I often think back to when I was just 17 years old and struggling in every way, physically, financially, emotionally, I remember pulling my car over at 1:30 in the morning and writing in my journal—The Secret to Living is Giving. That success in life is based on our ability to give, not take. That one of life's greatest gifts is the ability to give with no strings attached. That this truly is the "secret to living.”
Even from this early stage in my life I’ve always believed if we’re blessed enough to have an insight, if we’re blessed enough to have economic opportunities, then even though we may have done our part, we’re also blessed enough to be able to give back. To those who much has been given, much is expected. And more than that, I know there is an unbelievable gift in life that happens when you step outside of yourself, no matter what your problems are, and find a way to reach out and help someone else who is facing more challenging times than you and help change their life.
I know this personally, for it happened to me when I was young...
Our family was going through a rough, rough patch and it was during this time when a stranger showed up at our door on Thanksgiving to deliver food we could not have afforded ourselves—some stranger, someone we didn’t know who just cared. And when he donated that food it transformed my life forever. It made me believe that if strangers cared about my family and me, then I should care about strangers and their families. It taught me that one person could truly make a difference in someone else’s life.
Now it’s your turn to change the lives of people in need.
It can be hard, often we find ourselves thinking that one person can’t make a difference, that only something extraordinarily big can have a real effect, but when you stop and think about the more than half the planet who lives on less than $2 a day, the 1.2 billion people on earth who have no access to clean water and the thousands of families in our very own communities whose children go hungry every night, you realize it wouldn’t take a lot for you personally to create massive change in a person’s life.
So please take one minute to look at my projects, and if one touches you, take this opportunity to transform many lives, yours and those of families in need.
You can make a difference. You can change a life.
Live strong and live with passion,
