I’m Not Trying to Change Your Life

3950078_1429260939_0243_updatesI have an upcoming speaking engagement just about an hour from where I live and I have been working on what I plan to say to this group.  Any time I plan to speak to a group I try to find a particular message for them; usually let my heart lead my outline. For this group I have come up with an important comment on volunteering and charity.

My working title is: “I’m not here to change your life, I’m here to convince you to change someone else’s.”

I first came up with the idea based on the principles I espouse and ask the Dream Big community to adopt.  If I help one person learn the value of volunteering and that person then goes out into the world and positively affects another life, then my job was a success.  If the next person then duplicates the same action, my “reach” in this world might extend considerably.

I encourage you to think about the impact you are having on this world.  Even if you have never put much thought to the subject, you are leaving lasting impressions on someone, somewhere.  Make sure those impressions and imprints are honorable, honest and lasting.

Just a thought for a Tuesday morning…

Oh, one last thing before I go: Could you do me a huge favor and hit one of the SHARE buttons?

  1. Danny, I got the volunteer blogging job and survey participant for International Bipolar Foundation. And the funny thing is I just started working on an article and it is one of their most sought after topics. Boy God works in mysterious ways.

    I am scared to death though. And excited. A volunteer job in something I can do, write.
