40 Years to Reality

Actually seeing the realization of a dream is an incredibly powerful experience.

For decades I’ve dreamed that the fraternity I enjoyed for 40 years would have a home close to the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

At about 5:30 on Saturday afternoon, as I sat on the deck of the new fraternity house—a block from campus, a block from downtown Chapel Hill, and surrounded by three sorority houses—I watched the young guys who are the current members enjoying an after-game party with their girlfriends, families and friends. Music and the sounds of football games on TV floated out the doors and surrounded alumni who were renewing friendships.

A friend pointed out that I should take the time to enjoy the experience before moving on to new challenges. They were right.

Look around you. EVERYTHING you see that is man-made is the manifestation of an idea someone had. EV-ER-Y-THING!

If there is a dream you want to see become a reality you must constantly hold it in front of you and do something every day to make it a reality.

There will come a day when you, too, are able to enjoy watching the celebration party.
