In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by Andy Traub.
On today’s episode, Andy and A.T. discuss the power of the individual and how to channel it through discovering your passion.
A listener named Sheryl writes in about her experience with breast cancer. Her story prompted A.T. to wonder how people who aren’t writers or speakers or someone with a large audience can have a big, lasting impact on the world.
- Andy brings up the butterfly effect story that he often tells on stage
- The story illustrates how great moments or accomplishments all go back to “ordinary” people who did a seemingly small deed that caused big things to happen down the line
Sheryl mentioned that her experience with cancer didn’t “define” her; it “refined” her.
- Andy points out that this is often seen as an odd way of thinking
- It’s actually a great way of thinking
- As a society, we often think logically to the wrong conclusions
- We have the ability to choose the way we think
Everybody has something they are meant to do.
- It takes a different way of thinking to figure out what that is and master it
- When you can mix your passion with value for others, you can affect enormous amounts of people
Quote from H.G. Wells:
“The test of greatness is this: what did that person leave to grow? By this test, Jesus stands first.”
