Quote Roulette #5

“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.” – Jim Valvano

This week’s roulette has a very special meaning to me. Both my fathers, my actual father and my step-father are no longer here. But what they shared with me while on this planet is something that I use and has made me who I am today.

At the same time, it reminds me of the gift that I feel compelled implicitly to give to others. I want to help them believe in themselves. Even though they may not be my actual son or daughter, what I learn, I want to leave behind so they can find strength in themselves. As a learner myself of everything I am curious about or need to learn, I am motivated not just to learn for myself, but what I can learn for others.

I’ve surrounded myself by these kinds of people. My social circles, family circles, and work circles have many of these types of givers of learning, support, and belief that I can be better. It’s a multiplying effect. Like a stone thrown into a still pond, they also have stones they are throwing in and those ripples coming together with mine have the power to create waves. Waves that can carry people and elevate them beyond their current status.

I will always find ways to honor the gift my fathers gave me. I will always assume positive in my fellow humanity. I will believe they can always be better. I hope you can find yourself a steward of something you’d like to share forward you may have learned. Give some the light they need and can’t find within themselves. I promise, there is at least one person out there you could provide just what they need to take the next leap.
