    HI Tom,

    Happy to read you’re still curious, never lose that and your life will forever be an unfolding wonder. It’s true that not having lived the life of others will cause us to question or ask how can I help when I have no idea of what they’re going through but that doesn’t mean we can’t have compassion for them or even offer what help we can. You never know what help offered can be the cause of change in someones life. At 55 I’m still a child at heart, I’m still curious, I still question and I still smile at strangers and say hello as we cross paths. And yes, I still ask why; why, when there’s so much in the world so many still have so little? I believe many of us have lost our way, we’ve not only listen to others words but we’ve made them our own without even realizing it and now we ask why, why am I here?
    Thank you for your article, I will pass this on to my friends, family and specially to my children. There are times when listening to others words may be important and it’s with that in mind that I will share yours; who knows maybe my kids will listen.

      Thanks for reading the article, along with your feedback and your wisdom Jose! You’re absolutely right; “You never know what help offered can be the cause of change in someones life.”

      When I talk about impacting the world, that’s exactly what I mean. And that we only need to worry about impacting the world around us – those we come into contact with throughout our lives. And, we can make an enormous difference in the world, simply by impacting one person. That’s all it takes.

      Thanks for sharing the article too Jose! You might also recommend that the kids look at the “Students” page on the site under “Who I help?” if they’re still trying to figure out what they should study for school and their life’s work.

      And happy to hear that you still have your curiosity and childlike sense of wonder! It’s one of the greatest abilities and assets we have as human beings.

      Thanks again Jose!
