How many opportunities have you created to help you reach you dreams?

Dr. King had a dream and a plan. Despite several obstacles, he used his speech at Lincoln’s memorial as an opportunity to deliver a message that ultimately earned him that dream. His dream was to end all forms of inequality and discrimination. But most important, he spoke up.

Inspired by the life of Martin Luther King, here are certain points to heed:

1. Be Bold

The theme for Lincoln’s Memorial on the 28th of august 1963 was “Job and Freedom”. Martin Luther spoke passionately in front of millions of Americans, and his words have changed the world.

2. Persuade without Violence

Violence should never be an option. In other words, be ethical. Martin Luther persuaded millions of Americans without violence. So can we, with the right commitment, hard work, and perseverance.

3. Inspire

Showcase your goals/dreams as much as possible. Passion and competence will usually draw support. And remember to keep going no matter what.
