A rising tide lifts all boats


As close as we can calculate, John F. Kennedy is tied to the tide comment, but no matter who said it, ultimately - when you lift another up, you also lift yourself up. It's hard to dispute this.


I'm publishing this article off my usual posting schedule because of an article I read today on The Hustle. As we all freak out about toilet paper, mask shortages, and now dwindling meat supplies and murder hornets - there is a man in Gustavus, Alaska who is feeding his entire city: the local grocer.


1. One person CAN make a difference


Activism comes in different forms. It usually boils down to one person or maybe a couple of folks who just said, "I'll do something about this."


2. One person MUST step up and out in their courage


Guaranteed somewhere someone thinks the way Toshua Parker, the local grocer of Gustavus, could have done this differently. And to that person I have only one word, "Shh!"


Courageousness comes in different forms. It usually boils down to one person or maybe a couple of folks who just said, "I'll do something about this."


3. One person WILL lift themselves when they lift others


Setting out on choppy waters to help take care of his town, Parker knew he was the resource for 446 residents to get access to food and provisions.


Determination comes in different forms. It usually boils down to one person or maybe a couple of folks who just said, "I'll do something about this."


PERSON OF ACTION: What are you doing about 'something' today? Whose tide are you lifting today? What do you think the trustworthiness of Toshua Parker is in Gustavus? Do others consider you that trustworthy? Building trust starts with saying, "I'll do something about this" and then doing the work.


Warrior on,
