One Person Can Make A Difference!

One Person Can Make A Difference!

Do you think that one person can't make a difference?

If everyone did one thing every day to make a difference in someone's life, imagine the multiplying effect...

millions of people would be doing something daily to make a difference for someone else!

The Starfish Story be inspired

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”

The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”

“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf.

Then, smiling at the man, he said…” I made a difference for that one.

It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little - do what you can!

Think about it. WE can ALL make a difference. It doesn't take a lot, either.

A simple act of kindness through the hustle and bustle of your daily lives can make a difference.

So as you go about your busy day, hold open the door for someone.

When you're sitting in a traffic jam, let a person merge in front of you.

You'd be amazed the effect a small act of kindness can do.

The person that you are nice too, may think about passing it on by being nice to someone else, and so on and on it goes.

You really can make a difference every day in someone else's life!
