The sages did, and still do.

The Four Simple Steps to Success with Ease
By Samy AbulEla

Every one of us has the power within to do what we love to do for a living, and to be successful as well. There are four simple steps to achieve your dreams in life — even if you’re lazy, inexperienced, overwhelmed, or financially challenged.

1. Dream

It all begins by daring to dream. Everything ever created first started as a dream. At first, our dreams are just insubstantial bits of imagination, delicate and easily lost, but as we continue to focus on our dreams, they become more and more solid, until they eventually become clear goals, and finally become intentions.
