One person can
A quick exercise
Yesterday over a chance conversation someone asked me why I haven’t written in a while. He went on to add… “regardless of anyone reading your posts or not, I always do and will. Please write.”
Hearing that at a time when life is stretched out in all directions was inspiration enough to step out and away from everything going on and make the time to put this out there.
“I truly value your appreciation and trust that some bonds withstand the tides of time.”
So this one’s for you.
And each of you who connect with his sentiment. Or mine. As both are similarly united in thought.
If you can touch the life of just one person, it’s worth it. Grab the opportunity. This one connection measured against the vastness of the world may seem insignificant to the ambitious, yet to the person whose life you’ve touched, it could mean the world.
Besides through this one person you’ve probably had a far greater impact on way more people than you realize.
Think about it. When one person influences another, what happens?
A ripple effect. Over time this one person can actually impact generations to follow.
Here’s a quick exercise.
Think about all the people who have impacted your life. Teachers, employees, coworkers, managers, customers, family or friends. Make a list. If too many come to mind, start with ten at a time. Let them know how they played a small or big part in influencing your life. Just sharing your experiences and insights may positively impact their current circumstances. Who knows? It may be just what they need to hear at this point of time in their life. Trust me, it’s far more generous than any material gift of gratitude you can ever give.
Sooner or later you will have the same act of kindness reciprocated. Life always comes full circle. Like a boomerang. An echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get.
All it takes is one gesture. One person. One moment at a time.
