Is Yours “The Impossible Dream”?

A few weeks ago, I shared “I Have a Dream” and  it will probably wind up being one of my most popular posts of the year. Why is that? Maybe, it’s because the majority of people that work, don’t know why they work. My son’s guest post drew a lot of attention because he has a pretty clear vision, but more importantly, he not only has a clear vision, but he doesn’t settle for something else.

Yesterday, as I was driving, I found myself singing The Impossible Dream.
(Are you done laughing?)
The truth is that I have that song in my head from time to time and I think that it’s had an impact on the way that I’ve worked and lived. Here are the lyrics.

To dream the impossible dream

To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star 

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far 

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into
Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I’ll only be true 
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest 

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
Yeah! So? Make a comment!

  1. Rick,I was surprised to hear you quoting a SONG. For someone, not passionate about music, you sure captured a great song to convey your message here. This is what I love about music. Someone has created something people can really connect with even when they may have different backgrounds. I am certainly going after a new Impossible Dream! In honor of you Rick, I have made this the song of the day for my Sound Convictions Facebook Page! Enjoy and keep livin’ the dream whatever that may be for you and your readers!
