Rich Man, Poor Man

You and I have been given the keys to the Kingdom. To make people feel. To inspire passion. To realize greatness. You don’t work for a paycheck. You work for a purpose.

You are entrusted with wonderful stories waiting to be told. These stories have the power to penetrate through the noise and capture attention.

So many are lost in a crowd. These are those who are desperate for relief. They walk the streets hastening about. Some seek hope in a trash can. Others look for it in a device. Both are the same. Both desire alike. They need each other to gain the prize.

Story tellers are for such a time. You can save the world. It rests with you. To represent and present your cause. To make a case. If not you, then who? You must meet this challenge. Lives depend on our success. The lives we champion and those who hear and answer our petitions.

The poor are among us because the rich so desperately needs them. Both seek help. Their hearts hurt. The seek meaning. They seek purpose. Both fear. Your story will rescue them.

Listen to me. It is time, to use your courage to encourage.

Think about your cause. Does your story have energy to take my breath away with a rush of passion and move me to dream even though I’m awake? Your story must convey imagery that transports people to places in their minds where they’ve never been. People will only do what they’ve first envisioned themselves doing.

Imagine telling a story so powerful and inspirational, people share it with family and friends. Perhaps they save it to be read again. Most assuredly they will engage with your cause.

A great story will grab a hold of your heart and never let go. It articulates the impact of each life and reminds us the ultimate vision. People join causes greater than themselves. To do big things, like ending hunger, finding a cure, stop abuse, save animals, etc. Tell us your dream. When your vision becomes reality. Do it often.

Rich man, poor man, both desperately need a life of meaning. They wait for your story. To bring them together. The have and have not search for purpose. Show them the way back and then the way forward.

Go inspire!
