Sweeping grand gestures are great, but it’s really the little things that add up to create real change.
What’s more special: one person giving a million dollars to charity, or a million people giving twenty five dollars to charity? The solo millionaire couldn’t possible keep up with the mass amount of goodwill.
Sometimes I feel really small. I’m just one random person out there trying to figure out life. I struggle with work and money and balancing my time for what matters. I think a lot of people think this way. They think, ‘how could I possibly make a difference? I can barely do X … or I can’t even do Y, how could I possibly help?’
I’m not so sure having X or doing Y really matters. What matters is you’re going through things and life, and other people are experiencing things like you too. Sharing your experiences and truth could have a massive impact on someone’s life. One little act is nothing much to look at. Nice, cute, but not very substantial. But one act every day for years? Multiple little gestures every single day over a lifetime? That is true impact.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
