To make Martin Luther King Jr's dream come true,
Here are some tips we can promote kindness and inclusivity in 2022.
Be Kind To Yourself: It is in our nature to learn by watching others. That's why we should show kindness to ourselves and the people around us. Seeing which people, especially children, will try to bring kindness in their nature.
Practice Again and Again: The best way to teach kindness to others is to repeat it over and over again, like social service, praising someone, donating, giving clothes, distributing food etc. Kindness should not be for any particular caste or religion but for all mankind, Irrespective of caste, religion, society, sect or organization, the spirit of kindness and inclusiveness should be equal for all.
Say Thank You To Everyone: Make them feel appreciated when you see someone being kind or helping them, Say thank you to him, welcome him. Positive behavior helps people do better things, do not keep in mind his caste, religion, sect while giving thanks or welcoming.
"We Have A Dream" These four words spoken by Martin Luther King Jr. have inspired hundreds, thousands and millions of people till date. Dr. King places great emphasis on equality, kindness, and acceptance, regardless of a person's caste, religion, or economic status. He showed the people of America that we can fight with kindness, compassion, and love instead of violence. Martin Luther King Jr. Worked for years as a minister, a citizen, an activist trying to end segregation in America. He fought against injustice, promoted peace and non-violence. Martin Luther King's words inspire those who want to stand up against injustice.
Here are some of Dr. King’s quotes regarding acceptance and kindness:
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”
“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”
“If you are seeking the highest good, I think you can find it through love.”
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”
“The time is always right to do what is right.”
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”
“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things greatly.”
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
“Not everybody can be famous, but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service… You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”
“Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal.”
“That old law about ‘an eye for an eye’ leaves everybody blind.
The time is always right to do the right thing.”
King's famous speeches, marches, and other nonviolent protests helped him win the Nobel Peace Prize for Combating Racial Inequality.
After his death, Martin Luther King Jr Day was established on 11 January to celebrate the achievements of his life. Martin Luther King Jr had a dream and this dream included acceptance and equality of all.
We can take the following six steps in 2022 to fulfill Martin Luther King Jr's dream of kindness and inclusivity.
1,Kindness: Kindness should be easy but it's so frustrating that people find it hard.
I try to make kindness and inclusivity the focus of all my interactions. One cannot create a positive environment such as kindness and inclusivity unless one breaks out of their stereotyped thinking. We sometimes meet a person who is so happy that whatever our mood may be, it changes. Similarly, if we use kindness as a transition, we can have a positive effect on everyone's behavior and attitude.
2,Be Trust: It is most important for a human being to be psychologically healthy and to live with the people around him with inclusivity and trust. Any organization can tackle uncertainty directly by promoting trust and inclusivity.
One's trust is not easily gained, but it is very easily lost. Trust is built by consistency, discussion, and transparency, So learn to trust and once you get someone's trust, try to keep it.
3,Choose All The Best: Making any kind of choice depends on your intention, you will be able to choose exactly as you intend,
that's why for choosing best your intention should be welled. Noble intentions require transparency, honesty and radical behavior. People appreciate those who are clear about their intentions and choices. So promoting kindness and inclusivity calls for noble intentions and better choices.
4,Look Within: Every man should first introspect himself. If We all have prejudice when a person becomes prejudiced then his intention and choice will not match. That's why it's important to thoroughly examine yourself and others.
Keep yourself away from prejudices and try to understand what it is with your eyes and senses. Kindness and inclusiveness will not come in us until we are free from prejudices. So look inside yourself and remove your shortcomings.
5,Be Consistent: It is an inexhaustible action and has the staying power. Every day I make relevant points for my behavior and conversation that will refine my behavior. Consistency has a profound effect on human beings.
People appreciate your clarity, honesty and kindness, but just being appreciated is not enough. Your company should have such an impact on them that they too become accustomed to high standards of behavior such as clarity, honesty, kindness, and inclusivity. So that now in 2022 and in the times to come, the name mark of diversity and ruthlessness will erase.
6,Stay Safe Let It Be Safe: Staying safe and caring for the safety of others is the key to realizing the dream of kindness and inclusivity. Since 2019, an epidemic like COVID-19 has put the whole world at risk. In such a situation, there is no need to show kindness, hugging or shaking hands. Rather, there is a need to stay safe by staying away and let others be safe too. In such a time, by getting people of every caste, religion, sect to be vaccinated. We can promote kindness and inclusivity by providing masks, sanitizers, food, etc. to everyone, whether rich or poor.
Continually doing inclusive work leads to inclusive behavior all around us. Kindness and inclusivity can be initiated by anyone, but it is more important not just to start but to maintain this attitude. This world is very big, there are people of all kinds, but there are very few people who make kindness and inclusivity an integral part of their life. We hope that those who want to make Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream come true by promoting kindness and inclusivity in 2022. They can promote kindness and inclusivity by adopting these six ways above.
