It takes spirit of faith for an impossibility to metamorphose into a possibility. It takes spirit of faith to acknowledge/believe in the existence/reality of the invisible i.e. God almighty. Also, it takes spirit of faith to believe undoubtedly that no mountain/obstacle is insurmountable. Likewise, it takes spirit of faith to acknowledge/believe that with God/time no goal/target/vision/aspiration/dream is unattainable/unachievable. Moreover, it takes the same spirit of faith to profess positivity even when negativity is imminent. Besides, it takes spirit of faith to live all through difficulty/hardship. Above all, whoever that bears the spirit of faith in him/her can't/won't say that he/she is done for/finished no matter his/her ordeal/predicament. In fact, spirit of faith does a lot in any life that it inhabits. So, if you lack it (spirit of faith) dare to quest/ask for it from God and do portray it outrightly when he (God) eventually endows you with it i.e. spirit of faith.
Dreaming big is advisable and encouraging too. But mind you, in order to make your dream a reality. You have to pull your weight. That is to say, endeavour to do what you ought to do and when you ought to do it. Because, doing just that will speedily metamorphose your dreams into realities. -Emeasoba George
Faith is the only virtue that makes/will make what you hope for a reality. Therefore, have/portray a living faith in order to metamorphose your hopes into realities.

La métamorphose est un élément immanent et l'un des processus les plus profondes de la vie, à mon humble avis. Nous transformons en permanence dans de meilleures versions de nous-mêmes, comme la chenille au beau papillon. La métamorphose continue tout au long de notre voyage de la vie, puis étend de génération en générations à venir encore à venir. Il ya un élément de l'élégance et de la beauté dans le fait que nous avons tous évoluer en permanence, et métaphoriquement tendance à se transformer, à de meilleurs et de belles versions de nous-mêmes, comme des papillons avec de la terre que nos Chrysalide.
