There is nothing wrong with supporting a good cause. In fact, we all need a cause. We’re all here because of something, to do something, to share something, the great challenge is to figure out what that something is.
Without a cause, without a purpose we are going somewhere, we just don’t know where — and that’s a tough road. We all need to accomplish something while we’re here. What’s the point if you die with with the most toys, or the most money, because you can’t take it with you, but you can leave something behind. That something is the one thing you gave to the world which made an impact, which touched other lives; it’s why you are loved, why you are remembered. For you, what is that thing? Think about it.
For my friend Rich Polt, I can already think of nearly 100 reasons why he is on the right path to leaving something of meaning behind. Rich has a website and a mission called Talking Good. With all transparency I was featured as one of the nearly 100 articles he has written on that site which is gaining worldwide recognition. it was a proud day, but I am only 1-in-100 – and I’m sure way beyond that number.
Rich has learned the key in life is to give, then receive. So when Rich sent a message yesterday to ask those who have been featured on Talking Good to share his most recent story in advance of his 100th feature, I was happy to do so. Again, give first, then earn the right to ask. Rich is taking his “something” to new heights.
His latest feature is a surprising one and an even better one for those who might be a fan of one of the most celebrated TV series in recent memory, and it all happened by accident. So give yourself a five minute break and click on the first link below, it’s bad and it’s good all at the same time. You’ll see….
