“Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Next in the list of Jim Rohn’s principles to live by in order to leave a lasting legacy is: life is best lived in service to others.
Martin Luther King, Jr. day is a great day to be reminded of this truth.
He spent much of his life in service to others and in the end was of great service to our nation and his cause.
The quote above embodies a truth inherent in the civil rights struggle.
Everybody can be great. Regardless of skin color, religious affiliation, or any other potentially separating characteristic. Because within us all is the capacity to serve.
Make it a great day of service.
