I receive dozens of emails every day. I read and respond to each one. I love my followers. I adore them. When I put my head on my pillow at night, I fantasize about one them changing the world in some way.
For the past 18 months I’ve been trading emails with one of my followers from India. My friend from India is trying to become a Chartered Accountant. She does not have an easy life. Recently, she and one of my other followers, had sent me an email pertaining to a recent Tip of the Morning To Ya post. They both noticed something about the post that was not quite right and sent me separate emails with their feedback. I immediately realized they were both right. So, I edited my post.
I received a subsequent email from my friend from India thanking me for hearing her. She was very happy that I valued her feedback. In her email she actually expressed some disbelief that her opinions mattered to me. And It got me thinking. There are many people out there who do not think they matter.
Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Jesus, Galileo, Einstein, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Mark Zuckerberg and many of the self-made millionaires in my study were individual human beings who, in some way, changed the world in which we live.
Each one of us has the capacity to change the world. Each one of us can make it a better place. Each one of us matters. We just need to believe that we matter.
