Do You Really Want It?
April, 2012 · By detavio
Cain’s Arcade is the “feel good” story of the year right now. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should watch and witness how the world conspires to make a 9-yr old boy’s dream come true. The story reminds me of a quote written by Paulo Cuehlo, in his book, The Alchemist, that states:
“When you really want something to happen, the whole world conspires to help you achieve it.”
What Cuehlo and Cain teach us is that, before the world will rally behind your dream, you have to prove that you really want your dream first. Not the empty “I want that Snicker’s bar” kind of want, but the type of desire and longing for something that is so deep that it produces passion, resillence and action. The type of want that forces you to give the best of your imagination to your imagination. The type of want that makes you willing to pour and pour into your dream despite having to watch the world keep passing it by.
The world is waiting to help you achieve your dream; have you let it know how much you really want it?
