We Are The World

Yes you and me, “We Are The World.” If you have anything of value to offer to others that you think could make a difference in the lives of others. What is value? I’m glad you asked. When I think of value I think of so many things. You can add value to somebody’s life by just simply giving a warning about a bad experience that you had in life that didn’t turn out to be so favorable to you. Value can be giving others advice about vacationing, shopping, health and wellness, religion, sports or advice about that least little thing that you think is insignificant to you or anybody else.

Every time somebody like one of my articles or become a follower, I realize more and more how we can make a major impact on the world if we just share what we have. My Pastor J.A. Grant used to always say, “Start Where You Are, Do What You Can and Use What You Got.” He used to tell us all of the time, “That We Could Very Well Miss A Blessing Right In Front of Us Because We’re Looking To Far Down The Road.”

Start right where you are, right now. Don’t wait til you move or til things get better for you. You don’t have to have a home by the sea or an apartment in a sky rise with the best view in town. The view that you see outside can either be your view of motivation because you don’t like what you see. The view that you see can also be a motivator for you to accomplish and acquire what you see. Or you can do what I do most of the time. Most of the time when I look out my window, I envision how I can make what I see better and more beneficial for others.

Oh don’t get it twisted and think that I don’t want improvement for my life. I do. But I also believe, I can have anything in life that I want, if I help enough other people get what they want. So, I Am The World too.

Use what you got. If you only have a pen and paper, use it. Start putting your thoughts, feelings and experiences on paper. You will never be able to remember everything. If you want to become a photographer and the only camera you have is the one on your cell phone, use it. If you have an idea about something and you just can’t get it off of your mind, start doing as much research as you can on the matter. You would be totally amazed at what you can find to help get your idea up and running.

Do what you can. You can only do so much as an individual person, no matter what your resources are. Whatever it is that you have to offer, do something EVERYDAY to get better at it until you figure it out.

I once heard motivational speaker Les Brown say, “Cemeteries are the most riches places in the world, because so many people die with their ideas, books, visions and goals still inside of them.” Don’t undermine yourself, You Have Something To Offer. You Are The World.

I didn’t want to finish this blog and then wish I would’ve added the words to the song, so here you are. Read them and let them sink deep down into your soul.

We Are the World
There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all
We can’t go on
Pretending day-by-day
That someone, somewhere soon make a change
We’re all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know, love is all we need
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
Oh, send them your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
Oh, there’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
Well, well, well, well let us realize
Oh, that a change can only come
When we stand together as one, yeah, yeah, yeah
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and mee
We are the world (are the world)
We are the children (are the children)
We are the ones who’ll make a brighter day, so let’s start giving (so let’s start giving)

We are the ones who’ll make a brighter day so let start giving (so let’s start giving)
There’s a choice we’re making

We are the children (are the children)
We are the ones who’ll make a brighter day so let’s start giving (so let’s start giving)
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me
We are the world, we are the world (are the world)
We are the children, yes sir (are the children)
We are the ones that make a brighter day so let’s start giving (so let’s start giving)
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me, ooh-hoo!
We are the world (dear God) (are the world)
We are the children (are the children)
We are the ones that make a brighter day so let’s start giving (all right, can you hear what I’m saying?)
There’s a choice we’re making, we’re saving our own lives
