As I write this blog post, I’m reflecting on the life of Dr.Martin Luther King. Every year I close my childcare business in honor of Dr.King.
Dr.King had a big Dream that I believe was A God given Dream for this world and that Dream is:
“I still have a dream, a dream deeply rooted in the American dream – one day this nation will rise up and live up to its creed, ‘We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal.” -Dr.Martin Luther King
As I read that Dream, I believe that dream is still manifesting over 50 years later. So as you can see, some dreams take years to manifest and some dreams manifest in a very short time frame.
In other words, the bigger the dream, the longer it may take to become a reality.
I can remember having a dream to have a large location that provided care for all age groups; infants, toddlers, preschoolers and schoolagers.
It took almost 10 years to get that dream location and it was worth the wait.
Today I have a dream to open a location in Atlanta, Georgia. I moved here 2 years ago and I have been looking for that perfect location. In fact, I have decided that no matter how long it takes to get that dream location, I’m going to be patient and get prepared for the dream.
With all that in mind, I want to ask you several questions: What is your dream for your business? Do you dream of opening a center? Do you dream of having multiple locations?
Whatever your dream is, I want to encourage you to do the following:
- Write down your dream
- Get prepared for the dream.
- Be patient.
- Don’t rush the process.
- Keep your dream in your heart.
- Share your dream, because what you talk about you bring about.
- Get wisdom and seek counsel as you prepare for the dream.
Keep Dreaming Big For your Child Care Business and start getting ready now!
