DREAMS DO COME TRUE—Just ask Josh Krajcik.
Ever wondered what the appeal is of all the so-called reality shows, especially the talent shows. The X Factor, American Idol, America’s Got Talent, and on and on. Sure they’re fun to watch and you get to see some great talent—and some not so great.
But that’s not the appeal of the shows. At least, not in my opinion. We watch those shows because we love to see dreams come true. If it can happen for them, it might just happen for me.
Right? Of course, there’s a difference between them and us couch potatoes watching them.
We’re sitting and watching their dreams come true while they are busy working to make their dreams come true.
What about you? What’s your dream? And what are you doing to make it come true?
I can hear you right now. That won’t happen for me. I’m just a ___________fill in the blank with a job from ______________________ fill in the blank with a small town.
Here’s what Josh would have said a few months ago: I’m just a burrito maker from Shreve, Ohio. And now look at him. He’s competing for a 5 million dollar recording contract and win or lose—he’s got his dream. To sing for a living.
Josh grew up in the same town I live in. I work at the elementary school he attended. I graduated from Triway—the same school he graduated from. (You’ll see it on the X Factor tonight.) My step-son went to school with Josh. So, you can imagine there’s a lot of excitement here in Wayne County, Ohio for Josh right now.
But again, I ask what’s your dream and what are you doing about it?
My dream is to be a writer. Almost every day, I sit at my computer and write my stories. I have four books published and my fifth is about to be released. It takes time away from other things I should be doing—like cleaning my house. But dreams don’t just happen. It takes hard work , dedication, and never giving up. I may never have the same fame as Josh, but I can say dreams do come true.
