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 dreamTo fight the unbeatable foeTo bear with unbearable sorrowTo run where the brave dare not goTo right the unrightable wrongTo love pure and chaste from afarTo try when your arms are too wearyTo reach the unreachable starThis is my questTo follow that starNo matter how hopelessNo matter how farTo fight for the rightWithout question or pauseTo be willing to march intoHell
For a heavenly causeAnd I know if I’ll only be trueTo this glorious questThat my heart will lie peaceful and calmWhen I’m laid to my restAnd the world will be better for thisThat one man, scorned and covered with scarsStill strove with his last ounce of courageTo reach the unreachable star
Yeah! So? Make a comment!

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!
