I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Great words spoken by Dr. King in 1963 during his famous I have a Dream Speech. In listening and studying this speech for years, I believe Dr. King hits on just about every one of the LIFE 8 F’s. I too have a dream that we will be able to affect a million lives with this great LIFE information. The mental fitness challenge groups are the first of many great community building tools that we will leverage to reach our goal.
Where else in the world can you and I find a group of leaders dedicated to their personal development getting together to transparently share their most precious thoughts? Tonight our challenge group had a great conversation about the importance of personal character in the life of any leader. In defining character, someone said character is your personal brand. Another said that character is not what you portray to the world, it is what is revealed when no one else is looking. Someone said that working on our character is like breathing, take one breath, and expect to have to take another soon. Someone compared the creation of character to the creation of a diamond… a lot of dirt and a lot of pressure. In the final analysis, we all agreed that the formation of strong character requires new wholesome information like the subscriptions from LIFE, and someone very wisely asked what will you drop off in order to pick up great LIFE changing information? What great pearls of wisdom were shared at your challenge Group meeting tonight?
