In our last post we talked about how the Dream Statement captures your hopes for what the world will look like once your idea reaches its fullest potential. This is where you get to dream big!
Perhaps some of the most infamous dream statements were made by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. If you think about his words, you’ll notice that his dream statements still have not been fully accomplished, but there has been progress. They continue to inspire others to work to see his dream become a reality.
Capturing your dream statement will allow you to hold on to the big vision of what your idea will accomplish and is an essential first step in guiding you and communicating your dream with others. When thinking about dream statements, big is good! Now is NOT the time to think about how or when your dream will become a reality.
At FLDWRK our dream statement is, “One day, all cities will be full of organizations that are forces for the good of all people.”
Here are some examples of big, bold, audacious dream statements.
- “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed - we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.”
- “I dream of living in a world where all children have a family.”
- “One day, all people in the world will have access to clean water.”
- “I dream of a world where slavery no longer exists and all people are free.”
Create YOUR Dream Statement
Grab a journal, a piece of paper, or even the back of a napkin and finish this sentence, “I dream to live in a world where…” or “One day…”
What is your dream? Did you write it down? That’s all. Bravo! Now you are one step closer to seeing that dream become a reality.
