I firmly believe that even the most selfish person has a deep desire to make a difference in the lives of people around them. But most of us feel overwhelmed by that thought, incapable of knowing what tangible thing we could do to show love and care to people and communities. In the place of this we end up watching other people’s lives on social media, further burrowing ourselves in a mound of shame wondering why that isn’t us.
Today I restart my podcast after a few months off to talk with Justin Zoradi. He and I have been connected to each other for over a decade by working together at The Mentoring Project. I have an immense amount of respect for Justin as someone who has leveraged his life to impact thousands of others. I believe you can have that kind of impact on others too, and Justin has some helpful thoughts on not only what allowed him to step into that kind of life, but how you can too.
