If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Do you use your talents, knowledge and passion to inspire and help others? Begin with gratitude. Reinvent yourself. Everyone can find their passion and do what they want to do. Whether it’s helping someone, inspiring people or making a difference in the lives of others, you can do it.
Be grateful for what you have. Not for the material things, but the lessons learned in life, the adversity that made you grow stronger, and the continual falls that brought you to the road of success.
I always dreamt of how I could make a difference but didn’t quite get it until I sold my business. It was then that I realized that helping children was my passion. Learning one’s purpose can come in many ways. It can often come through watching someone else suffer, your own adversity, a need for reinvention, personal growth, life experiences, motivational seminars or a lifelong passion.
I began by volunteering. This grew into an awareness about how our children are treated and why many parents fail at parenting. I soon realized why I was put on this earth and what my mission was. Now I work to keep children safe and strengthen families.
One cannot fully help others until they can help themselves. When you learn to love yourself and forgive those who you feel wronged you, it is then that you can reinvent yourself into the person you want to be. This is the time that you are so open, a time when you begin to learn what your passion is.
Working on yourself inwardly, psychologically and emotionally with honesty and integrity is when clarity begins. To keep striving and continue to learn about love, nurturing, compassion and forgiveness is key. Learning more about you and your life’s lessons opens doors that you never could have dreamed of.
If you have a true passion and commitment and constantly seek opportunities to do what you want to do, anything is possible!
Many say that setting lofty goals doesn’t work. There is nothing wrong with setting lofty goals. It makes you strive that much harder until you get to where you want to be. It takes courage to step out of the box and do what others tell you cannot be done.
Be committed to do whatever it takes and always stretch yourself. Don’t settle for anything less than what you want.
No matter how large or small, it is important to strive to be your best and share yourself so you can make a difference. And by teaching this to children, we can create a world of selfless do- gooders who create a stronger and more loving world. Making a difference is not what you give to yourself, but what you give of yourself. Do it with love, nurturing, kindness, respect, compassion, forgiveness, gratitude and most of all, your passion.
