Sketch of Day 7 (8/17): Hearts and Heat

“If you can’t make them see the light, make them feel the heat.” -Ronald Reagan


IYLAers are feeling the heat on the sunny New Jersey beaches today. It’s a beautiful day for relaxation and reflection. And today I want to share mine.

As young leaders, we go out into the world with the determination to be an example; a role model, someone others look to for inspiration. However, we soon find that not everyone shares or comprehends a vision as big as our own and as a result we start thinking...maybe this global vision is not worth chasing. Some may choose to settle for “someday”. Some settle for recognizing their dream as just that, a beautiful dream, something that could never happen “in my lifetime”.
