OK. I’ll admit it. I was excited about the premiere of Fox’s new reality series ‘Secret Millionaire’. For those of you who have a million and one better things to do, I’ll fill you in: a few Millionaires willingly give up their status to go undercover to live in poverty. They meet other people and at the end reveal that they really aren’t who they say they are, and they give a deserving person $100,000 of their own money.
I’m a sucker for reveal shows, and as I sit here watching this, I realize, ‘arent we all capable of doing something similar’?
What do you have, a skill, a talent, a connection, or some other item in your life that you might take for granted? Something that’s a part of who you are, be it a group of friends, good business connections, or a higher than usual knowledge of social media?
What if we all noticed a little more those around us who we could benefit with things that are commonplace in our lives? How much would it mean to someone else to provide them something that we have and can stand to share?
In this economy and holiday season, take a closer look around and consider reaching out and giving back something. You’d be amazed how much it is appreciated, and what it could blossom into.
