What's Your Dream?

I think it is time we start asking ourselves this question. Are we okay with the world as it stands? Are we okay with our country as it stands? Are we okay with our relationships? Are we okay with our jobs? Are we okay with how we are living our lifes? As our country reflects on the dreams Martin Luther King Jr. held for racial equality, poverty, and war, I think the time is now for us to form our own dreams for ourselves and our nation. What are your dreams? What are you going to do to accomplish those dreams? Step One: Identify the dreams you want to accomplish. Step Two: Create a plan. Step Three: Work towards your goal. Even when you encounter an obstacle keep moving forward. If you are ready to find your dreams, your first step is to read the book The Dream Manager by Matthew Kelly.
