“Every man can be great, because every man serve.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Opportunities. They are all around us if we look hard enough. Greatness is there too and achievable because of those opportunities. The one thing that binds these two together is the word service. We all have the opportunity to be great because we all have the opportunity to serve. That is what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr means in today’s quote. Helping our fellow man, our fellow woman. This innate ability is bestowed within each of us. It is a source of power that if we have not tapped into, I encourage you to do so right here and right now.
The daily positive impact that we could potentially have on others is exciting and will be the best kind of reward we could ever receive: an intrinsic one. One that will make us want to do it again and again to experience that good feeling of serving others. True greatness only comes from serving others.
