We told the radio station that we wanted to help that child. After that, we started to think about how to collect all the money needed to buy all poor Juanito needed.

In fact, it is considered a national food and cultural sign.
Vegemite has an interesting history. More than ninety years ago, a leading Australian food technologist was given the challenge of creating a food item from a by-product of the beer manufacturing process. This by-product was developed into a pure vegetable extract spread for use on bread and toast. It has since found its way into many Australian homes.
Before World War Ⅱ it was confirmed by the British Medical Association for its medicinal benefits as a nutritionally balanced food for patients. It became very important during World War Ⅱ. As a result of the heavy demand by the armed forces, the supplies to civilians were rationed (限量) with the following message given by the government：Vegemite fights with the men up north! If you are one of those who don't need Vegemite medicinally, then thousands of the injured are asking you to deny yourself of it for the time being. After the war, with many babies born, Vegemite was confirmed as a necessary source of Vitamin B1, B2 for babies.

Once there was a man who knew he could achieve whatever he wanted. He wasn't a great man or highly educated. But, there was always the same story heard from his lips whenever he talked to you: 1 will achieve some big things in my life and I will get most of them soon. I saw him occasionally and each time he spoke like before. But he still hadn't taken one step to complete any of his dreams—no actions at all.
You can guess what happened next. As the years passed by, I went on my way to several new adventures in business, but he remained where he was. The last thing I heard of him just before I moved away was that he was ill and couldn’t get around.
Recently I spoke with an old friend about this man. Not that long ago he passed away. I asked whether he had taken action towards any of his many dreams. The sad answer was no.
When I think of this man, I wish he understood what Albert Einstein said, “The value of achievement lies m the achieving.”
This man achieved nothing of his dreams. He lacked the preparation and action. There is no achievement made through a dream unless there is dedicated movement. action steps, and perseverance to continue.
There are several points here that can make the difference between dreaming and achieving. Without a solid and detailed plan for each step, you will spend your entire lifetime dreaming. Besides, in order to accomplish a dream, action must be taken .You also need to consider through any adventure in life whatever that decision is. There are always risks associated with any decision and choice. There are absolutely no guarantees that your choice ends up being the best one.
But, you will never know where a dream will end up unless you do something. Or, you will go through life always wondering what would have happened if you had taken action and not just simply talked.
