As I contemplate the death of Steve Jobs this week, I feel really empowered by the realization of all that he accomplished in his life.  More importantly, I thoroughly believe that every person on this planet has the same ability to do something great with their life.  We all have something to contribute. Some talent or skill or ability that is unique to each of us.  Something that gives you joy, energy and passion just thinking about what you could do with this gift, if only…..  I think it is time to put aside the “if only’s” in life and start by recognizing that we each have something to give.

You don’t have to go out and conquer the world today, just start by thinking about what you enjoy and how each little thing that you do can help someone, anyone, even if it is only one other person.

Dr. Martin Luther King said “Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love.”

Make today great by going out and doing something to bring you closer to fulfilling your purpose.
