The world does not pay for what a person knows. But it pays for what a person does with what he knows.

Be the difference

When things around you seem too noisy, hectic and out of control, be extra calm, peaceful and patient. If the people in your life seem too greedy and selfish, that’s the time to be extra loving, giving and sincerely compassionate.

When the world seems a bit too confused and aimless, be extra focused and purposeful. For the world outside will soon reflect back to you the energy you give it.

If you don’t like what you see, you have the opportunity to change it by changing the way you are. If there is darkness all around you, that’s an opportunity for you to shine your own special light.

Even a small beacon in the darkness will shine for a long, long way. Choose to be the difference that makes a real difference, and your efforts will bear abundant fruit.

When things around you seem to be at their worst, that’s when you can accomplish the most by being your best. That’s when you can truly make a valuable, much-needed positive difference.

When trouble and confusion surround you, see the situation as the opportunity that it is. Shine your positive light in the face of negativity, and you will change your world.
