Dies He Slowly Who Does Not Dream” is the 40th in my 'Wealth' series of original copyrighted WakeUp2Wealth Press Releases written by Tom Riach (that's me above) from my home in the sunny south of Portugal.Wake Up 2 Wealth

Wake Up 2 Wealth's Daily View Of The World!


He came from I know not where but there was he before me, a towering giant of success. I inquired of him as to how he filled his days given that his every need was met. Piercing eyes - was there a hint of amusement there? - and a calm air of self-assurance greeted my query. His vigourous response, also a question, lanced back. “Do I look alive?” He most certainly did. “And do I look happy?” Yes to that too. “Then there is your answer – I live happily.”

POWER POINT - “The secret of success is … to live happily!”

And to live happily he explained meant doing the things which he most enjoyed, 'fulfilling his wants' as he put it. Top of his list was his work. He continued to be fully active in all of his many enterprises and in a hands-on manner, “I'm no back seat boss!” he proclaimed. And second on his list was helping others less fortunate than himself. Not with pity nor with hand outs but by supplying knowledge, opportunity and resources with which the deprived could, if they chose, create their own improved circumstances. “The under privileged must be driven by the fortunate few to help themselves, otherwise they simply slip back into their unfortunate existence,” was his measured summary.

POWER POINT - “Help the under privileged not with hand outs but by supplying knowledge, opportunity and resources.”

And,” he added, “Those two activities, my work and my philanthropy, occupy fifty per cent of my waking time.” This revelation was followed by a deliberately manufactured pause, fully intended to prompt the follow up question pertaining to his use of the other, unexplained fifty per cent. So the question was dutifully asked. “Ah that time …. ,” and now he was reflective, profound. He drew a purposeful breathe, “That time is for dreaming!”

At this moment he pre-empted the next query betrayed by my involuntarily flashed, quizzical glance. “Yes, I did say dreaming. Dreams you know are the spring of my ambition, yes I continue to have things which I want to achieve. And dreams have been the source of my aspiration and the font of all my inspiration. They are everything to me, they are my very life blood. Know you not that dies he slowly who does not dream?”

POWER POINT - “Dreams are the spring of ambition, the source of aspiration and the font of inspiration. Dies he slowly who does not dream.”

We wither and fade away without dreams because bereft of imagination we are nothing … not me and neither you.”

Then he was gone. Had he been himself but a dream? Not so. For there where he had purposefully placed it and caressing my minds eye was the dream of a glorious dawn bathing my being in towering success and a life lived happily.

I live and work in the sunny south of Portugal. Need I say more? This is my 'office'!
