Today I was surfing YouTube and found a story/video….or “stideo” (yea, I just made that up)…about a 24-year-old girl, Veronika, who turned her family tribulations into a solution for other families in need. It started like the scene from the film Pay It Forward when Veronika’s school teacher assigned her a new project: “design something that would fill a real need.” Veronika’s creation: A puffy coat that doubled as a sleeping bag. Her goal: to help the homeless by keeping them warm. However, that solution didn’t fix the deeper issue and instead of saying, “that’s good enough,” she challenged herself to do better. Discover Veronika’s new idea at the bottom of the page.
Everyone has at least one idea or gift that can change the world. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what your background is or how much money you have. Once you find your talent, that one thing that makes a positive impact, that’s when the fun begins! Even the smallest of impacts can affect huge change: it’s the Butterfly Effect.
Put in the effort and watch the world change right before your eyes…..all it takes is confidence and inspiration. As Sir Ben Kingsley’s character challenges in the film Sexy Beast, “Where there’s a WILL there’s a WAY. And there’s ALWAYS a will.” You just have to find it.
When inspiration and passion merge…..lives are changed.
There is a brilliant idea within you too…..just put in the work.
