There’s a scene in the movie Slumdog millionaire that I just can’t shake out of my head.
In it the hero recalls how he and his brother are led to believe that they’re being trained to become professional singers but in reality they were being prepared for a life on the streets as professional beggars.
After they’ve escaped, his brother explains their ‘guardian’s intentions:
“They were going to take your eyes out with a spoon!”
My first impression was to think,
how can someone do that to another human.
It’s easy to point fingers at other cultures while sitting in padded cimema seats but actually something very similar is going on all around us. It’s more subtle but no less brutal.
Each time you squish another person’s dreams you take their eyes out with a spoon.
What value is life if you can no longer see or follow the vision of your heart?
We do this to our own childen, our loved ones and even to ourselves all the time.
Are you allowing others to clip your wings?
Do you believe others when they say “Your dream’s too big” or “Who do you think you are anyway?”
Whenever you hear the words “You can’t!” run away immediately.
Maybe this person is trying to help you earn a living.
But in the long run, is this a life worth living?
It’s your life.
Never give up on your dreams.
