Empowering, Enabling People

-- Quote of the Day -- 

“There are plenty of people with a passion…but if they are not willing to work hard for it they cannot be upset that they didn’t reach their full potential. Work hard, after you have set your goals and found your passion – work hard. …if they want greatness they are going to have to do great things every single day. …You have got to do your research; you have got to find a mentor, even an indirect mentor so you can follow their footsteps. …When you find it is what you want to do – there are certain steps that need to be taken. …Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game. You miss 100% of the shot you don’t take. If you really want something there is going to be some risk to reach out for your goal, there is going to be some fear you are going to have to face, there are going to be obstacles that you are going to have to face. …When you stay in your own little world contained you fail to realize the opportunities that are right in front of you because you are thinking so close. …It takes a lot of courage, but the people who are willing to step outside their comfort zone are going to grow and become leaders and life-changers.”

Here's a story to warm your holiday season hearts...

The Big Issue Japan magazine, a magazine sold by the homeless to financially support themselves, marked its 10th anniversary on September 11, 2013. The magazine aims not to "rescue" the homeless, but to encourage them to become financially independent by providing them with work as magazine vendors. It has has amazing success in reaching their goals and is such a heart warming story of encouraging, empowering and enabling those "forgotten" members of society.
