Outlasting Continual Setbacks™ (blog and video link)
|October 18, 2012||Posted by Assegid under Events, Success, Vision||
We are wired to envision and dream. That is in our DNA. Without vision, we perish. If not literally, emotionally, and spiritually. The paradox is that every worthy dream demands us to pay its due. There is no a free ride.
If you are a dreamer, you better be immunized to withstand challenges that come on your way to resist the actualization of your dream. You should know ahead of time that if the vision you conceived is a true one and its fruition serves not only you but also others, you will definitely face setbacks. The challenge is that many of us are tempted to give up on our dreams when these setbacks become continual.
Yesterday- Wednesday October 17 2012, I shared the life changing lessons I learned from pursuing my dream and facing upsets and setbacks before I realized my dream to serve students of Addis Ababa University, the largest university in his country to members of Silver Spring Toastmasters.
Though the realization of my dream took me more than three years, I finally outlasted these continual setbacks and actualized my youth-hood dream. Most importantly, I learned life transforming insights at the early stage of my life, which I have been using since then to outlast continual setbacks that have come on my way and tried to deter me from witnessing the fruition of my dreams.
In this 10 minutes motivational speech (which I have taken from my 30 – 45 minutes speech under the same title), I also used inspirational quotes from great individuals who themselves outlasted setbacks, and I also shared the story of Joseph from ancient history who saw a dream when he was a little lad and how he experienced setback after setback, betrayal after betrayal but since he outlasted each one of them and patiently waited for his redemption, he finally witnessed the realization of his childhood dream, rescued his family, Egyptian (the then superpower nation), and probably the whole world from a pending threat that could have wiped out the human race.
