Dreams don’t come true, They ARE true. Dreams tell you what you know.
Some years ago, a John Hopkins University study found that pregnant women who had an intuition about the sex of their baby were correct 70% of the time- but women who had a dream about the sex of their baby were correct 100% of the time!
Dreams point you toward what you need for growth, integration, and expression.
“No matter where you are from, your dreams are valid” Lupita Nyongo
This assertion holds for popular Nigerian singer and songwriter, Mayorkun, also known as the ‘Mayor of Lagos’. Sharing his inspiring story in a video he recently posted on Twitter, the musician narrated his time as a banker, a job he never liked. He resolved to pursue his passion for music and admits he has never been happier.
According to him, it is easy to lose yourself in the crowd in school, at your job, within your group of friends, or even in a relationship but we must constantly make a resolve to stay authentic and follow your innate dreams.
Dreaming is ultimately about awakening the unconscious. To ignore one’s dreams is to tear out pages from an unfolding story, he reiterates. We all want to fit in and be liked, but it is important to stay original, so we don’t get lost in the crowd. The world needs your dreams and ambition; this is why we have to dare to be ourselves.
He further recounts that during the pandemic induced lockdown, he discovered that he could edit videos through zoom calls. He tried it and the results were excellent. Not only do dreams respond to attention, but they also respond to direct requests.
This means that you do not have to wait for your dreams to appear, you can make them happen by going after them and seeing them to fruition.
Authenticity is about living in the moment, with the future in mind and confidence to stay true to oneself. An authentic person puts the people around them at ease.
Asking his fans to talk about the new things they learned during the lockdown, he encourages them to #DoYou. He shared this following the unveiling of the new MTN Pulse plans with lower calls and data rates. Pulse is all about being true to who you are and what makes you unique.
