Leaving a Legacy
“To inspire is to be inspired. To motivate is to be motivated. To encourage is to be encouraged. To influence is to be influenced, to educate is to want to make a difference and impact generations.” – Author: Natalee A. Johnson
Change Starts With Us
P4D believes in building stronger communities. Change starts by planting a seed.
“To live for change, is to reflect daily on what needs to be altered in ones life. To reflect daily is to dissect my life under a microscope and ask: What can I improve? To reflect is to look in the mirror and not turn away from the flaws, instead, embrace, self-correct and grow. To reflect and live for change is to ask questions such as: What Legacy will I leave behind? What impact will I have on others? What steps will I take forward? To reflect and live for change is to continuously assess, readdress and accept, there is always opportunities for growth. To live for change, is to make a difference in the life of someone else other than my own.” – © Natalee A. Johnson (2016)
Dreams are the seeds of change. Nothing ever grows without a seed, and nothing ever changes without a dream. – Debby Boone
Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.-Napolean Hill
