Inspiration Wednesday… Change the World.

I’ve decided to add an Inspiration Wednesday section, because I think it’s a healthy reminder that anything is possible.

When I left a job I loved at Microsoft for island life, many were skeptical. I wrote this great email to all of my colleagues that High Risk = High Return. Six months later people still tell me that it was the best departure email that they’ve ever read. I suppose it’s because the email is a clear reflection of me and my pursuit of happiness. I haven’t changed the world yet, but I sincerely hope I’ll have the opportunity to try.

I’m a PC Geek, but I can’t help but love Apple’s old ad Think Differently because it showcases people that rise up to challenges and make a lasting imprint on the world. Sometimes change is what we find when we open ourselves up to a world of possibilities. I could not have said it better, Think Differently.

Sometimes happiness sounds better with a Y. I love Will’s speech to his son, coaching him to pursue his dreams: “You want something go get it, period.” – Pursuit of Happyness Movie

I grew up with an inspirational friend without arms and legs. This next video reminds me of her and her passion for life. If you look into her eyes, you’ll quickly realize that there is nothing she can’t do – thanks for the powerful lesson in life Lindsay. Nick Juvicic has a similar story – “I Love Life”.

Nothing worth pursuing is without risk, but you have to at least attempt it. What are you waiting for?
Happy Inspirational Wednesday.

    I guess I’m in the 2% category -I’ve read your farewell email and am responding. It was very insightful and inspiring. Makes me feel proud to have worked with you! Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Jennifer! As it turned out – 52 people responded to that email which was just shy of a 30% response. As far as database marketing goes, it far exceeded my expectations. I think it just goes to show that “people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it” & passion is intoxicating.
