Will Rogers said, “We can’t all be heroes, because somebody has to sit on the curb and applaud when they go by.”
And, while I think Will had a valid point, Holly Near‘s song “Change of Heart” offers a perception I believe Will would agree with. To paraphrase it: Our hearts and minds change when we participate in empowering the lives of those around us. In addition, when we observe others’ acts of kindness, we are further inspired.
So I believe Will would agree with me when I say the two roles, hero and curb sitter, in his statement, shift and revolve many times in the cycle of our lives. Sometimes we are the curb sitters, applauding loudly and enthusiastically for the brave ones who take the chances and change the lives of others with action or deed. Other times it is we who are the ones heralded, noted and admired for the valor or voice we have demonstrated.
Yet at our fingertips is the opportunity to make our energy felt, for a platform as accessible as Facebook makes it possible for any of us to stand wherever we wish in Will’s rumination, and to grab the mantle of impactful engagement to which Holly inspires us to in her song.
So, whichever part you are now playing in your performance of this magnificent human showcase, execute your role with intention and it will be guaranteed to be significant.
Are you ready for a change of heart?
