“I have a dream . . .”
Monday is a National Holiday to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Who, on August 28, 1963, stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and delivered his iconic speech, ‘I have a Dream.’
I can only imagine what it must have been like to stand in that crowd of over 250,000 and hear those words of inspiration. I am sure I would have cried with emotion.
Tomorrow, January 19th will be the 3rd Women’s March held in cities all over the country. They too have a dream.
A dream that Women of all ages and race will be treated as equal to men, in work, in pay and in respect.
I too have a dream.
I dream of the day that a real estate transaction will be 100% transparent.
I dream of a time when unethical real estate agents are removed from the industry and are no longer allowed to prey on unsuspecting clients.
In a recent Seth Godin blog, he wrote about “How to be Honorable.”
“Honorable men (at least that’s what they called themselves) used to settle their disputes with dueling pistols.
Honorable women used to bind their feet and shame others that didn’t.
Honorable humans used to own slaves.
“Honorable” has always been measured against the current culture, not an absolute of what we’re capable of.
Over time, then, as the culture changes, what used to be honorable becomes dishonorable.
Sticking with it because it’s always been that way is truly a lousy reason to persist in a behavior that causes harm.”
I have a dream that the real estate industry will be the honorable profession it could and should be.
It will take more than a dream, but it’s a start.
Dare to dream.
