Books! Books! Books! One thing I can never get enough of! Can you? I hope not, because incredible books just keep finding their way to me, and this month's pick is no exception.
Dare to Matter is written by the founder of a charitable organization called VisionSpring that provides new, low-cost eye glasses to people in developing countries, Jordan Kassalow. It is co-written by professional speaker, and rabbi, Jennifer Krause. I consider it a how-to guide to start making a difference in the world.
I love this. I'm thinking of it as a sort of companion guide to my book, One Heart At A Time. In it, I share my belief that it's possible to make a positive impact on the world with simple deeds and actions, thereby causing a ripple effect.
In Dare to Matter: Your Path to Making a Difference Now, Kassalow and Krause, who live by the advice they provide, give those who are asking "But HOW?!" solid ideas and inspiration. I am united with these authors in the belief that whatever your circumstances, whatever your time (or lack thereof), whatever your commitments (or over commitments) you can STILL make a positive, impactful, difference in the world! No more waiting, or wanting, or talking yourself out of it.
Through what they call "a series of small steps and daily dares" this duo shares their proven strategies for you to break out of the mindset of someone who "wishes they could" and become someone who "does" make a difference in their community and the world.
Pick up Dare to Matter, I dare ya! (Bet you didn't see that coming.) Let's make a difference. Together, NOW!
