Make a Difference

We are a nation of thinkers and dreamers. This is wonderful! We need thinkers and dreamers to make sense of the world and imagine future possibilities. But, to make a difference in life, we also need something else.

We need thinkers and dreamers who can follow through with action!

The 19th century English artist, poet and social thinker, John Ruskin, left us with this important maxim:

"What we think or what we know
or what we believe is, in the
end, of little consequence.
The only consequence is what we do"

How true!

It's what we DO that makes a difference.

As we all know, there can be a huge gulf between thinking and doing. Just consider all those great ideas that you've had that you've never done anything with. Yes, we've all been there with this one!

But life gives us plenty of opportunities to manifest something that makes a difference. What's more, it's usually the small things that are the most meaningful, such as just being there for someone!

Making a difference begins not from thought but from what you feel in your heart. And, when you start `thinking' from your heart, you begin `doing' all the things that really matter.

So, what are you doing today? Does it really make a difference?

Go on ... make it happen!
