Hmmm… Dreamers and Achievers

There are dreamers and there are achievers. The difference between the two is action. As soon as I read this bit of wisdom from a fortune cookie, the song High Hopes by J. Van Heusen and, S. Cahn came to mind. The description of animals doing seemingly unattainable feats is fanciful yet thought-provoking. What a wild imagination. See in your mind’s eye an insect ranging from 0.030-2.0 inches in length fantasizing about pulling down a 144-foot high rubber tree all by itself. Yet, there was more to that ant than imagination. Hmmm… Something more kept that creative node-like crawler from being a lazy bones. (Proverbs 13:4) That something more was courage, motivating him to be a go-getter. Courage fueled his optimism making it possible to focus on his desired goal. (Philippians 3:14)
