The Starfish Story

We all have the opportunity to help create positive change, but if you’re like me, you sometimes find yourself thinking, “I’m already really busy, and how much of a difference can I really make?” I think this is especially true when we’re talking about addressing massive social problems like tackling world hunger or finding a cure for cancer, but it pops up all of the time in our everyday lives, as well. So when I catch myself thinking that way, it helps to remember this story.

One of the most common reasons we hold back from doing the good we can is because we see the challenge before us as overwhelming and insurmountable. A good way to counter that is to break the big challenge down into smaller pieces and then take those one at a time – like one starfish at a time.  And to that one starfish, it can make a world of difference.
