Are you doing something that's bigger than yourself?

Good morning from the dry heat of Arizona! I’ve received tons of stories on how people are doing something bigger than themselves. Keep em’ coming! But I’ve also received questions on how just one person can do something to change the world. This earth is so big and you’re just one person, but you can make a difference. Here’s a story I share in my new book: On December 19, 2007, in upstate Washington a customer decided that she didn’t want to pay for her own drink only, but also for the car behind her, to wish the next person a Merry Christmas. The driver of the car behind her was shocked by the gesture and then he paid for the car behind him. And this went on for 1,112 cars! Seriously!

You can make a difference any minute, any hour, any day. Start small and dream big. Mother Teresa said: “If you can’t feed 100 people, then feed just one.” Do something bigger than yourself today, then go to Facebook and share your story. This week, we’re choosing one story and giving that world-changer a free t-shirt. See you on Facebook!
