“STOP COMPLAINING AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT”


THESE ARE THE WORDS ECHOED BY MANY OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS WHEN CONFRONTED WITH HEARING COMPLAINTS FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN IMPACTED BY NEGATIVE OUTCOMES FROM BAD DECISIONS/CHOICES BY OTHERS.
Becoming a Mentor is one way to “Do Something About It”. Mentoring leaves probably the single greatest impact on the lives of youth than any other opportunity, program, or preventive factor that can be offered. Youth who are mentored are 130% more likely to hold leadership positions themselves. Now that one statistic alone says a lot about what we [as a society] would like to see happen in the lives of any youth who has been deemed “High-risk”, “troubled teen”, or criminally connected to the Juvenile Justice system.
What we also hear from those who have been challenged to “Do Something About it”, is “I’m just one person, ‘What can I do!” My answer to that is, “what’s the difference between empathy and sympathy?” Well, sympathy is saying, “What can I do! I’m only one person.” Where empathy is saying, “WHAT CAN I DO?” I’m here to help, sign me up!” The answer is in the difference between the exclamation and the question; those who ask a question verse give an exclamation, are the ones who will generate the most impact. So, it reminds me of this quote by an unknown author, “To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.” NOW, “DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!” SIGN UP TO BE A MENTOR AND “BECOME THE DIFFERENCE”! GHANDI ONCE SAID, “We must become the change we seek!”
