Why We Do What We Do

 

If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood and sweat and tears.” (Simon Sinek)

Many people are asking us at MIG, “What is in it for you?” “Why are you doing this?” We live in a society where there is always a hidden agenda. It is very interesting what we teach ourselves. Is it “unnatural” for someone to genuinely want to contribute to the world without any expectation of something in return. When the concept of The Card was introduced, I wasn’t sure if anyone was going to do it. It was a social experiment amongst a small community and some friends. Anyone can do an act of kindness. The origination of the concept was not to take credit for all of the genuine acts of kindness being done across the globe. The challenge issued with The Card is not to receive the gift and just be grateful. The Card is a call to action. The true joy comes from giving the gift 100% of the time, not receiving it. Don’t be the weak link. The one who gets stuck with The Card is the person missing out on true joy. If it is sitting in your wallet or the dashboard of your car, it is calling out to you to give it away. You may be paralyzed and fearful about getting out of your comfort zone to share The Card. “What will this stranger think of me?” “I’m not this type of person.” “I can’t do something this different.” Henry Ford said; “Maybe you can or you can’t; either way your right.” If I can accept the challenge to get out of my comfort zone, than you can too. I hope to share many experiences via this blog that will uplift and inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and step into the shoes of someone that makes a difference, one individual at a time.
