Give to Nothing or Great??

Sometimes I see a quote and it blows my “doors off” … found this one in Stephen Covey’s “The 8th Habit”:

“I know this now. Every man gives his life to what he believes. Every woman gives her life for what she believes. Some people believe in little or nothing, and so they give their lives to little or nothing …”

– Joan of Arc

It’s painful knowing people give their energies to nothing … seems to be an awful waste (my sense is they feel the “waste” too … and it’s also hurting them). Thankfully there are people as one of my friends would say who are “fighting the good fight”. And there are many – all over the place.

Even those who are lost, they’re seeking answers … it’s our job to inspire & support them. After all …

“Nothing great has ever been done alone”

– Rod Woodson

Something to ponder …

  1. Hi Kyle! Wow, I love this quote its so true! It’s not until they can see the world differently or abundantly, that they find out everyone including themselves has the potential for greatness. Invest in yourself. Hugs, Trina
