Impact begins with you. (D.O.K)
Happy new week friends,
I look forward to sharing with you Brilliant and Excellent tips for attaining your goals, fulfilling your Purpose and making the world a better place.
On a late cool evening, as I ride across town, I felt relaxed and somewhat excited because it was weekend. We approach a popular junction, where I asked my driver to take the left turn, it wasn’t where I had planned to head, it led in a different direction. Just a few minutes later, I noticed a woman who was apparently in distress and seems to be in need. I was truly moved to stop and help but I couldn’t help but feel the risk involved in doing that. It was now almost midnight, there were no street lights nor any other person in view. I drove on and didn’t look back.
Now I couldn’t help but think about that woman the next morning. For her, she needed help, for me, it proved risky. There are many people with good intentions who have stopped and lost their lives to armed robbers or worst conditions. The question I asked myself, again and again, was, in a world where people have needs and privileges are not shared equally, how do you rise to the responsibility of helping another person who needs what you have in abundance.
I realized that it truly begins with you. It begins with taking individual responsibility within your local community, it begins with identifying the needs that surround you and taking the steps to meet it. You don’t need to have millions in your bank account, the impact is often small achievements with big results.
I thought about what would happen if everyone can look within their space and reach out to people who do not have, it means, for the most part, needy people on the streets would reduce. There were many more people in that woman’s shoes, going through tough times, just like the story of the young girl- success- who was chased out of school for not paying her school fees. Chances are there was someone in her community who could have paid the fees without breaking a nail. When the young girl made a spotlight, everybody wanted to pay this one girl’s fees. What about all the thousands of young children who will never make it to the spotlight, where is their hope? What we should be talking about on a larger scale is how to make education at primary level free for all, how schools can manage the situation going forward. And while that is going on, look within your space to the people who need your help.
And when we speak of help, it doesn’t mean it has to be your money. You can offer your time, your resources, your energy, your voice, your knowledge, your connections, the list is endless. When a man is privileged to be raised higher than many, then he has a responsibility, a responsibility to drive impact first within his local community.
It begins with you, to give what you have in your hands because everyone has something they can offer.
