'The future belongs to you if you believe in your dreams'. Thats how I would translate the writing on the sign pictured below. Sounds wholesome on first sight/thought. But reflecting on it for a few seconds, I'm tempted to put up my own sign, next to this butterfly decorated, peace loving sign, offering, 'The present is here, just stop dreaming.'
For the last 15 years I have been running my own one man band graphic & web-design business, with plus/minus 30 clients. Self-motivation is part of my daily routine (slog). A trait which seems to evaporate by the next morning. I understand now the difference between eternal postponing (dream on) and creating a better tomorrow (act now). I read recently a helpful article, titled, Knowledge is cool, but action is power.
