Reaching your Dreams/Goals: A Parley

Reaching your Dreams/Goals: A Parley


You work your Life to make it… whatever ‘make it’ entails.

Of course, making it takes on new meaning as you get older and accumulate experiences – and have an IQ above your shoe size – to take an experience and turn them into Wisdom along the way.


How have Great People throughout the Ages achieved their goals?

How did they become Great?

Perhaps they did not become Great at all – but their Ideas & Ideals endured.

Some did have an everlasting influence on the way our Species thinks about Life.

Karl Marx for example.

He wrote about class struggle and equality. Through Experience, Intellect, Perseverance, he begot  Wisdom.

There are many examples of Humans in History that Stuck to their Guns; Stayed the Course; Endured Persecution & Ridicule; Etc… and reached those Goals & Dreams.

At times it was a long road.

At times it seemed like a waste of Time & Energy.

~Gandhi walking across India to pick up Salt defying the British Government.

~Muhammad Ali refusing  to go to Vietnam because no VietCong ever called him a Nigger.

Neither ever veered off what they believed was Righteousness.

Grind the teeth.


Set your Chin.

Forehead Forward and drive on.


Motivational words sound good. But let’s Decimate & Dissect them as I have done below.


A Quick Parley.


In the pursuit of your dreams, sacrifice is inevitable.






Boston Paul:

I disagree.

Not Always.

To reach that Dream, sometimes one might take a Different Path.
A Dream = A Goal.

Mathematically, if the goal is ’7′ there are a few roads to that goal.




No matter how hard we try –  3+1 will never equal 7.

Sacrifice Numbers, the Math does not work.

Great People throughout History reached their Goals & Dreams by forging & keeping the Path they started and doing it with Zest & Vigor.

This takes Strength.

This takes Thought.

This takes Courage.

This takes Experience.

This takes Patience.

This takes surrounding Oneself with Like-Minded People.

Above all, this takes Knowledge and Wisdom.




G:To sacrifice is does not equal to loose. Constant minor adjustments of the path to reach your goal through changes in time, enviroment, and people was the only way many so called greats reached their dreams. Without these gives and takes, the dream would be handicapped and limited. Like-Minded people to take their seats in areas they excell and comfortable with will reach out to more in a shorter period of time. All for the best!



BostonPaul: Reaching the Goal or Dream depends on the Passion, Drive and Discipline of the one(s) with the Dream/Goal.

It also depends on how we define Greatness.

Different Paths for Different Folks.

History is filled with those who achieved their Goals despite distractions, hurdles and obstacles… sacrificing only their Time, Labor and Intellect, never their Ideals.






2.5+ 4.5.

Enjoying the parley.



G. Luckily their ideals were right. Personality also plays a big part on how goals are acheived. Carnivores and herbivors also take different paths to reach a common goal in survival. Should one be extinct, the other would not survive. Greatne…ss may not be in the minds of every individual. Some may have a much smaller goal to reach. (like living an easy life and providing for the family in the process) Agreed, ideals should not be sacrificed, or there would be no meaning to the goal. Never should one loose focus on his ideals but holding on too tight may just let some good opportunities unreachable.
I like the math….
Glad there was no calculus.
Keep it simple….Keep happiness close by.
