What is your childhood dream? Have you realized it?
Many of us enthusiastically wrote in our compositions “My Ambition” that we dreamed to become pilots, some of us wished to become professional basketball players, and some aimed to become scientists, and many other exciting roles.However, the enthusiasm wore off as days gone by. How many of us still hold on to our childhood dreams when we have all grown up? After all, a dream is just a dream like they said, and the reality bites—like certain external conditions of ours which are not as good as others’, so we give in to our ordinary-selves.
However, the enthusiasm wore off as days gone by. How many of us still hold on to our childhood dreams when we have all grown up? After all, a dream is just a dream like they said, and the reality bites—like certain external conditions of ours which are not as good as others’, so we give in to our ordinary-selves.
Now, is external condition your only road block to your goal? Here are some stories that might inspire you!
Big Dreams In Small Bodies of the Northern Giants
Brazil, the “football kingdom” that produces world class football stars; and there are countless people there who love football, among them, of course are those talented ones. So, to become a “Professional Superstar Footballer” there, one has to be extraordinarily gifted on top of having a good physique.
However, there is a team there with an average height of only 1.22 meters,which is shorter than most people, but this is one of the most popular local football teams, and able to attract 30,000 audiences in every game they play. They are the famous “Northern Giants’ team—the world’s first football team that is formed entirely of dwarves.
The shortest member of the “Northern Giants’ stands at only 0.9 meters tall, but their physical conditions can never limit their dreams of becoming footballers! They might be small in size, but they are driven by powerful dreams and ambition which spur on their capabilities.

Nicol David—Malaysia’s Squash Princess
Another excellent example of external conditions breakthrough is our internationally famous “Squash Princess” Nicol David. This Penangnite was only 16 years old when she won the World Youth Cup in Belgium.
With comprehensive technique coupled with agility and speed, Nicol is famous in the international squash arena. She’s not only the “world’s youngest number one seeded player”, but also “the first Asian who won the British Open”. Nicol is much younger than many other players of the same period, and she is only 1.65 meters, but she is ranked world no. 1 and the first Asian player who has won the world title. This is an extraordinary success in the international sports arena, which is dominated by the Western countries.
Size does not matter – Just stay alert and stay fit.
“Zootopia”, a recently popular Disney animated film, has brought out an encouraging message: “Do not let a congenital condition limits you to pursue your dreams”.
Judy the rabbit, who was petite, delicate and loveable but also very alert and full of fighting spirit, worked with her charismatic partner Nick the fox, to successfully solve all difficult cases which all other police officers couldn’t.
This animation reminded us that, as long as we are determined to go after our dreams and face the challenges with a clear mind, we definitely are able to achieve our goals as compared to those who have better inborn conditions than us.

Though we might be playing just a small role in our work place, but with the correct attitude, a good physique and a clear mind, we definitely could excel in our areas of work. As the character Ong Tiam Cai said in the recent local film Ola Bola, “even if I were a little screw, I should be a useful screw”.
All your future success starts with a small step today. Your hard work today determines the path of your success in the future. Stay alert, maintain a clear mind, go forward in the right direction, and your dream destination is just down the road.
No matter how high or how big your future accomplishments may be as an athlete, a student, or a working professional, one thing that matters is whether you are willing to take the first step today. All your efforts and struggles today will determine your future success. Thus, effective mind and body coordination is important to unlock one’s potential and challenge the limits, and ultimately, realizing their dreams and goals.
