Making Things Happen
“If not me, then who? If not now, then when? “
Paraphrased from Hillel the Elder 110 BC
It is not WHY; it is, WHY NOT!
Think back to your first memory as a child who wanted something – anything. Did you fail? Of course not, otherwise you wouldn’t be here.
If you were hungry, you did anything to get food. If you wanted clean clothes, you let your caregivers know in no uncertain terms that you wanted clean clothes and got them. When you wanted to reach something you did everything in your power to get that item and if it was important enough you got it.
Think back about learning to walk – that seemingly impossible mountain to climb. At least that is what it seemed like at the time. Did you fail? NO! Was it easy? NO! You tried to stand and then fell and it hurt. Did you stop there, NO! You tried again and again and again and again, maybe you had to try 10 times, 100 times, a thousand times but you didn’t quit. You achieved the most important goal in your life. Baby steps, those magic moments. Everyone around you cheered and clapped and laughed and you were the star of all stars. Would you like that feeling again? Let’s Do it.
