Motivational Talk at School Today

Basically, what I realized the most from the talk just now is that not everyone can achieve their dreams. Okay, let me repeat.. NOT EVERYONE CAN ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS. And then, BOOM. Reality hits me so bad. I was truly crushed. Like, really really crushed. I feel like crying just when the speaker said it only a few seconds after the talk began. I have a big dream, you know. A really BIG dream. My dream is to further my studies in The One Academy (TOA). Okay, so maybe you don't know what on earth is TOA, so let me explain and introduce it to you a little bit about it...

The One Academy, Malaysia (formally known as The One Academy of Communication Design) is a Malaysian arts and design academy. Located in Bandar Sunway in the state of Selangor. There is also one which is located in Jalan Anson, Penang. But the headquarter is the one in Selangor, though. (I still haven't decide which one I wanted to go yet.. ) I'm thinking of taking Diploma Programme with a course of Illustration with Comics. The image below is the requirements needed.

  • Javier Secaduras - Hollywood Film Storyboarding Expert (Blue Sky Studios)
  • Ray Kosarin - Animator, Director, Producer and Talent Recruiter (Lucasfilm)
  • and so many more...
Now you know what a big of a deal is it to me to be in this academy? My name can actually be well-known worldwide like those people from the list above!
How do you think I felt when the speaker from the motivational talk said this when I have this really really BIG dream...?
"Not everyone in this world can achieve their dreams. I'm sorry but that's the reality."
I was crushed and then I began to doubt myself. Questions like "Am I good enough?" or "Do I have what it takes?" came running through my mind. I wanted to cry so bad.

But when I listened to the talk, I realized that to achieve my dreams, I have to work as hard as I can. And when I do succeed, I should never ever ever ever forget my parents' support, help, kindness and most of all, LOVE. I shall never leave my parents behind when I succeed. And of course, always give thanks to God. I remember when I realized that TOA is a private college and I was worried that it may need a lot of money for my entry in a private college. But my Dad answered, "Don't worry lah. We'll find the money. Just trust God. He will give it." That moment I was really overwhelmed that my father actually willing to do anything for me so  that I can achieve my dreams. Goodness, this is really emotional for me. But, yeah.. I think I should apply for a scholarship. Maybe I'll apply for the Honda scholarships.

I have to work as hard as I can for the best result in my SPM! It's a fierce competition to get an entry in TOA. I hope all of you out there who have this big dream to keep dreaming! Believe! And make it happen! Don't forget to pray along the way. God bless!

1 reader's feedbacks:

  1. I don't know who this speaker is, but I really don't agree with what he said. And instead of motivating people, he is de-motivating young people to reach their dreams. Maybe he is talking about reality, but reality is EVERYTHING that God had written for us in our course in this lifetime.

    Terus percaya kepada Tuhan, dan impikan apa yang Dia impikan untuk kamu. He has BIG things for you.
