Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream and he declared it. He said “I have a dream” 8 times in his iconic speech on August 28, 1963 and followed those words up with declarations that eventually became truths. He realized the power of declaring his dream to millions and those dreams were shared by millions. He shouted out his dream to make it come true [themecolor]and that’s what I am about to do in the video below. [/themecolor]
In this video, I OUT my dream. It is no longer hidden in my closet like a dress I am ashamed of.
By telling you my dream [themecolor]out loud,[/themecolor] I have transformed it, changed it – it has [themecolor]shifted[/themecolor]. It is no longer just a little dream, it is now a PROMISE. It is now a verbal promise to myself, to the universe and to you who watched the video. Now that it is out, it is my job to make this dream come true, to achieve this goal.
Now, my request and challenge for you!
What is your dream? What is that thing that makes you SO excited that your heart nervously skips a beat? Post it in the comments below!
If you don’t know what your big dream is yet, take a deep breath, close your eyes and say to yourself “I want to know what my biggest dream is!” and wait for the answer to rise up. It might jump up, or it might rise after a few hours or even days. As SOON as you have it, tweet it out (don’t forget to tag me @rituashrafi) or post it on Facebook (tag me there too! so I can see it and cheer you on for it).
REMEMBER, your dream wont become a reality unless you acknowledge it, say it out loud (at the least to yourself) and then let the universe help you to make it come true. So out your dream right now!
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
