Stories Lived


There are dreams, ideas, and actions. Dreams tend to be sporadic. Ideas tend to lead towards something, but not always. However, actions are the true tell of how strong one’s dreams and ideas were.

Take a seemingly ordinary grandfather like Steven Dobbs for example. His grand children had a dream: to go to Disneyland anytime they wanted (everyday). Steven Dobbs pondered this and soon had an idea: to use his engineering expertise to build his own amusement park. So led to the final action: to completing Dobbsland.

Talking with Steven Dobbs, his engineering record was astonishing. It seemed like this man had built everything, but ironically his grandchildren did not quite understand how awesome his grandfather was. So, he decided to show them. To have your own Disneyland is quite the sign.

Hopefully, this video can show and potentially inspire people to use their dreams and ideas to accomplish astounding actions.
