This first example is a very powerful and short video with such a powerful message. Check this video out HERE. This man is sitting with a sign and people are going about their daily business, not paying too much attention to him. Well, that all changes when a lady comes along and makes a HUGE change that helps this guy out in an amazing way. (I'm not going to give it away, it's something you need to watch to see it for yourself.) I always feel like I need to work harder at being a better person (which I do even if I don't watch this video). I have so much work to do with this and I want to pride myself every day to be better.
Secondly - this podcast from Oprah, this is a must listen to. In fact, there are 2 parts. So after you are done listening to part 1, make sure you get connected to part 2 as well. Both of these podcast episodes are 2 of my all-time favorites. Dr. Maya Angelou is a very powerful difference maker and she shares some HUGE ideas about how important words are not only for others, but also for ourselves. The information that she has in parts 1 and 2, are simply PURE GOLD! Make sure you check out both episodes.
All that I know is that words are powerful difference makers. I've seen the difference they can make for ourselves and others - words that are thoughts, words that are spoken, and for sure words that are written. Seeing that we speak all the time - it's important to see how to do it well and to also pick up any tips we can for making a huge difference throughout life for us. I would love to have a conversation about this or other topics that that you have some ideas about.
