I'm Not Looking at Your Shoes

When you and I met for the first time, I didn't look at your shoes. I didn't look to see what type of clothes you were wearing or ask where you buy them.

I looked at you and your personality.

Material possessions can be very deceiving. Expensive cars, homes and clothing don't mean you're any more "successful" than me or anyone else I know. It could just mean you're up to your eyeballs in credit card debt trying to impress the world when in actuality you're struggling right along with the rest of us.

I've seen incredible stories of people breaking through over the past month. You know which ones I'm talking about. The ones where people enjoy the simple joys or are humble and ask for a little bit of help. These are the stories that make my heart sing. Ordinary people who were struggling getting their chance in the world, and I don't mean the chance to go buy a luxury products. I mean the chance to make a difference in millions of lives.

I'm not going to look at your shoes. You can try to look at mine, but quite honestly if I'm wearing shoes they're probably $1 flip-flops I found on sale at CVS. But they're comfortable and they are me being ME.

Go make your mark in the world, not with material possessions, but on the dozens, hundreds, thousands or millions your can inspire when you are being YOU.
