Yesterday I was preparing to do a couple of guest spots on Seattle’s new SmartTalk radio program, Sunrise Seattle. In celebration of Martin Luther King Day, I’d proposed that we do the segment based on “I Have a Dream.”
In preparation for the show I watched (for the twentieth time) Dr. King deliver his most renowned speech; the one that would prove to transform our nation (August 28, 1963). Once again, it transformed me.
Watching it this time, however, was quite different for me. This time I heard him say things I’d never heard before. This time I “got it” or, I should say, I “got” him. This time I was able to synthesize every syllable of his message with who he was, at the most granular level, as a human being.
What conclusion did I draw?
Martin Luther King Jr. held his dream in such a way that it had no choice but to come true. So it did. (Not all at once, of course, because most dreams unfold over a period of time).
Why is it important that you know this?
Because everything that was true of Martin Luther King, Jr. is true of you too.
This week, I’m devoting three blogs exclusively to the wisdom that was Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life.
Over the next 3 days I’m going to share exactly what he did to change the world, and how he did it. And I’m going to do it in a way that you can replicate in your own life.
How do you promote YOUR dreams? How do you hinder them from happening? I’d love to hear from you!
