Stop Talking About Making a Difference + Start Making a Difference. What does making a difference even really mean? For me making a difference; is simply making someone smile, laugh, or make someone feel good about themselves. We often forget it is the simplest and kindest things we do, that make all the difference in the world. Every restaurant, I go to, I engage the servers and bus boys with intelligent conversation, I ask intriguing questions, and I care about how they are doing in their life. I am curious about how I am affecting people.
My belief is that anything that impacts anybody in the world in a positive way is making a difference. For me making it personal and meaningful is important. For others it may not. For me, I love to have impact-full relationships that leave a lasting impression. How will I be remembered? Is a constant reminder of what my energy and context needs to be. Every day is a precious opportunity to make a difference in someone's life.
The truth of it is the only way to make a difference is to be in action, to risk, and move in any direction. We can all talk about making a difference until we are blue in the face. I am in a men's organization, where we aspire to be leaders in life, but the lack of follow through is a contentious way of sitting and waiting for right time to act. The time is now. The best way to get started on a mission to making a difference is by asking questions. Asking questions like what does making a difference mean to me? How can I make a difference? What am I willing to do to make a difference? And what do I want to be remembered for?
So are you ready to stop talking about making a difference and start making a difference? No, that is perfectly ok with me. But if you are inspired to be part of 5%, where every moment is precious, and every moment is an opportunity to live great lives; then contact me today, I want more intentional friends who want to make a difference today..
