Standing amidst the Grand Canyon made me feel tiny, insignificant almost. It has been here for millions of years – millions. Who am I? Some tourist who has paid $25 to look through binoculars at the beauty of this overwhelmingly vast and impressive Canyon? It made me feel microscopic. I actually had to take a step back in order to take it all in. It gave me an interesting perspective and reminder of how truly small I am in this world. Do I really matter? It got me thinking…
It’s easy to think that we just blend in with everything and everyone else around us. It’s easy to believe we don’t matter, that we’re just another number. That our existence doesn’t make any difference. Oh, but it does. It only takes one person to stand up and shine, unconsciously giving others permission to do the same. A ripple effect of greatness. It starts with just one. It starts with you.
Your playing small does not serve the world. Who are you not to be great?
Be great, and smile with your heart!
The Grand Canyon, Arizona.
