To live your dream

09 June 2013, 14:16

On Friday morning I heard a very interesting radio discussion on Living a Dream -  when the initial dream is shattered, dead, unfulfilled not viable or whatever. There must be a new dream, fresh approach and importantly – there must be someone strong with or supporting you Living that Dream. In the unknown environment of living a new dream one needs support.

Are we in SA not focussing too much on the old dream – are we not managing our future by relying on the old dream of a revolution (some political parties still refer to themselves as a revolutionary party whilst other still follow segregation and white rule). It sounds as if we have a new dream – a new democracy but the ingredients of becoming the true democracy still rely of the revolutionary concepts and talk. It is like baking that fresh bread from a new recipe with the yeast and dough from 1994. The recipe is fresh with the objective of a different bread, but the ingredients would not allow this bread to rise to the expectations. Labour unrest, strikes and militancy are typical examples of the past – defenced by saying that in a democracy people must strike?

It is not only the dream of government that is not always a fresh dream, our business dreams are sometimes also old dreams with nothing fresh to it – the old saying will always prevail: “if you want to do business today, the way you have done it yesterday you would not be in business tomorrow”   Yes, many a business practice will never change but it is required to bring about change in practices that can change – have a new business dream, live that dream?

Can business leaders whom have reached their “sell by date” actually Live a New Dream for their business? I doubt. We first need to extend the sell by date of the business leaders and then focus on the new dream. We need to give the business leader support or the leader has to create his own support for his new dream. Be careful – the sell by date one can do something about but when the leader reach his expiry date, there is a problem difficult to fix.

Let us all Live New Dreams, have strength to get there and stop focusing on the negatives of the past in achieving the dream.
