What a very nice questions.
I am a firm believer that when we desire something we do our best to fulfill the desire.
I also believe this is where vision planning and goal setting play a role. A person may have a dream or desire that might take many years to come int o fruition. Their effort to live the dream will manifest itself when their “dream comes true.”
On the other hand, many have dreams and because of circumstances and not the desire they have to accomplish the dream, the fulfillment of the dream may never happen.
Quite the philosophical question.
