Servant’s Servant

World-Class Clean: All Day, Every Day
World-Class Clean: All Day, Every Day

Who serves mankind as much as our trash collectors and cleaners?

To have a servant’s willingness to help others is among the noblest of qualities.

Don’t believe it. Leave your job and become a garbage collector, or a full-time toilet cleaner.

My guess is, you don’t have the guts. But if you did, consider what Martin Luther King said:

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.

I Have A Dream

He Thinks I'm God
He Thinks I'm God

Do you have a dream?  Of course you do.  Who doesn’t?

Do you know the question behind the question?

No seriously, do you?

I mean, “Do you have a dream so big, everyone considers it impossible?”

Maybe you should.

Last year, after reading Robert Kiyosaki’s bestselling book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, dreams of a different kind began to form.

And this week, I’ll share a few more highlights.  Meanwhile, there is a fairly comprehensive Rich Dad Poor Dad summary in the top banner. It’s been there for a year.

You can see a lot when you look around.

Rosa Parks Was Not, Was She?

Rosa Parks was not out to win a popularity contest.  Was she?

She also was not the first to refuse to give up her bus seat for a white man.  But thank goodness she did on December 1, 1955.  She was 42.

  • Where did her courage come from?
  • Why did she demonstrate it?
  • Did she have a plan?
  • What was she prepared to give up?
  • What did she think she’d gain?
  • Was she scared?

Rosa Parks is one of my heros, inspiring  me to use courage for the right reasons.  So today I commit to asking  the same questions.

And, by the way, it’s not a popularity contest.  Courage rarely makes you popular until years later.
