I´m challenging you!

I´m getting older every day. Each year I celebrate my birthday. This year I want to celebrate me becomming 58 with you – friends, family, collegues and many others. I challenge you all to achieve the goal of this campaign – to raise 2500$ for water to the needy. I/we in the western world take water for granted – but it is not a fact everywhere. Follow my example and give from your abundance – together we complete the goal in the campaign period until my 58th borthday: Welcome to help make the world a better place.

I follow The Minimalists blog – http://www.theminimalists.com/birthday/ – in this post Ryan Nicodemus begins a campaign for his 31st birthday  – collecting money for water to the needy.

I really love this idea and was challenged to follow his example. Now I challenge YOU.

I have often thought “I should try to make a difference” – now “I MUST make a difference” is my saying..

Visit my campaignpage  – http://mycharitywater.org/p/campaign/?campaign_id=31737 – give of your abundance and together make the world a better place – for ALL!

Things collide

I went to a seminar this day. The theme of the day was a new corprate idea – LEAN – and the main speaker before lunch had a bunch of pictures – one of them got me feeling really well – the Yoda from Star Wars says – “Try. There is no try. There is only do or not do”. Things collide. I met the Minimalists. Read their views. In one of their essays they write this: Your mission: try to pick up the chair. But this presents a unique problem, doesn’t it? You see, you can’t try to pick it up, either you pick it up or you don’t, you can or you can’t, you succeed or you fail, but you don’t try. It is impossible to try to pick up that chair. Stop trying; start doing.

This happens all the time. For everyone. But I don’t think we take it serious. When we begin to get interrested in a new aspect of life people and things seem to come to us. And we seem to be more open to seeing and beeing influenced – by peoiple and things. it Is is as we become magnets – we become magnets to our interrest. To our focus. If wee keep that focus and we feed it it will grow and grow. In all directions. Leading us into surprising roads. New heights and views. So. I say it again. Go for it. Go for it.
