Words of Wisdom

It’s almost impossible to go through an entire day without being asked many questions. Did you remember your homework? When are you going to be home? What’s the answer to question four?
Sometimes we ask ourselves questions like: Why did I do that? What should I wear? How can I get my mom to change her mind? But here’s something to consider: How often do you ask yourself truly important questions, questions that really matter to your future and to the world in which we live?
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: Life’s most urgent question is: What are you doing for others?
Dr. King asked himself that question and then lived a life committed to helping others. Part of becoming a successful human being is asking oneself these types of essential questions and then taking the time to think through the answers.
With something to think about, make it a great day. The choice is yours.
