“One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked, he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.
Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, ‘I’m saving these starfish, Sir.’
The old man chuckled aloud, ‘Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?’
The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said, “It made a difference to that one!’”
Never let the size of the task or the challenge stop you from starting. Even small victories add up to massive change. A little kindness goes a long way. Start investing in people, they will give you the greatest reward.
Because you are valuable and worth “saving”!
