What is the point of it all?
Everyone must find the answer to this question for themselves. The only way to answer it is through living and exploring your precious life.
Approach it with the mindset of a contributor. Consider your potential…what you give may be the catalyst for something wonderful happening in someone’s life. You never know what this means to you until you act.
A perspective that you share may open someone’s eyes, a smile may brighten their day, a kind word may cause them to step back from the brink of oblivion.
You may be the reason that another person learns to be kind because you allow them to be kind to you…
Everyone says, Think big! What impact can I make on a global scale? I want to change the world!
The choice to walk creates the path ahead…
I believe it is important to focus on the point of engagement that is right in front of me…and find the Something Colored Beautiful moments in my ordinary day, those mundane points of impact that I have come to understand as blessings in disguise.
Until we are willing to do that, to be quiet and listen and observe and serve, our ego runs the show. It is our ego that screams, Be important or die!
In this way, it is speaking its truth, because everything is a deathmatch to the ego. Problem is, in its world, everyone dies.
This is what I have found to be true in my life – If I release my need to be important to everyone, I can focus on being important to someone.
I believe it is important to not spread yourself too thin…build your impact one by one person at a time…the person you see before you is your point of impact.
The ego hates to hear that. It hates to be last, or even second best. It must win. If you let it win, this drive will cost you your life, because for our ego even first is never enough.
Engage each person from your power-point, your point of impact. Make every interaction a quality engagement. Whatever flows from that point…if you influence one or grow your impact to reach thousands or millions, you will have built it on a truly solid foundation.
Then, friend, you will have the satisfaction of answering your own question.
