I talk and write a lot about fulfilment and purpose. About finding the genius in the place of convergence between your unique purpose and effective implementation.
But here’s the thing: Most of us desire a deeply fulfilled, purposeful life. Yet when the opportunity comes to access that, we let it pass us by. Maybe the opportunity didn’t seem grand enough. Maybe it was inconvenient. Maybe we simply didn’t recognise it. We forget that true, sustained greatness is not built on the grand mountain-tops for all to see, but is forged in the small steps taken consistently in the hidden moments.
It is a widely recognised scientific fact that we are at our happiest and most fulfilled when we are serving others, or a cause greater than ourselves.
And so allow me to present an opportunity for you. It is small; there will be no grand applause. It is inconvenient; it will cost you something. And it will offer you in return one small step toward a greater sense of purpose, meaning and fulfilment :
On 25th April, Nepal was hit by a severe earthquake that led to massive destruction and loss of life. Nepal is one of the poorest nations in the world, with already depleted infrastructure. There is now immense strain on resources for shelter, food, water, sanitation, health care. An earthquake of that magnitude in a nation so poor is not a one-off event; there are on-going repercussions including the spread of disease and economic disaster.
My colleague has recently witnessed the piles of foreign aid that are sitting on the tarmac in Kathmandu waiting for an avenue to distribute it. This is just one reason why I am so happy to partner with Metamorphic: we have 80 local community leaders on the ground in Nepal, prepared and ready to distribute help where it is needed most. We have already begun distributing food and shelter, and our local leaders have been trained and equipped to work with their communities to help them rebuild for a brighter future.
This is your opportunity to be a part of the answer! Visit the Metamorphic Nepal Appeal page now to donate. All donations over $2 are tax deductible, and all funds raised go to Nepal.
