to me Allen's advice is a key to what most people refer to as 'time management'. I mean, if people pay more attention to the present and less attention to agonizing over the past and worrying about the future then they will feel less stressed...and they will feel like they have more time.

On the other hand, we should not be too harsh on dreams - only dreams of a better future generate that future. As 2 examples, Marconi proved this...so did Martin Luther King Jr.

A Vision of a Better Future – one of our most magnetic gifts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

We have all found ourselves inspired by leaders' visions of 'a better future'. Even if we did not take action and 'join the cause', we were inspired by the fact the cause existed. Such is the essence of leadership.
