Little Things Can Leave A Legacy Too!

Last week I shared a video about ordinary people doing extraordinary things.  But what about the little things we do that can have an amazing impact on other people as well? I had an experience like this one time early in my professional life that cemented two concepts in my mind ever since. The first is that little things do make a difference.

Would You Like To Travel Around The World In 10 Days?

I love to travel. There is so much to see in the world  and sometimes the TV or a magazine just doesn't do it.  There is something about walking up to a famous statue or an incredibly beautiful place and seeing it with your own eyes that just can't be experienced the same in any other way. Maybe it's the journey to get you there.  Maybe it's the anticipation of knowing that you're going to experience it first-hand. Maybe it's the effort that you have to put out to make it a reality.

Here's a great example of a man who simply doesn't allow physical limitations to define him. Emmanuel Kelly was born in war-torn Iraq.   He was left on the steps of an orphanage in a shoebox with his brother. Luckily, they were adopted and taken to Australia to be raised by a very generous woman, Moira Kelly. Check out the amazing performance in this video: [youtube width="595" height="400"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W86jlvrG54o[/youtube] I've watched that video a number of times and it resonates deeply every time I see it.

Motivational Monday 4 – Let’s See What You Got

When you're presented with an opportunity, what do you do? Do you take your shot?  Do you sit back and think about it? [youtube width="550" height="415"]http://youtu.be/7zV6dm3VbB0[/youtube] Today is the day you can choose to bear down on the opportunities that are right in front of you. Today you can choose to pick up the phone and make the calls that have the potential to change your week, month, and year into an absolute winner. Today you can make a decision to move in the direction of heroes. Today is yours, but it's only here for today. Now is the time…
