“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” ~Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. didn’t just have a dream, he lived it:
- At the age of 33 King was leading the civil rights movement.
- At the age of 34 King delivered the “I have a dream” speech to over 200,000 people.
- At the age of 35 King was recognized with the Nobel Peace Prize.
- And 44 years after King’s assassination his work for peace, freedom and equality still resonates.
Dr. King kept moving forward by surrounding himself with people who mentored, motivated and encouraged his philosophies.
Who keeps you moving forward?
The relationships we foster act as a critical ingredient for our dreams, actions and achievements. Keith Ferazzi has researched and written about frameworks to establish these important lifeline relationships in “Who’s got your back” and “Never eat alone”.
Surround yourself with those who encourage, provide (constructive) feedback and hold you accountable… develop these lifeline relationships and live your dream!
