Be the change you want to see in the world!

This week we crossed 850 members in the group. That’s 850 GBTQ guys all looking to improve their lives, seek support, and connect with like-minded people.

One thing that has become apparent is that there is some work we need to do on action taking, on building the mindset that it begins with us.

If you only knew the unlimited resources you have available in your mind, there is no difference between any of us, we all have the potential to do great things in our lives.

I used to believe that all the good things in life would just happen to me, that I would get everything I ever wanted without trying. Boy was I wrong.

One thing remains, it starts with you, it starts with action, it starts with saying to yourself “I’ve got this, I can do one thing, no matter how small today, that will take me towards the life that I want.”

I’ve always loved the quote “be the change you want to see in the world.”

Interestingly enough Gandhi is not quoted as saying that, what he did say was:

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. … We need not wait to see what others do.”


Which I am a much bigger fan of, mainly because of the very last sentence “We need not wait to see what others do.”

Together in this group, we are being the change, we are embodying exactly how we want the LGBTQ community to be. We are not waiting to see what others do, together we can make this happen.

What one thing will you do today to move you towards your dream life?

Whatever it is, I want to hear about it! Drop into the group and share, or reply directly and tell me! 

It begins with you, but together we can achieve anything!
