Last night I experienced the beauty of humanity.
I invited a homeless man to the final session of the Landmark Forum I was attending.
Some people were shocked when he came but I was not.
This man had a beautiful soul and was kind.
He saw possibility for himself, a chance to transform his life, and choose to come.
I asked him what breakthroughs he would get from attending the forum and he responded, “I could use a breakthrough in everything.” And laughed a bit.
I asked him if he wanted to attend and he said “yes.” There was just one thing in his way… the tuition of $625. (more money than he had seen in years)
What happened next was remarkable.
In less than 30 minutes the money was donated by more than 30 people that had never met the man.
People gave anything they had; from $1 to $100.
They believed in him and the power of the human spirit.
That is connection. That is acting as one.
It showed me that if you are clear on your cause, you can achieve anything.
So I’d like to pose a challenge that I will do with you. Lets share with 5 strangers what you are struggling in life, what is holding you back from getting to your dreams.
Maybe you will find common ground, maybe you will find a partner that will help you to your goal, maybe you’ll get shut down, but at the end of the day you did it, and that is one step closer to you attaining your goals.
I look forward to sharing my results with you and hope to hear some stories from you too. :)
