Be the Change you Want to See

I really enjoyed Obama’s visit to Britain and Ireland last week. It was great to see the President get such a warm welcome in the UK. Not sure about how Irish the President is, but you can’t blame the man for having a go. I love this video of President-to-be Obama discussing Guinness with an Irish barman while on the campaign trail in Florida a few years back.

Another man worth listening to is Seth Godin, the blogger and author taking huge steps in artistic empowerment. Seth is working hard to open up new landscapes for the entire creative community. He shares his positive energy and out-of-the-box thinking via the blog.

Seth’s latest blog discusses agency: the power to effect change. “Responsibility comes with the capacity to act in the world,” insists Seth. “If you can decide, if you can act, you have agency.”

“It’s not something you can turn on or off. Either you have the capacity to act in the world. Or you don’t.”

President Obama had it right when he reminded us to “be the change you want to see in the world.” All of us have agency in this mission. Want to see equal opportunities and dignity for all humanity? Be the change. If it never happens, share the responsibility.

Empty that jar of dimes and quarters you have on your dressing table. Cash it in, and pledge it to those less fortunate who want to realise a better life. Support Race4Change. Come with us and be the change!
