In mid July I have the unique opportunity to travel to Kenya with my good friend Bob Tierney. Bob is an incredible person who helps teach the next generation of entrepreneurs through learning the ins and outs of real estate. As we were talking today we realized that so many people never watch the big gestures, they watch out for the little things.
The little things re-define what you see in a person. A hug can be 10x more powerful than buying someone dinner. A compliment can change someone's attitude and completely change the course of their day.
Humans are so complex and so hard to understand, however, by taking the time to understand the little things you do, the small actions you take, the little things that define who you are, you can begin to understand the little things of those around you.
Let the little things change your world, leave your loved ones flowers, call your family when you can. Change the narrative of things you do on a minute by minute basis and you will begin to alter the course of the big things. Your dreams will now be supported by someone who merely saw who you are by giving them a smile. Your mission will be backed by people who you gave nothing more than compliments.
Allow the moments that seem like nothing to become the defining moments in your life. Give kindness and hope to everyone you meet and you will create the future you have seen in the reflection of those you help.
