On the verge of turning 40, an unhappy Manhattan yuppie is roped into joining his two friends on a cattle drive in the southwest. You may remember the famous scene in the 1991 movie “City Slickers” when Curly (Jack Palance) has the following exchange with Mitch (Billy Crystal):
Finding Our One Thing
As Curly said to Mitch in the above scene; “One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don’t mean sh##t. But what is the one thing?“ said Mitch. Curly’s answer? That’s what you have to find out.”
We’ve found ours —and we’re going to “stick to that”. Two simple words: more hope. Living a hopeful life is to recognize that everything and everyone matters. That includes you since you are part of the hopefulness in the world. Taking care of yourself matters. The quality of the work you do matters. It matters how you are treated and how you treat others. Each one of us is a small mirror of talents, love, and joy that we have to offer each other to create our world. So hope is energy —your positive energy, your talents, value, and your soul. It is the lifeblood of the human race. And it’s not just about finding your one thing; it’s about walking the talk ↓
Finding Your One Thing
What about your “One Thing”? Why not become a beacon of hope? Right now, it feels like a moment in history where choices made will have a ripple effect for generations to come. Whether you’re a partner, friend, parent, leader, teacher, politician, or a combination thereof, we are called to show up and do more good to help fuel a better version of the world we live in. One thing. One voice. One gesture. One uplifting word of encouragement. One ripple. Because hope matters. Let hope become your “One thing”. Your superpower. Starting today. Starting right now.
It is time for you to shine so that others may draw hope, strength, and courage from YOUR light, and learn to let their own light shine.
