Thrive. Connect. Contribute

Positive stories of resilient people who thrive in life, connect with others, and contribute to the world in the face of adversity.

Who do you know who is modeling resilience during difficult times?

Have you heard any good stories lately? In this critical time, we are surrounded by acts of heroism, both large and small.

I want to introduce you to the podcast, Thrive. Connect. Contribute.

Here is What You Will Hear:

I am sharing stories of resilient people. Here are three examples.

Episode 3: How I Overcame Anxiety, Found the Purpose of Life, and Lived a Year of Personal Bests. If you’ve been wondering “What happened to Tony?” This answers the question. It’s been quite a year.

Episode 4: These Children Show Us How to Connect with Others in a Time of Crisis. I interview a 10-year-old boy and his 7-year-old sister. They launched a new podcast so that kids can learn and have fun.

Episode 10: Crowdsource Kindness During the COVID-19 Crisis with Morgan Schmidt. According to Morgan, the world is full of kind people. She found a way to crowdsource kindness.

What I’m Doing During the COVID-19 Crisis

I’m looking for these stories. I’ll bet you have heard stories like this. And, I’ll also bet that you have stories from your life.

In the middle of this pandemic, I feel compelled to do this.

I am calling for stories. Here’s how it works.

You can nominate a story that you heard from someone else, or you can tell your own story.

Why “Thrive. Connect. Contribute.”?

Last year I did a personal experiment called “My Year of Personal Bests.” If I boiled the entire year-long experience into one phrase, it would be this:

You are here on earth to connect with others and contribute to the world. But before you can connect and contribute, you must first practice self-care. In other words, you must thrive. Thrive. Connect. Contribute. In that order.

Take Control of Your Destiny

So, help me out, will you? Let’s find and tell the stories of people who are thriving, connecting, and contributing in the face of adversity.

Nominate someone to tell their story. Or, let us know about the story you have to tell.

We need these stories now more than ever.
