Dream Big – Dream Gigantic

Dream Big - Dream Gigantic

Dream Big

 

Change. Some people embrace it. Others run from it.

There’s not a person alive who wouldn’t have a better life if they were willing to change something.

More productivity. More peace. More joy. More friendships. More hope. More stability. More wisdom. More confidence. More security.

Less fear. Less trouble. Less loneliness. Less trauma. Less despair. Less confusion. Less doubt. Less arrogance. Less aggression.

How do we get started? Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose life and legacy we celebrate in America today, believed a dream was essential. He was right.

In 1968, in The Trumpet of Conscience, he wrote: “If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you to go on in spite of all.  And so today I still have a dream.”

What do you need to be dreaming? Not what could you, can you, might you, or do you want to dream.  No, what do you NEED to be dreaming?

I agree with Martin Luther King, Jr. Dreaming results in:

vitality so life keeps moving,

courage to be,

and the quality that allows you to go on no matter what else is happening.

Dream Gigantic

Dream. Dream big. Dream large. Dream gigantic.

In Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech delivered on the steps at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963, he proclaimed, “I have a dream” 8 times. He was serious. Some of us need to get serious.

He also twice declared, “We refuse to believe” and five times stated, “We cannot be satisfied. Four times he stated “We must” and three times he emphasized, “Now is the time.”

Like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we need to know what we believe and what we need. We need to know what misbeliefs and complacency will get in our way and we need to “fight” against them.

Do you want to give a great gift to children you know? Help them figure out how to dream well. Support them.
