February represents your month of direction as you review your 2016 short and long-term goals with determination and commitment. It also represents Black History Month and the diverse thousands who had big dreams for their families, communities, and future.
It has been documented over time that dreams die when we fail to pass them on to someone we love and trust, someone who will carry them forward.
You will notice that as you begin to share your goals and dreams with others, obstacles will begin to pop up left and right as if they intentionally planned to discourage you.
Don’t worry, history shows us that hope, encouragement, failure, and disappointment are key parts to the road to success. Hope and encouragement may come and go as they are tests that represent the strength and character that holds you to your dream. Failure and disappointment represent the challenges that make you dig deep within to see your dream more clearly than ever realizing you must continue on.
The size of your dream may often represent the size of your heart and spirit. The size may include the number of persons needed to make your dream a reality. That number will include others from diverse walks of life. Besides recognizing the size of your dream, an important factor is that you will suddenly realize that we are more alike than we are different. Like those that came before you, you realize that your dream is big enough to share with all who want to make a great difference.
In closing, as you focus on the important historical figures associated with Black History month, remember there is nothing new under the sun. As you see your big dream, realize your heart, soul, and mind are big enough to make it a reality if you follow through with hope, encouragement, and commitment as you learned from your history.
I challenge you this month to think “Big” as you set a plan to achieve your goals and dream adding value to all involved. You are as Big as your dream!
