Think big! Courage! “I can”: These are the words that will help you construct a positive future. Losing fear, embracing joy: these are the factors that will help you overcome that which holds you back from becoming all that you can be. Have a dream. You must have a dream to make a dream come true. This is the foundation of creating a successful future. But dreaming is not enough. As Ryuho Okawa teaches us in this inspiring lesson, one must build upon that dream, ever persevering, and ever setting goals to realize the dream. We are builders; we are students. We are souls; it is important to realize that we are here not just as material beings, but are pupils in a school for soul training. We are here to learn the importance of thinking positively, of leading a life of love and helping others to create happiness in this world, and of building success by having a burning desire to realize one’s dreams while recognizing that our focus must be not only on this world, but the next. Success is found in never giving up – of conquering fear with faith.
In this lecture, Master Okawa teaches up how to build a future with the characteristics that have been embraced by all successful men and women over time, while incorporating the qualities of the real self that lead to true happiness and light up the darkness of this world.
