Idris: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
“Haha… what? me… I think I’m a little too old for that”
Idris: “You do realise that you are still growing?”
“Hmmm… you mean… The Dream?”
Idris: “Yes, The Dream?”
“I don’t think people have enough time to dream. Real life gets in the way of dreams.”
Idris: “What if I said to you that I can make it happen… would you be up for that?”
Idris: “When we are kids we play, we think, we dream… but as an adult we slow down very quickly. No matter what stage they are in life, people shouldn’t stop dreaming. They should thrive on.”
What is your Dream?

“What if I said to you that I can make it happen… would you be up for that?” Idris Elba
What do you need to start? What is the first step? What can you do now without needing permission from anybody?
Life is not hard, it is easy. That is the problem.
Why do we stop chasing our dreams? Because it is so easy to wake up, do the minimum, eat, sleep and repeat. Meet someone, bring up kids, drift and die…
It is easy to live.
That is the curse.
It is easy to look at a dream as something far off in the future, a thing.
It is also a verb, it has to be chased. A dream is all the steps.
This is a wake up call. We are all dying, but if you are not chasing your dream, you are already dead.
I’m dying to…..
Most people didn’t know what to write. We let people off the hook with small, short term dreams “I’m dying to have a drink” “I’m dying to have more friends”
If you don’t know the answer, don’t wait until someday to answer this question. When you do figure it out, you will sleep like a kid again. You will sleep with a dream and wake up with a dream as well.
