Do you have a dream?
In grade school, I looked forward to Dr. Martin Luther King Day. I loved learning about his contributions to the Civil Rights Movement. My favorite speech of his is “I Have a Dream,” delivered on August 28, 1963.
Dr. Martin Luther King realized that his dream would not happen overnight. He knew that it would take hard work and courage.
You have to go through the process
Many people today have little to no patience in the process. We live in a microwave society, most people want things now or they will get it somewhere else. Many marketers exploit this way of thinking to gain more customers quickly.
Some people go through the process faster than others, but don’t let that stop you or make you think your dream is not within your reach.
I love the saying “haste makes waste”. Take the time to learn, listen, reflect, and make changes as necessary.
There is a process we must go through to see our dreams come true. It takes hard work and courage to pursue your dreams. The process is a part of the destination to seeing your dream come.
The process to your dream will likely be different from someone else’s process—don’t compare yourself.
Your dream is yours and no one can take it away. Sometimes you may feel weary, but you must keep moving forward and remind yourself what you are working towards.
Don’t let the experts talk you out of your dream
There are many things that my family and I have accomplished in our lives when the experts said it was impossible. After being told No several times- almost a decade ago we bought our home and moved away to a different region in our state.
My husband and I wanted a home to raise our children in a small town setting and we got what we wanted.
I’m glad Dr. Martin Luther King took action for his dream. It wasn’t easy- there was a process he had to go through. I’m grateful for his work and impact on our society.
Are you taking action toward your dream? Or, are you holding back because of the fear of the unknown.
When we moved to a different region I was afraid. I left my family and friends. It took a long time for me to get used to being far from family and friends. I had to do it afraid- like Joyce Meyer always says.
