“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”

— Henry David Thoreau

“I couldn’t wait for success, so I went ahead without it.”

— Jonathan Winters

“Plant the seed of desire in your mind and it forms a nucleus with power to attract to itself everything needed for its fulfillment.”

— Robert Collier

The difference between a passing fancy and an exciting reality is belief. Some of the strangest, most far-fetched ideas have become a reality through belief where almost everyone prior to the reality thought it was impossible or at best improbable.

Some of these things are:

  • Electricity
  • Refrigeration
  • Air Conditioners
  • Vacuum Cleaners
  • Automobiles
  • Power tools
  • Pre-fabricated Housing
  • Camping Trailers
  • Steel Reinforced Concrete
  • Computers
  • The Internet
  • The Typewriter
  • Adding Machines
  • Electronic Calculators
  • The Transistor
  • The Stereo
  • The Telephone
  • The Phonograph
  • CD’s
  • DVD’s
  • Blue-Ray
  • Plywood
  • Plastic
  • Nylon, Rayon & Other Man-Made Fabric
  • Modems
  • Movies
  • Video Games
  • Frozen Food
  • Soft Drinks
  • Tonka Toys
  • Bulldozers
  • LED
  • Radio
  • Television
  • Electric Guitars
  • Speakers
  • Treadmills
  • Electric Lights
  • All Manner Of Electric Appliances
  • Pickup Trucks
  • Balloon Tires
  • Vick’s VapoRub
  • Aspirin
  • CAT Scans
  • Lasers

These are just what I could come up with in about 5 minutes, and I’ve barely scratched the surface. Can you imagine living in the 16th century telling someone about the CD player? Or even plywood? Bizarre. They might want to hurt you. Or how about even a short time ago, like say. . . 1969 when we landed a man on the moon to think of personal computers. They didn’t even exist then. I bought my first computer in about 1984 and it was an Apple II+ with 64k memory. That is laughable now. But then, it was all the rage. Just to think of computers alone and how far they have come in less than 25 years is mind-boggling.

All of these things would have been severely criticized as being passing fancies at best and heresy at worst. Certainly, the vast majority of the world would have laughed at you for even mentioning such fancies.

The list goes to show that you can indeed build castles in the air and put foundations under them. It is not for the faint of heart. It is for the world of dreamers.

Are you a dreamer?
