More Than Just a Dream

Every dream unrealized is like a masterpiece never painted, a hit song never sung, a great book never written. Every work of art began as a sketch or a dab of paint on a canvas. Every song started out as a single note. Every book originated from a single thought jotted down on a page.

Every dream realized began with a step of faith, a single act of courage. Make today the day you step into greatness. It only takes a single act of courage to take that first step of faith.
