You're only destined to become what you decide to be. sounds simple enough, but with that decision is the recognition that we have the light and the power on the inside of us to be everything God says we are.
As we honor Dr. Martin Luther King's life on this particular day that has been set aside. We should realize we don't have to be a phenomenal amazing public figure or an amazing super hero with a day honoring our name, to be of service and achieve our purpose, just doing the small things we're able to do is what makes us extraordinary. Dr. King left us motivational words that we can use everyday to be of service to the world and fulfill our highest calling.
- Step out on faith:
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
- Never give up:
“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.”
- Hard work pays off:
“Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle.”
- Be resolute:
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
- Stand up for justice above all:
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
- Keep your head up:
“Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.”
- Be dedicated to service:
"Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’"
- Be gracious with yourself and others:
“Forgiveness is not an occasional act. It is a permanent attitude.”
- Stay strong, and keep the faith:
“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.”
- Keep God first at all times:
“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”
