Today is a perfect day, as we celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, to think about the dreams we have for ourselves, our families and our businesses. Dr. King was a true leader, with honor and courage, who believed that anyone, no matter their heritage, their political beliefs, or their skin color, has the right to be free from oppression and that everyone should have the same opportunity for success.
He believed in the Constitution of the United States and in the words of the Preamble that begin the document:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Dr. King dreamed big dreams; dreams so big that they changed the course of history in the U.S.; dreams so big they put his safety at risk every day; dreams so big they finally cost him his life.
But the dreams of MLK were so powerful they changed the way all businesses operate many decades after his death. Because of his foresight and courage, today, as you go about building your business, you don’t give a thought about the skin color of a potential client. You work to protect every family who requests our products; you welcome on to your team men and women from all backgrounds, faiths, and skin colors.
The question you should ask yourself today is: are your dreams big enough? Are you really stretching yourself to accomplish your goals and dreams with National Agents Alliance? Are you comfortable with the status quo, or could you really dream for some outrageous outcomes? Do you have the courage to think way “outside the box” or do you worry about what other people will think?
Take some time today to reflect on and remember Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. Use his memory today as inspiration to strive for more, to knock down any barriers in your path, to eliminate all excuses, and reach for the stars! Today there is unlimited opportunity for anyone who is willing to go for it with National Agents Alliance. So dream. Dream big. Just do it!
