Today I am in Charleston, South Carolina. I have been walking through the old historical neighborhoods. Houses that have a firm foundation and live on through time with loving care from their owners. Each house has a story, slavery, ship captains, land owners, and some even have the story of murder because of secrets. Each home has a story that has lived down the walk of history.
How is your house? And I am not talking about your physical house, I am talking about you. What is your life going to tell about you? What is your plan to leave a mark on people’s lives, business, Healthcare or other profession you have chosen. What are you going to do to make a difference? It is a big question with a lot of opportunity. In your on business or profession, what can you do as a company or a person to make a difference in your community?
A few weeks ago I saw a video story about a young entrepreneur who bought 100 hamburgers, 100 apples, and 100 juice boxes. He then took some staff and spent the morning handing out food sacks to the homeless. I think he spent about $200, but it put smiles on 100 homeless people. That very single selfless act made a difference for that one day. Now what would happen if another 31 people did the same thing? A difference would start in that very community. Or how about if you adopted one school kid and tutored him for a school year, what a way to make a difference. So many options to create your own story.
Be creative with your heart.
