“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
Today we honor and celebrate Martin Luther King Jr., so it only seemed appropriate to pull a quote from his archives. As one of history’s greatest influencers, this quote from 1960, that King spoke of at the Spelman college rally is still relevant. I honestly love this quote because it is what I personally stand for in my day to day life; to keep moving forward.
The consistent component of life is that it is so unpredictable. Unforeseen circumstances are inevitable, but rather than to be thrown off course by something that you cannot control, find a way to continue on, at whatever pace you can. With the mindset of continuously pushing yourself forward, despite any hardships that you may encounter, you will eventually realize that you are able to do anything you set your mind to and consistently work towards. The other factors simply won’t matter with the right motivated mindset.
