The world has changed for today's youth. We have young people graduating with degrees that cannot find work, despite their degree and massive student debt. We live in a changed world. While some would believe there is a lack of opportunity, it is actually quite the opposite. It's been stated that over 65% of the work that will be done by today's youth has not been created yet. Here is a perfect, out of the box example that demonstrates how we must learn to THINK differently, and create our own opportunities. We are not in the industrial age any longer, yet our educational systems are still hanging on to conventional thinking. We must start educating our youth for success in the 21st century. Click on this video clip above to be inspired to think differently.....we must teach youth to be the CREATORS of their own work, rather than the victims of underemployment.
A Detroit man clearly demonstrates what commitment and pushing through adversity looks like. His long 21 mile WALK to work is something most would not be willing to do. James is grateful for the job he has, and will not let any challenge stop him from having perfect attendance at work. This wonderful new fundraising campaign is a result of his commitment to do what it takes for as long as it takes....when you live this, good things come back to you....
The banker, the student, the car dealership, and society.....all a domino effect of how 1 person can start something to make a difference in the lives of others!
