You can achieve your dreams

Last Update: October 28, 2014

I want to tell you a little story that was told to me many years ago. It is a story that we can all benefit from in one way or another.

This is the story about a small village Before water mains were been used, and there was 2 rival business men supplying water to there village.

The first business man use to walk 10 miles every day to the foot of a mountain stream, were he would fill up with as much water as he could and carry it the 10 miles back. He did this journey several times a day and with each journey collected $2 from the sale of his water.

The other business man decided that he was going to build a pipe running from the foot of the mountain stream all the way to the village so that he would not have to carry water every day. He wanted to do this so that the water would come to him.

The first business man thought the second business man was wasting his time and was happy that he would be the only one selling water to the village.

But the second business man took no notice and started to lay his pipes. As the days turned into weeks and the weeks turned into months the first business man got richer and richer. Whilst the second business man spent more and more money.

But the second business man new what he was doing, he was building his pipeline little by little each and every day. Getting closer and closer to the village.

By the time a year had gone by the second business man had completed his pipeline and the village started to get all there water from him as they did not need to wait for the first business man to return with his buckets of water several times a day.

The first business man went out of business and the second business man had created a constant cash flow for himself by believing in his dreams and going for it.

So the moral of the story is if you make a plan and take it step by step, a little every day then you to can achieve your dreams.
