I dare you to make a difference in someone's life!

At this time of year we go out of our way to give gratitude on Thanksgiving Day and to Give Gifts to people whom we care about. For me although I certainly partake in the festivities of the holiday season, my preference is to give to others and to make a difference in someone’s life every day. Watch this video and allow yourself to be inspired to make a difference everyday in someone else’s life.

Several years back a fellow I knew suggested that everyone in this meeting I was in make a point of doing something special for someone every day for 30 days. I work from home, and so frequently things were done by email and phone, which deprived me from experiencing visual feedback, until one day when I was out driving through town. At the time I was living in Houston. I got stuck in a huge traffic jam and as the traffic was creeping along I noticed that there was a semi-truck that was trapped in the right hand lane and that no one was letting him in front of them. There he sat with his blinker on and when I finally got up to his truck, nearly 5 minutes later, I blocked traffic and flashed my lights for him to move his truck into my lane.

I will never forget what the truck driver did. He pulled his truck into the lane and stopped. Stepped out of his truck onto the step on the side of his truck, took off his cowboy hat, tipped his hat to me and took a full bow. Got back into his truck and drove on.

His reaction made me feel sooooo good that I still get “God Bumps” when I think of how that small gesture on my part got that awesome reaction. I dare you to make a difference everyday in someone else’s life. And please post your stories below. Inspire others to do good in the world and make our world a better place to live.
