Everyone who ever walked this earth that changed it, shook it, and influenced it had something peculiar about them. It was that these people were crazy enough to believe that they could bring alterations to the status quo. Whether or not they lived that long, their legacies remain even years after their deaths.
I am just like anyone, inspired by all the greats such as Albert Einstein, Bruce Lee, Martin Luther King Jr., Oprah Winfrey… nvm not her. Mother Theresa, yeah I love that lady. I don’t suspect that any of these folks were looking for a platform. They just walked, talked and breathed everything they were about so when it was game time, they changed it by speaking forth words that were cultivated by a life of practice and discipline, and perseverance.
I’m sure there were days when MLK wanted to break this non-violent protest shindig and punch someone square in the mouth, but no. He had an agenda, and a dream which had to be fulfilled.
Like these globe-shifters I’ve always said I want to change the world and who knows, I just might but here’s a promise. I’ll give myself fully and wholly to this cause even unto death. And I may throw excuses out like, “no, I’m not wise enough, strong enough, good enough.” But those are only lies that will hinder me from my destiny. It begins with a bold knowledge that what is inside of me has the power to influence a generation, that my words may one day shape the state of the current culture and its behaviors, and that my dreams are even greater than I am.
