Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge (#2)

So I hope you guys loved the first quote and at least gained something from it.

Rules of the challenge (as usual):

  • Three quotes for three days.
  • Three nominees each day (no repetition).
  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Inform the nominees.

Now on to the second quote of this challenge:

 If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough. – Ellen Johnson Sirleaf

Origin of the Quote:

This quote was culled from the commencement speech Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (the 24th Liberian President, the world’s first elected female black president and  Africa’s first elected head of state) made at her alma mater (Harvard University ), which coincided with the 375th Anniversary of the University.

The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them. If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough. If you start off with a small dream, you may not have much left when it is fulfilled because along the way, life will task your dreams and make demands on you.

What It Means:

I believe the message this quote brings is quite easy to understand. Dream big and work towards it. 

Irrespective of what life passes to you, don’t be afraid to want something bigger and better. Don’t let your will to soar dwindle just because you haven’t achieved anything yet. Your struggles only make you a better, prudent person. Your experiences makes you wiser and your success,  you fashion out creative ways to even better things (all these with the help of God). Hardwork, Prayers, Perseverance and Persistence would go a long way in helping you work towards that monumental dream.

Dream big and Go for it!!!


    I’m sorry this was a little behind schedule. Do bear with “her”.

    And the game continues…
