More Insights from Martin Luther King Jr. – Jim Lager’s Success Secrets

My favorite quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr.:

Two of my favorite quotes from Martin Luther King, Jr. reflect the core philosophy of Texas Hose Pro and the reason for our success.

The first is about a commitment to Service:

Martin Luther King, Jr. said:

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.
You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.
You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

While the second is about striving for excellence in every task, it is also rooted in a deep commitment to service… no matter how mundane or menial a given job might seem to others.

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.

He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.’

Texas Hose Pro was launched just as America was hit with the greatest pandemic in recent history.

In Dallas, first responders and essential service providers have also had to overcome equipment failures and some of the most extreme weather conditions on record during that time.

The service philosophy of our dedicated team and the commitment of our technicians, in no small part, kept many of those essential businesses and services functioning.

I am proud of the team we have built, the good work we continue to do, and the contributions we’ll be making in 2023!

Thank you, Dr. King
