Metaphor (met’-a-phor): A comparison made by referring to one thing as another.
Your hope is a blindfold keeping you from seeing what’s actually possible. Your hope for wealth and fame can’t be realized by hoping. You must have a plan, and the means, and the opportunity and much, much more. Take off the blindfold and do something.
