…And the dreams and values that King stood for
that we mustn’t forget.
Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream Speech“ on August 28, 1963 from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in front of 250,000 civil rights supporters . During the opening of his speech, King made a reference to the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed millions of slaves in 1863, and said, “one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free.” It has been a little more than fifty years since then and what I challenge you to do as you read the following is compare King’s vision for the future with the world as you know it today.
“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.” ~ Buddha
“What I’ve experienced is that I can’t know the future. I can’t know if anything that I do will change what happens tomorrow. I can’t know with certainty, but what I do know is if I do nothing, nothing will change.” ~ James Orbinski
A year from now you will wish you had started today.
“You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.” ~ Zig Ziglar
“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can’t find them, make them. ” ~ George Bernard Shaw
Every accomplishment began with a decision to try.
Stop waiting for things to happen.
Go out and make them happen.
“The ONLY thing leaders have in common is the shared decision to lead.” ~ Seth Godin, Tribes
“Initiating is really and truly difficult, and that’s what leaders do. They see something others are ignoring and they jump on it.” ~ Seth Godin, Tribes
“The one path that never works is the most common one: doing nothing at all.” ~ Seth Godin, Tribes
”The wealthiest places on Earth are cemeteries. The dead lying in those graves had dreams and desires that will never be fulfilled, businesses that weren’t started and relationships that never were formed. It is up to us not to bury that potential we have.” – Bill Rancic
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” ~ Dale Carnegie
