Chapter 9 Spreading the Spark
Thursday, January 07, 2010
This last chapter is the easiest for me, at least on the site itself. I so want to help and encourage others the way it has been shown to me. I think of one of my favorite movies: Pay It Forward. This is what we are doing. It should be a natural response to give back. For me it is hard to share with family, they do not want to hear what I am going through or to know why. I do tell my friends, I have had 2 friends and one family member on my sons wife's side who joined. She never gave me the credit, but that is fine, at least she did join, but they have not been dedicated like me. But I tried, they have to take responsibility for there own life.
It is easy for me to reach out to others who blog for help or I see are in a rough place. Plus I like to welcome ones that blog day one. I put myself out there for them so they know they have someone here to help. I also look for people who do not have friends yet and add myself so they have one. Think that is why CHRIS DOES IT WHEN YOU JOIN TOO.
The big thing is taking the first step and reach out, after you do it and get a response back you like it and want to do more. I do it even without no response. I have a secret too for I have started to add so many friends, to keep them straight I add them to my address book there I can leave small note to remember who they are. I would get names very confused if I did not use this tool to help me.
I cannot believe I have finished the whole book already. I changed my page I got the idea from Nicole. It now says I have read the SPark. I will read it many times I know to remember and learn what I missed the first time.
Thank you Chris and all your team, Oh and Pat for showing you the first step, live by example. This is what I am doing here on this site and in my life. This has been a gift you cannot put a price on. Who knows how many days I have added on my life by doing this. Plus who knows the people that have been helped just by me taking this first step also.
