U.S. Constitution and Citizenship Day
The founding fathers believed in writing The Constitution of the United States to inspire and guide the country.
They took action to draft this forward-thinking document.
The same principles call on us to write constitutions to lead our lives, families, and organizations.

Constitution Day and Your Constitution
This is the first workshop Life Leaders has offered on Constitution Day. We are beginning by inviting members and a few friends who want to take advanced steps on their plans for life. We will offer you water and coffee, a sip of wine donated if you wish, provide a few minutes on concepts and tools, then allow most of the time for writing your constitution, plus coaching if you want it. The template provided will offer modern-day language to prompt your thinking about mission, vision, values, beliefs, and strategies, which are also embedded in the Constitution. Use our template or adapt your own.
Students will understand the Constitution better if they write one for themselves. Families can live better together if they identify shared vision and values. Individuals live better if they internalize their Constitution just as the U.S. Constitution guides laws, plans, and budgets.
You probably will receive bonus ideas for your desired legacy, lifestyle, and goals to fulfill those. The “Big 3” parts of a plan that can add to goals: Constitution, Legacy Vision, Lifestyle Vision. College students who have written these with us have improved college and career decisions plus motivation due to having more purpose. Mission for Marriage statements have helped couples, engaged and married.
Empowerment Week connects to Constitution Day
We presented a seminar last week on “Earning Empowerment” to support you and Empowerment Week in Birmingham, which focuses on commemorative and service events. If you also want to receive lessons and tools as well as take action on how to earn empowerment, you can visit and/or join Life Leaders. You can learn “Levels of Earning and Delegating Empowerment” and how to prepare better in professional and other areas of life. Writing your Constitution with a draft mission, vision, values, and strategies provides inspiration and guidance toward your goals. For those who want more empowerment, this is a valuable step.
Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is a combined event that is annually observed in the United States on September 17. This event commemorates the formation and signing of the Constitution of the United States on September 17, 1787. It also recognizes all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become US citizens.
Life Leaders America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Alabama that presents events monthly plus provides public service programs supported by volunteers, staff, and budgets funded by membership donations, grants, and sponsorships.
