I Have A Dream

“I have a dream, that one day our 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.”

Today in history, 47 years ago.

Why there was ever a time when anyone had to dream such a dream is almost incomprehensible.

What were people thinking when this was not part of everyday life?

Martin Luther King had the right idea. Dream impossible dreams. Great dreams. Dreams that require courageous leadership.

Humbly Serve

This is what we are called to do each day.

To humbly serve others.

We often get lost in the translation.

Why? Because we are so busy worrying about our career and our money.

Smart Or Wise?

A Matter Of Survival?
A Matter Of Survival?

Today is the first day back to school for many Central Florida children. And all across the Country, students of all ages are gearing up. Many of our friends (the same age) have college seniors.

Some have grandchildren.

We have a 4th grader.

The conversation last night revolved around the fundamental difference between being smart and being wise. Here’s the moral.

Being smart can help you understand that there are low to no-interest loans available to buy stuff. Being wise helps you understand that unless you have cash, you should wait.

Being smart tells you your parents will never know you tried to smoke a cigarette. Being wise tells you smoking is bad news, period.

How Would You Answer This?

How would you answer this if someone asked you, “What’s at the center of your life?”

I’ll wait while you think about it.

Are you bold enough to share it here, in the comments?

Not soliciting comments, just testing your conviction.

If your answer was not immediate, clear, concise and compelling, you have a huge opportunity.
