The other night, my girls couldn’t get to sleep because they heard crickets in their bathroom. Finally, I agreed to check it out and after a little searching, I found 1 little, tiny, mutant cricket. Much to my surprise, there wasn’t a whole choir of crickets making music. There wasn’t an oversized bully cricket making noise. Instead, I found the smallest cricket I had ever seen, making a whole lot of noise. After I disposed of him properly (down the toilet), the noise ended and within a matter of minutes, my girls were fast asleep.
It made me stop and think: one voice really can make a difference. I tend to think in terms of “team” so much that I often discount the value of one voice. In fact, I often dismiss dreams and ideas because I’m only one voice. But if one cricket can keep my girls from sleeping, your one voice can make a difference. Don’t wait until you have a full choir singing your song, if you have a passion, a dream, an idea, be the one voice and wake up the world!
