The Power Of One

One person can have the power to affect the reputation of the company they represent. One person – whether they are holding a mop or a checkbook, or a briefcase or a telephone – can determine whether the customer's experience was incredible or deplorable. One person can make a team or break a team (think Rudy). One person can affect the morale of his entire staff. One person can be responsible for creating a paradigm shift in many.  One person can bring salvation and hope to multitudes.

This your motivational speaker talking when I tell you these words – not for you to like me, but because they are true – YOU MATTER. Your voice. Your hands and feet. Your story. Your participation. Your vote. Your attitude. Your opinion. Your mark on this world. If you are sitting there in the dark, feeling invisible, feeling small, feeling unappreciated – stop. You are not invisible. You are not small. You are appreciated. No matter what it looks like from where you sit. The truth is not always as you feel it. You were put here for a valuable purpose – to step into a role that only you can fill. We need you.

For just as much power as there is one – then just imagine when one adds another one. And another one. When arms link, when spirits unite, when visions join together with passion and purpose. When one tiny drop joins millions of other tiny drops to form a torrent of water with a strength greater than the rock which seemed to have overpowered that drop only moments before. For just as the power of one can change many – so is the power of many to do what one can not.

And so today, I need you to take a look in the mirror and say "I believe. In me." And then take that power out to your job  – to your family – to your community – to your church – and say "I believe in you." And together we will make a difference. One person at a time.
