Happy MLK Day!
How many people do you know that talk about their “dreams” but are doing the same thing they were five years ago? In 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous “I Have A Dream…” speech.
The problem isn't the speech; the problem is that people in America stopped reading at the title. The REAL problem is that most people never heard or read the very first paragraph of the speech.
Here's the first paragraph of Martin Luther King, Jr's speech…” I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.”
You must remember one of the biggest takeaways from the text above.
He used the word “DEMONSTRATION.” That word closely resembles the word ACTION and MOVEMENT. Is having a dream important? Yes. But a dream without action will always remain a dream in your mind.
If you want things to change, you START with a dream, create a PLAN, and then take ACTION. How many people do you know that stop at step #1? Don't be that person.
