On this edition of the Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright delivered an energetic call from this year’s last Instant Thunder in Burlington, N.C.
Why are people confused? Why don’t people start something? Andy wants to give you the recipe to fix what ails you.
How do you relate?
Do you want to make a difference? Are you doing something that makes a difference? Are you doing it with people who make a difference? Are you doing it at a time that makes a difference?
It’s not about being perfect. It is about wanting a better life for yourself.
Do you believe big? There are four things to think about in terms of belief.
Do you believe in yourself?
Do you believe in your mission?
Do you believe in your people?
Do you believe in your God?
Most people are passive. Why do people talk about significant regrets and not about what they tried and failed at? Why would you spend time talking about something you didn’t even attempt to do?
Most people think this way: If I could just be there … I’d would do this. Why? Starting would be better and more helpful.
The truth is that you can only start where you are! That’s your first move.
Real freedom comes from knowing that you don’t have to save the entire world. Your goal should be to be impactful and to make a difference in the place where you call home.
Start with one thing.
Henry David Thoreau wrote, “One was not born into this world to do everything, but to do something.”
Use the right words
King Solomon said, “Words kill, words give life, they’re either poison or fruit! You choose.”
Speak positive and be nice to people.
Make small changes
Make small adjustments. Get people to move three percent for the better.
John Wesley wrote, “Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. All the time you can. To all the people you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.
Start small, but believe big.
