Be the change, or change the be

I could hear the passion in her voice as she described to me what she had been doing, and what she wanted to do moving forward. The dichotomy was that she had recently been dealt a difficult hand by a educational company after accomplishing great things for them during her time there.

Yet, even in the midst of this she was focused on being the change. I could hear it, feel it, and I know she will accomplish much if she pursues her passion to help students with special needs -- especially if she chooses herself first.

There are others though who work without passion. Perhaps they merely see what they do as a paycheck, a job, or just a means to an end (many times just the weekend). For them perhaps it is time to change the be.

No matter the role one plays, there is opportunity to be the change the world needs to see. When we relinquish that responsibility to someone else, we lose passion and vigor for what we do. Unfortunately, others suffer for this as much as we do ourselves.

I believe each one of us has a gift to share with the world and by doing so the world becomes a better place. If we have passion in what we do we can then be the change. If we seek to be the change then we have the potential to make the change.

To JD and others reading this, who have a passion for what they are doing, be that change you desire to see in the world.

For those struggling with a lack of passion, find out what excites you, and if it is different than what you are currently doing, seek ways to change the be.

We need what you have to offer, now more than ever.
