Many people run around saying, “I’m going to change the world!”

Please partner with Hope Floats to change the world for just one of our homeless veteran heroes. They may have fallen, but they are not forgotten. Our veteran community gives hope and a hand up to stop veterans committing suicide.

Margaret Mead

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead.

Many people run around saying, “I’m going to change the world!”

These people can be delusional to a fault. There IS usefulness to delusion, because delusion allows you to sometimes get through things most people say you can’t get through.

Most Entrepreneurs are delusional, and if it wasn’t for possibility thinkers, the impossible would never get accomplished. BUT, having said this, there is a difference between POSSIBILITY and PROBABILITY.

If you get so caught up in possibility, you sometimes end up never making anything happen.

You don’t build a great reputation by talking about what you’re going to do;

You build a great reputation by actually doing it. When people keep insisting they are going to change the world, my question to them is this:

“Have you changed ONE person?”

Start with ONE and go from there.

Hope Floats: To transform this world, we must become ever more community
led—beginning with ourselves. And you? What are you willing to give? What are you serving? Who are you helping? If your life were a ransom, how many would it save?

Remember: acts of service don’t have to be grand or glamorous. They can be small,

Only when communities are in the driver’s seat of change will we be able to solve the world’s most entrenched problems—homelessness, PTSD, racism, poverty,
inequality—and unleash brighter futures for everyone, regardless of the place they call home. Hope Floats looks at change as fuel for growth and unlimited possibility.

So this year and the 20 years that follow, long after we are gone, lead us to the change you want to see.

HOW WOULD YOU CHANGE THE WORLD?

Let’s try a thought experiment, one that is forward-looking.

If I were to give you $1 BILLION dollars and ask you to do something to make the world a better place, what would you do with it? Sitting on the beach is not an option... sorry!

Would you start a company? Would you invest it in research? Would you give it all away, and if so, to whom?

Understanding the type of impact you want to make is a great way to find your passion.

Make a list of 3 ways in which you would invest $1 BILLION dollars to make the world a better place:

1. ______________________________________

2. ______________________________________

3. ______________________________________
Reach out and let us know? We will add it to our list!
With gratitude for your partnership, leadership and vision! Damon R. Huffman
