I have a Dream ..

On the 28th August 1963, Martin Luther King Jr, delivered what has become one of the speeches that defined the 20th Century. Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, speaking to over 200000 civil rights campaigners, King spoke the words which conveyed the thoughts and feeling of millions of people not just in America but around the world, and words I believe should resonate in the hearts and minds of every person today!

I have a dream King said. I have a dream. He repeated.

Yes, so do I! Do you?

But the thing that inspires me more than the words, I have a dream, is the fact that Martin Luther King took actions appropriate to making his dream a reality. He marched when he need to. He spoke when he had to. He demonstrated and supported others when the time was right to do so.

Martin Luther Kings dream was not wishful thinking nor was it a pipe dream. It was a dream that he was determined to see become a fact.

You realize (caution, side tracking!) just when you think you're totally blind to ads you see a banner ad which mysteriously grabs your attention. Just noticed a great ad for a top-notch residential mortgage agent in Hamilton. I'm thinking they ought to get the reference 🙂 Okay, my apologies ladies and gentlemen, back to it.

His dream was something that kept him awake at night. Caused him to get out of bed in the morning. Led him to do those things that we're necessary every day to move himself closer to the realisation of that dream.

The question, therefore, is not only whether you have a dream, but whether you have a dream that inspires you to take the actions necessary every day to make that dream a fact?

Does your dream keep you awake at night? Is it real and big enough to get you out of bed in the morning and keep you going even when the road seems all uphill?

You see, for Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Winston Churchill and so many other great men and women who have had an impact in their world, life was not always smooth sailing and easy going. Nelson Mandela was jailed for 27 years. Winston Churchill constantly suffered ridicule for presumed failures and was repeatedly mocked by his peers and Martin Luther King was under constant surveillance by the FBI, was arrested and subjected to almost daily intimidation.

There is no smooth road for those with a dream and a passion to see that dream become a reality. Ups and downs are part of the package deal.

I have a dream. Do you?

Quote for the day: You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.

Need to give appropriate credit with regard to this posting partly to I actually had the idea for this from I little piece I read on their website.
