How do you face controversy?

Quote

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.

Take the first step

Quote

You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Unarmed truth and unconditional love

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality…

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Do what is right

The time is always right to do what is right.

Don’t be afraid of living

You may be 38 years old, as I happen to be. And one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid…. You refuse to do it because you want to live longer…. You’re afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you’re afraid that somebody will stab you, or shoot at you or bomb your house; so you refuse to take the stand.

Well, you may go on and live until you are 90, but you’re just as dead at 38 as you would be at 90. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Take chances, do what’s fun!

Counter with positivity

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

Something is not going so well? Adjust your mindset, counter with a positive and giving attitude. Always be open minded and think with possibilities and success in mind!

I’ve got a question for you

Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?

Ask yourself this question every once in a while.

Have faith

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Go for it!

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

You don’t have to know about risks and possible outcomes all the time. Sometimes you just go for it, you leap into it.

After all you learn how to swim in the water, not on land.
