To AFFECT someone is to INFLUENCE someone in such a way as to produce a change in ACTION, THOUGHT, or BEHAVIOR an overall TRANSFORMATION. When Chadwick Boseman was a student in college he had an opportunity to go to a special acting class in Oxford. He didn’t have the money, so his acting teacher, a friend of Denzel Washington, asked Denzel if he would give the money to her acting student. Denzel did, after several years the student, Boseman, is the star in the biggest grossing movie ever, The Black Panther.
The AFFECT, the INFLUENCE goes further, this is evident to Boseman from social media that his lead role is AFFECTING and INFLUENCING young children around the world, that they too can become important in life. This INFLUENCE, to young children, originated from a stranger who TRANSFORMED another from just a donation.
Giving someone just words of ENCOURAGEMENT, saying YES YOU CAN, or NO THIS IS NOT DIFFICULT or JUST BE BETTER TODAY THAN YOU WERE YESTERDAY can be enough to TRANSFORM them to be the leaders of tomorrow.
It does not have to be someone you know, as with Boseman and Denzel. It could be a colleague or a stranger on the street. Being able to TRANSFORM someone is why we are here. As Picasso has said; “The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.”
What an indescribable feeling it is to be able to TRANSFORM SOMEONE. TO BE ABLE TO SEE THEM IN A POSITION OF STANDING AND QUALITY IS THE PAYMENT.
TRANSFORM SOMEONE AND BE THE WEALTHIEST PERSON ON EARTH. THAT IS YOUR GIFT TO OTHERS AND YOURSELF.

And you my friend give your gifts away everyday….and lucky are those of us fortunate enough to receive them and have the opportunity to then do the same for others! 💜
Finding fulfillment in sharing and encouraging others, is what gives me purpose and meaning in life. From the spirit of giving it away, in order to , “get it”, I walk, LIVING FULLY.
