While looking through the #younglife on Instagram I stumbled across someone pretty incredible. BC Serna (@bc_serna) is a Story Teller, Activist, Film Maker, Youth Speaker, World Traveler and YL Leader. Look through a few of his pictures and videos and you can't help but fall in love with him. One of his writings got me thinking. You know how people often say, "Someday I hope I can change just one person's life"? I think that's setting our sights awfully low. Tonight I watched a room full of people each impact a dozen people's lives. BC has a better way of thinking...
"The next definition of a billionaire is not one who has a billion dollars, but one who has positively affected the lives of a billion people. Where wealth are smiles of Joy, investment is radical love, retirement are these memories of purpose, currency is giving of time and financial freedom is to live free of financial mindset. Setting out to make money will leave you unsatisfied and alone, setting out to make an impact will leave you fulfilled and driven. Who wants to be a billionaire? How many lives can we positively impact in our lifetime?"
Everyone that gathered tonight can say that they've changed the life of more than one person. We're working on becoming billionaires one person--with one note, one act of love, one hug, one kind word-- at a time.
I'm so thankful for these people, a community that is passionate about loving each other well and pointing back to Christ with our stories. Thank you to all of the people that filled up my love tank tonight. You each mean so much to me.
