1 Minute Story: Dream Your Destiny
young girl asks, "Grandmother, I'm scared. How am I going to know how
to to be an adult? How will I become wise like you, to teach my
children and grandchildren. I'm afraid I'll never be able to learn
everything I need to know, there is so much I don't understand."
Grandmother took her little hand in hers and led her to a small sapling
apple tree, no taller than she. "Look at this tiny tree. Right now it
is young, it doesn't provide much shade, and it's too young to produce
fruit. What do you think will happen to the tree over the next twenty
years?" The child replied, "It will grow into a big tree with lots of
fruit." "Ah, my child, you are already gaining wisdom. You can see
that its destiny is to grow into a mature tree. So it is the same for
you. Your destiny is to gradually grow into the wise wonderful woman
that you desire to be."
And so it is the same for our dreams.
Never think that a dream is too big or too difficult to accomplish.
Once you set your heart's desire and intend to follow a dream, you have
set your destiny upon the path of fruition. Most dreams are
accomplished gradually, one step at a time. The only fear you should
have is giving up your dreams. Dream big! Your dreams will guide your actions of today, and forge your destiny of tomorrow!
