We’ve all heard that quote I Have a Dream by Martin Luther King Jr., and all of us have our dreams, but are we all willing to do what it takes to make our dreams come true? So what does it take to make a dream come true? Here are three things everyone can do to make their dreams come true.
1. Take a Risk
Making your dreams come true will involve exposing yourself to failure and sometimes ridicule. Others may look at you and think you are not the type of person who can do this or that, they may and often will scoff. Remember when Susan Boyle appeared on stage on Britian’s Got Talent? Everyone looked at her and thought what is she doing here? She didn’t look the part then she began to sing, and jaws dropped. She took a risk and it paid off.
2. Be Confident
You have to believe your dream can come true. There will always be a few cheerleaders in your section, but for the most part people won’t encourage you. Once again Susan Boyle is the person to look at here. In the interviews they did with her before she did on stage, she stated “I’m gonna make that audience rock!” And she did!
I’m sorry to say, but making your dream come true will often take a lot of work. It may involve learning new skills. You may have to give up some fun time in the present in order to get the dream in the future. Dr. King had a dream that the country would change. He worked toward his goal, and he inspired others to dream his dream. Sadly, he died before much of his dream come true, but other individuals continued to work to make his dream happen. The benefit of all of these individuals work is that the country is a much better place.
So when you’re sitting there thinking I want this to happen, remember that making it happen is up to you.
