- Because where you live shouldn’t determine who you can become.
- Everyone deserves to see their potential and everyone should believe that they can change the world.

To prove there’s more to life than just existing and move others into action to create massive social change.
The way we approach education has got to change, in my personal opinion. Loving this article about a school who is beginning to flip education in a struggling school in Detroit.
Today I’m thinking about my friend who is constantly pushing herself and others to reach something better and to make the most of everything she can.
Inspire others to be the best they can be
What can you do today to reach out to someone else and help them make the most of something? What can you do today to become better? Whether at the lowest of the lows or a high point in life, there can always be a next step to maximize life. Any moment could potentially be turned completely around, and that’s what I’m learning!
According to this infographic, the CEO of Walmart makes $16,827/hour compared to the Full-Time Associate from Walmart that makes $13,650/year.
I can’t even imagine the impact that the CEO of Walmart could make! Just a fraction of what he makes could seriously change the world.
Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day - and although this Walmart fact is irrelevant it still got me thinking. MLK stood for something that he truly believed. He inspired others into action and seriously led people into a movement of change. What if Walmart’s CEO stood for a belief instead of for profit? The impact that he could make would be immeasurable!
It’s interesting to look at what you can learn from each of the 34 themes from Strengths Finder 2.0 - each existing in a very distinct sphere of life.
I feel like I’m always busy, but never accomplishing much. Just because I’m living a life of activity and full of many little tasks, don’t always mean I’m actually achieving anything.
“Don’t mistake activity for achievement.” – John Wooden
I feel like I’m always busy, but never accomplishing much. Just because I’m living a life of activity and full of many little tasks, doesn’t always mean I’m actually achieving anything.
Based on some time from here, I’m now trying to pick one important thing to focus on each day and chunk it into three manageable action steps. That’s my goal for the day. Takes a chaotic to-do list and transforms it into an achievable focused item.
1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s yours to keep for the entire period.
2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, “life.”
3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”
4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.
5. Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.
6. “There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again look better than “here.”
7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.
8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.
9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
10. You will forget all this.
