Last night I had a conversation with a friend about the power of a dream. He told me about how his sister and her husband brought home a little girl this week that they just adopted from Ethiopia – They have been dreaming about the adoption for the past three years.
Martin Luther King had a dream that led to a movement of equality. Steve Jobs dreamed of changing the way we view technology. Edison dreamed of the light bulb, and Lincoln dreamed he could use his influence to end slavery … Dreams matter.
Do you have a dream?
Let me remind you that having a dream is not enough. If you intend to reach it you must take a step toward it.
A new baby would never have been adopted had a step not been taken to fill out some paperwork. King Jr. had to take the first step on his march toward equality. Jobs took an early job as a technician at Atari. Edison failed over and over with his experiments, and Lincoln threw his hat in the ring for the presidency.
Do you have a dream? Dreams do come true, but only when dreamers start walking. I know a lot of people who stay stuck, dreaming, but never taking a step.
Someday you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than the things you did wrong. So, if today finds your dreams waning, a distant memory of possibilities from days
gone by, I encourage you to start moving toward that which calls your to your heart. A single step will get you closer.
Leadership Begins at Home,
What is your dream?
