I’ve been reading a book called Discover the Gift – It’s Why We’re Here by Shajen Joy Aziz and Demian Lichtenstein (brother and sister).
Here’s a quote in the book from Personal Development teacher Barbara De Angelis. I share it because I want to make a positive difference to you:
“A lot of us discount what we have to offer because we can’t see how it’s going to make us money, or it’s not going to make us famous, or we’re not going to get invited to be on Oprah. So we believe we are not making a difference. But making a difference is really about the way you show up in the world every day. In fact, know it or not, like it or not, you’re already making a difference just by your presence. It may be a good difference or a bad difference, a large difference or a small difference, but you had an effect on everyone who saw you, felt you, or heard you today. So the question is not whether you can make a difference, but what kind of difference are you making?”
Short but sweet this week. What is the difference you are making? Is it aligned to who you really are and what you really want?
If not, maybe now is a good time to re-evaluate and make some changes.
In 10 more weeks we celebrate 9 years of Weekly Thoughts. Personally, I am amazed at my own commitment. Thank you for being part of my community.
