What is your dream? What do you believe in so strongly that you’re willing to take a stand and voice your thoughts against the popular opinion? Which of your dreams are you truly ready to make a reality?
Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi: a few of the revered who stood for what they believed, and created a path for better lives for millions of others.
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
I don’t believe Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream has yet been fulfilled. But, I do believe it has opened our eyes on a global scale. We recognize oppression perhaps based on the color of skin, perhaps on a religious symbol, not only in our own country, but across the world.
Paths created by those who have acted on their dreams is how we recognize the name Malala Yousafzai.
So, what’s your dream?
When do we take the visions in our mind and apply the blood, sweat, and tears necessary to make them a reality?
Whether it’s competing in the Olympics, saving the black rhino, or ending world hunger, it begins with one step.
Maybe you’re seeking better school lunches, or dream of equality in education…how can you make these a reality?
Are there obstacles to overcome? Absolutely.
Are there tiny voices of doubt? Certainly.
But what’s a life lived without a dream?
Even if the ultimate doesn’t come to fruition, what will you learn through the journey along the way?
When will you put action behind your dream?
