The world needs you to give a damn.
People need love and encouragement. Cities need revitalization.
People are looking for leaders.
Have you ever seen something that just bugged you, made you sad, or filled with righteous anger? Did the words “Somebody needs to do something!” escape your lips?
If it’s something you can’t stop thinking about, something you can’t run away from, something that seems to keep popping up in your life…
You’re the somebody that’s needed to do something.
You’re the somebody the world needs to give a damn.
Take Pride In All You Do
The world today is selfish and self-absorbed. People are rude, inconsiderate, and out for themselves. Customer service is a thing of the past and ‘not my job’ is how people operate.
It’s amazing how we’re grateful for even slightly better than (what used to be) mediocre service. Hell, we’ll even take notice when someone is competent in their job.
Didn’t used to be that way.
I firmly believe that how we do one thing is how we do everything. This is something I hammered home to my kids every time they half assed something.
I’d tell them “You want to stand out? Do your best at all times. Pay attention to the details. Give a damn about what you do.”
Give a damn at work and you’ll give a damn elsewhere.
You’ll start getting annoyed with the way things are and you’ll start seeking ways to change them.
I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.
If we all gave a damn, not only about what we did but the world around us also…what an amazing world this would be.
