It’s Time Everyday People Began to Believe: We Can Change the World!
Maybe you know this about me, maybe you don’t. But all this stuff I talk about with the Lakeland Business Leaders and Winter Haven Business Leaders etc… is about the bigger picture. It’s really not about any one of us. If we can all see beyond ourselves (or, at least enough of us can) we can accomplish great things. In the first 2:00 minutes of this video, Sir Richard Branson says what I believe:
It’s obvious, Branson says, that “Plan A,” isn’t working, so we’ve developed “Plan B”…
What is Plan B?
“A number of us decided that we can’t leave every problem to the politicians and social workers to sort out the problems of the world…”
“If we could get EVERY SINGLE business in the world, every single entrepreneur to play their part we could get on top of most of the world’s problems…”
“A whole group of great people and the idea is that we’ll try to work together to get our own house in order…”
“So instead of just talking about the bottom line, also make sure all our companies worry about the planet, worry about our people and also try to help other companies do the same…”
“And if small companies can adopt LOCAL ISSUES, and bigger companies can adopt national issues and bigger companies still can adopt international issues, and help politicians and social workers to get on top of them, the world would be a much better place for all of us to live in…”
I believe WE are part of Plan B… Do you have any ideas or suggestions for how we, as LOCALS, can continue to change the world? Please share!
