Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech was more than just a speech—it was an iconic, transformational moment in human history. A speech that’s permanently embedded in our minds and hearts.
But here’s something you might not know:
Dr. King didn’t write that speech all by himself.
As reported in NY Magazine, “The first draft was written by his advisers Stanley Levison and Clarence Jones, and the final speech included input from many others.”
Also, “The original draft was entitled ‘Normalcy – Never Again’ and didn’t contain any references to King’s dreams.”
We’re sharing this historical factoid because it reinforces an important lesson that many of us tend to forget:
Great things are never achieved alone.
Whether you’re Beyoncé, or Michelle Obama, or Dr. King, or a new college graduate searching for a great job, or a mom who’s dreaming about starting an online business, working in isolation will only carry you so far.
You need a team. You need a village. You need input from others. Your work will become stronger—and you’ll achieve your goals faster—if you’re willing to collaborate.
