Speech from Nyanbol Makog given at the school assembly:
Today I want to talk about DREAMS because I BELIEVE THAT I am in a room right now that is full of dreamers.
Every morning you have two CHOICES: SLEEP WITH YOUR DREAMS OR WAKE UP AND CHASE THEM.
Most of us sit around and feel as though we don't have talents, don't have dreams and are not good at something. If you are not good at something, don't talk too much about how you are not good at it, but talk more about what you can do to be good at it. Learn how to be good at it!
Most of us are not living our dreams but instead living our fears. Fear is a dream killer.
Most of us are afraid of what other people think, afraid of getting hurt, afraid of what if I make mistakes?, what if it doesn't work?, what if it's hard? so afraid of many things but what you’ve got to do is step into your fears because if you want to live your dreams, you have to step into your fears first. Once you do that you will live your dreams, take action and make them come true.
I tell you this though, it's not going to be easy, it's going to be hard. Dreams are not going to always work just the way you planned them. There are going to be a lot of set backs, people are going to have opinions on your dreams, you might get hurt sometimes, you might embarrass yourself sometimes, you are not always going to be good at something and you are going to be so afraid sometimes. You might feel like giving up sometimes, but you need all these things to make you stronger and better.
What you’ve got to do is just BELIEVE because all things are possible if you believe. Don't worry about anything but instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he has done. Never ever give up on what you want, push yourself to your limits, be willing to work hard, hold on. Keep trying and things will improve and while working on your dreams you will discover something new about yourself – that you’ve got some greatness within you, that you are precious, strong, patience, humble and amazing!
Just BELIEVE AND JUST DO IT. YOU CAN DO IT!
