The Purple Cow

Don't kill people's dreams.

The world isn’t as encouraging as you might imagine. 

A hell lot of people are struggling hard to realize their dreams and to find bliss in them. Some get a chance, the others are still working it out.

In my honest opinion, the world needs more believers. More enablers. More mentors. More patrons. More optimists. 

In business terms, the demand clearly outweighs the limited supply of positive energy around us. 

That’s why perhaps you will find for every 10 teenagers, only 1 is focused. For every 10 citizens, only 1 stands by the nation. For every 10 businesses, only 1 looks beyond profit margins. For every 10 adults, only 1 thinks about charity. 

Do the world a small favor. No, I’m not asking for your dollars. You can keep them with you.(and take them after your death if that’s possible)

But atleast, don’t kill people’s dreams. It could be your friend, your sibling, your co-worker, your employee or may be your child. But dreams are as delicate as water bubbles. For if your evil sarcasm crosses the limits, it hurts. It hurts the dreamer, and the world in the long run.

Like the iconic Irish poet W.B.Yeats pleads here: TREAD SOFTLY.

“I would spread the cloths under your feet: 

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
