Although she was impressed by each one, there was something about Carver that was special.“It was his spirit,” she said. “He could have left that tiny lab at Tuskegee Institute where he worked and probably become a rich man but money didn’t mean anything to him. It was what he could do for mankind that mattered most.”Carver developed alternative crops to cotton including peanuts, soybeans and sweet potatoes. He is credited for helping save the South. Early in the 20th century, the boll weevil wiped out the cotton crop and Carver encouraged farmers to plant peanuts as an alternative crop.

He also said that you should not reach up to the rich or down to the poor. You should be too brave to lie and too generous to cheat. That’s a great list to live by.”Casey said Carver has inspired her to live by the list and be more in harmony with giving, with others and the hereafter.It is her hope that others will be inspired by the portrait of Carver, an Alabama icon, and do as he said, “Take your share of the world and let others take theirs.” Artist Mary Ann Casey donated a portrait of George Washington Carver to the Brundidge Historical Society on Wednesday.

4 ways to make yourself more reliable

first_img 36SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com. John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details It’s nice to be trusted. When you’re a reliable person, you become the person people depend on. Whether friends or coworkers, you want to be able to count on the people in your life. Here are four ways you can be seen as more reliable.Keep your word: When you make a promise, you should come through. Being reliable doesn’t mean you have to say ‘yes’ all the time. There comes a point when you can overcommit, so it’s fine to say ‘no’ when you don’t feel like you’re up for it. Just make sure, if you say you’re going to do something, you get the job done.Hold yourself accountable: Nobody’s perfect. Every once in a while, we all mess up. The key to screwing up is to admit that it happened. Accountability makes you appear trustworthy, and as long as it’s not happening all the time, and you’re not blaming others, you won’t destroy your reputation for being reliable.Change your bad habits: Are you casually late all the time? Do you leave the house around the time you’re supposed to be at your destination? Do you pass gossip around the office? Think about not only your reputation at work, but your reputation with your close friends. Do you have any bad habits that might be holding you back from being seen as a reliable friend or coworker?Communicate: Sometimes things fall through because we’re not communicating well. Did you get a flat tire on your way to meet a friend for lunch? Before you call roadside assistance, send your buddy a text and let them know you’re not going to make it. There’s a big difference between having to change your destination and having to eat lunch alone.last_img read more
