|“From a little spark may burst a flame.” (Dante Alighieri)
As big as some fires get, we must remember this: they all started with an initial spark.
As successful as some people and companies are, much like the fire…it all began with a spark.
Sometimes, when things seem dark, and momentum slows to a crawl, all that is needed is (you guessed it): a spark.
A revolution can begin with a new idea, perspective, creation, invention, viewpoint, etc. Stale norms are left in the dust, new life is breathed into an old idea, or are wiped away by new technology.
How long has it been since you read an encyclopedia? The advent of the internet (thank you for the spark, Al Gore) has all but wiped them off the face of the educational map.
Sent a telegram lately? Bought a black & white TV?
How long has it been since you played a record on your turntable?
These things didn’t just happen.
Someone, or a team of someones, emitted a spark that landed among the perfect conditions for a flame to be born.
Are you ready and willing to cast a spark today? Before you get frightened from the pressure, don’t worry. You don’t need to rock the world.
The flame which your spark inspires could light the way for someone who is lost.
It could provide warmth for a soul stuck in the cold.
It could ignite a firestorm that changes the world.
And that’s the beauty of a spark.
It only takes…one.
