Many have asked, what does it take to be an alarm clock for your team, your family, your organization, or for the one in the mirror….it takes choice. Do you have it in you? We all do, few choose to act.
Ben Franklin said, “There are some who are immovable, there are some that are moveable, then there are some that move.”
Are you ready to move, and be the one person that people remember as the one they long to remember, the one who picked them up when they are down, the one who made them laugh, or even the one that made them cry?
Consider the thought of the “breaking news alert”, or major events in the world or in your life….when those extra ordinary events occur we actually wake up and realize the important things in life are all around us. At times of tragedy, we pull ours families closer and appreciate life. When the extra ordinary becomes just ordinary we fade back to the banality of living….we fade back to sleep.
What if that could be different? What if instead of awakening only when the news hits the headlines, we wake every day with the knowledge of how special this day is? What if you or I could be the one to be the headlines and touch people every day to “wake up” and live this day like it is meant to be lived?
Human alarm clocks are like that….they pass us by on the street and touch us with a smile, a genuine good morning, a holding of the door, a compliment, a moment of engagement that brightens our day. We can all be human alarm clocks if we so choose…it takes a concerted effort to be such a clock, and when we are the world around us changes and so do we.
