To Achieve Your Dreams
One of the best things about my trip to Egypt was the simple act of achieving my childhood dream. When I got back home from Egypt, I felt a great sense of accomplishment. I was really proud and grateful for myself and all those people that helped me achieve my dream.
Many things go into being able to achieve your dreams. The most important part is having the dream in the first place. My dream when I was younger was to visit the pyramids and study them. When I saw movies like “Indiana Jones” I knew that I loved things from our ancient past. For whatever reason, these things from our ancient past have a magical glow to them. Another person might feel the same way about a skyscraper in NYC than I feel about the Pyramids of Giza. Whatever the dream is, never fear the dream! The dream is there for a reason. We as people have dreams for a reason and that reason is to achieve our dreams! So many inventions in our modern world have started out as dreams in someone’s head. And our world has been made into a really interesting place. What I think achieving your dreams does is make the world, your world, a more interesting place to live in.
For example, I have travelled from Mexico to Peru. Then I travelled all the way to Egypt. The things I learned about in all those places made me love my life and this world more than ever before. Mostly, I learned that people are capable of outstanding feats of creation, such as pyramids and computers. This gives me hope that one day, the world will work together with no wars. Then the world will become clean and all the countries will help each other make the world even cleaner. This is future that I find in the past. When I go back into the past researching ancient civilizations, I realize that fantastic wonders can be created for our future. One of these wonders is an energy machine that doesn’t burn nuclear or coal power. This energy machine takes electricity from the air and earth. It is clean energy and 100% renewable. This energy machine I speak of is exactly what many of the pyramids around the world were!
The Great Pyramid was a power plant just like a nuclear power station! This is but one of the really cool things that I’ve learned during my travels! Another reason it is so important for me to study ancient things is because there are still many unanswered questions about our past. Many people believe that we know everything since we have computers, but actually there is still no exact answer on how the pyramids were built! So this means that there are still things to be found out! In achieving my dreams of traveling the world I have found out that the world is small, but also huge! It’s small because you might see someone you knew from another place, randomly.
When I was in Egypt I met a girl that was from the same city I live in, Olympia. When I met her I said, “Well, it’s a small world after all!” But the world is also huge! For example, I still can’t believe that if you go Egypt, you can find huge monuments that are built with huge stones a really long time ago! It seems like something from a TV show! But sure enough, it’s real. Now we can see ancient buildings drowned in the oceans from satellites. When I was in Egypt I read a story about scientists finding a super old port off the west-coast of Egypt in the Red Sea. This port had huge boats coming in and out of it, but it remained undiscovered for so long! Many pyramids still lay buried beneath centuries of sand. In this way, the world is huge.
When I begin my career as an ambassador I will try my hardest to make this world a better place. I want to continue traveling and writing. An “ambassador” must travel and write to be good. An ambassador is someone who represents a country and tries to make peace between nations. For me, no dream is too big. I truly believe that I will help to bring about world peace and free energy for the entire earth. In order to accomplish my new dreams I will need to work hard. Sometimes my dreams just come to me but most times I need to do work in order to get them. One thing that has helped me attain many of my dreams is college. My college is called The Evergreen State College and I believe this is one of the best colleges in the U.S.A. It gives students the opportunity to follow their dreams. Through Evergreen, I was able to travel the world gaining credit, and wisdom. I also now have an even better appreciation of my life and where I live because of traveling the world.
In closing, I want to say thank you to everyone reading and following my life adventure. Having you with me during this time helped me have even more direction and purpose in my life. Direction and purpose are very important when it comes to achieving your dreams. Direction is where you want to go or what you want to do. And it is what you need to do to get there. Purpose is knowing why you are doing what you are doing. So for me, I am doing my adventuring for myself and for others to be inspired to achieve their own dreams!
