Yesterday I went to see a movie with my family. It was an Indian movie called Jai Ho. This movie included an actor named Salman Khan. Not his biggest fan but boy was it inspiring. There was a great lesson in this movie that I hope all of us can maintain in our everyday lives. This movie really inspired me, and I hope this inspires you as well. If you are going to take time to read any of my blogs I request it be this one.
The movie started out with a man who helped someone else. The person said thank you and the response is not what you would think. The response was: don’t say thank you to me, help three other people and ask them to help three more people. This chain had started and it was absolutely amazing what it started. Since this was a big Bollywood movie that many people all across India will be seeing. I want this idea, not just to be in India but it to be all over the world. Think about it this way. If everyone who is reading or ever liked my blog, which is about 400 people went with this ideology, that would be 400 times 3 which would be 1200 and it would go on and on from there.
Now I know what many of you are thinking, this will take too long to do. Why bother. Well if you are thinking this than put yourself in someone who might need your help’s shoes. If you needed help you would want someone to come and help you. No one is ever too busy to help someone in need. You can be doing the smallest thing like helping a sibling with homework, or having a conversation with someone at work or at school that you see is not having a good time. An example that I even did was, someone who was on crutches and having trouble getting in to the restroom, I just held the door for her. Everyone including myself gets caught up in what we need and don’t think about anyone else. The change starts with us.
Many people believe that change is not possible with just me. Well if you start the change in your area, you will be helping millions of people just by helping three. That is what I call amazing. One person can make the change. The person who makes the change, is the person who has the courage. Courage is one of the biggest strength someone can have. If you look out your window you will see many people that need help. Just helping three will make a difference, but who says you have to stop at 3?
“If you are lucky enough to help someone take the chance and be the change.”
