At the Olympics in China we saw the power of a group working as one cohesive unit.  In Vancouver we saw the power of one individual soaring through the air over a ‘moving prairie’.  The effect was stunning and reinforces my belief that ‘one’ can make a difference.

“The power of one man or one woman doing the right thing for the right reason, and at the right time, is the greatest influence in our society.”
—Jack Kemp

When one person steps into the unknown with faith to discover his or her authentic self something magical happens.  A luminous life force begins to pulse within that person.  We recognize them by the goosebumps and feelings of inspiration which are invoked within our own hearts.

Each one of us has this potential, this seed for greatness.  They say ‘many are called, but few answer.’  Sadly, this is too true.  When was the last time you listened to the inner promptings of action within your gut?  It is never too late.

Many feel that taking these steps is selfish or indulgent.  I say to you, if there is a aspect of you which will serve to elevate you and inspire others, how can it be selfish to take those steps?  By not taking them you deny all of us the benefit of your radiance.
