Why You Should Be and Should Not Be a Dreamer

Reading the history of Walt Disney, co-founder of The Walt Disney Company, would put you more in awe of the background of the film company. From being told he wasn't creative enough when he was a cartoonist to leaving a great legacy after his death, Walt is one of the most recognisable and inspirational people in history. When you watch a Disney film, you're not just watching a film. You're watching a manifestation. You're watching a dream that came true. It may be hard for you to look at the films as dreams but the fact is that they are indeed dreams. Dreams can come to life, you know.

Your house, your car, the company you work for, the city you live in, the recreational parks in the city, the roads - all of these are dreams come true to life.

Being in the limelight for three decades, plenty of people still do not get her. They do not get Madonna at all and what she truly represents. Perhaps a subtle wink at her critics, she sang in one of her many hit singles, Frozen, "You only see what your eyes want to see."

Madonna, the Queen of Pop, had set and had broken many records in the music industry. However, her greatest contribution lies not in music but in history and society. The underrated rebel heart that she is, Madonna is more than just the Queen of Pop. She is one of the most influential and greatest freedom fighters history has seen. 

With her entire life as a testament, what does Madonna teach us about being a freedom fighter
