“ And only if you feel once in a while like a little lamb and you know that deep inside a lion is hidden, then please complete these sentences with me…you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will be as one . ”
From getting to giving, from waiting to creating, from competing to collaborating: Marcel Stoffels at TEDxRoermond.
You may say I’m a dreamer.
To my opinion in this world there are people with two types of characters. The lambs and the lions. The lambs are easy to recognize. I am certain that you know some lambs in your environment. A lamb is cute, bleats the whole day and stands with a hundred sheep in a bunch. Bleating and bleating and bleating. And what lies in grass where hundreds of sheep are? Exactly: shit! The main words that comes with lambs are: getting, waiting and competing.
A lion is even easier to recognize, but they are a little rare. This is the true leader, and not because he or she is saying so. The real lion has a purpose and that makes him a leader. The main words that comes with a lion is: giving, creating and collaborating.
And the most beautiful part of my story is, that every man and every woman has a lion hidden deep inside.
Tony Robbins says, everyone has two spiritual needs, which is the need to contribute, and the need to grow. This is the main reason for someone to tap into his deeper self and activate this lion to come out. The result is an amazing positive and magnetic flow, that will result in even greater things.
I’m dreaming of a world of more people who find and release the lion inside them. People who rise and start to create great things. Things that contribute to the society. Things that contribute to the world. People who do see that if you want to change the world, you’ve got to start with the man or woman in the mirror.
