Where Change Begins

I received a scary email this morning.

It said that someone I know of (I can’t say I know him personally, but I do know his children) is going to run for president. Believe me, knowing his children, this is not a man who you want running the country. But he says he’s tired of complaining and wants to change the corruption taking place in D.C.

Okay, it’s obvious right from the beginning that this man isn’t going to make it far. Why? He’s bitten off more than he can chew. He wants to jump right into the top position without “taking care of his own back yard.”

We all know there’s no such thing as an overnight success. Even people that find themselves suddenly famous have worked for hours before the world finds them. No one shoots to the top of the best-seller list without first writing the book.

As artists, we have something we want to say to the world. Are you building this in your own backyard first? Remember, you are the change you want to see in the world.
