Answer the Call to Greatness: Give Someone a Nudge

We all know it doesn’t take much to start a lot of hurt. Still not sure who fired the first shot on the greens of Lexington.

It doesn’t take much to start a lot of good either. Think Rosa Parks. Or Mother Teresa.

It clearly doesn’t take a bulldozer to get big things started, although it sure can feel like it.

All it takes is a nudge.

But you can’t nudge someone else toward greatness until you have the courage to first nudge yourself toward greatness. Every day.

At times that task can feel like a job for the bulldozer. But it’s not.

It takes one little spark. One little nudge. Then God will do what God does:

The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too…. A whole stream of events issue from the decision… which no man could have dreamed would come his way. ~ William H. Murray

Nudge someone toward greatness today by nudging yourself closer toward who God has made you to be. Today.

The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be someone else. ~ E. E. Cummings
