"My dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, my goals are impossible. All are of no value unless they are followed by action."
The inspirational message for the self employed from this quote is:
By saying that my dreams are worthless, my plans are dust, my goals are impossible, Og Mandino is reminding us that whilst we have to have dreams, plans and goals for our lives, that these are all worthless unless we act on these dreams, plans and goals. No plans or goals can ever be achieved if they are not preceded by action. Your plans are not going to realise themselves and your goals will not be reached without you first putting in the hard work. Success does not just happen overnight. It must be worked for.
