    In our world of abundance people need to step up and take action. The key is not to do something when you are feeling motivated but to do something when you are not motivated to do it. It is disrespectful to the people around you to not do absolutely everything you possibly can to contribute to society and be the best you can be. You will find accountability and support from people who believe in you. The information you spew will always be less important than the presentation you give. That is what will set your unique voice apart from everyone else.
