Don’t Defer Your Dream

follow_your_dreams

What happens to a dream deferred? You have a dream, my friends. Each of you has a dream. The question behind the question? ‘Will you defer your dream?’ I adjure you: DON’T! Don’t defer it.

Don’t defer it by allowing alien concerns and interests to clutter up your mind. Don’t defer it by failing to reckon with the cost incurred by a dream deferred. Don’t defer it by allowing the static of distractions and competing demands to becloud your sense of direction.

Don’t defer your dream on account of small people who try to minimize your ambitions and devalue your aspirations. Don’t defer it by allowing the paralyzing and corrosive effect of self-blame, guilt and shame to impede your forward momentum. Don’t defer it by feeding the shadow self- the unauthentic and distorted narrative of self that strives to extinguish the positive light of self-love.

Finally, don’t defer your dream by failing to live resolutely and with passion.

Friends, don’t defer your dream.
