Let’s start at the beginning. I love Andy Andrews’ writing. I consider him to be a brilliant storyteller and motivator. That being said I wanted to ding him a little bit on this one. The reason is simple. The Traveler’s Summit is a repackaging of his book The Final Summit, with some new writing added. I wanted to ding him, but I can’t. This book is great, fantastic, even. It is truly a follow up to The Traveler’s Gift. It looks at the future of humanity and what it will take to turn around. The main character meets with more great people from history but this time they must come together to find a solution to getting humanity back on track. Like a modern day parable, this book speaks to life today. I was on vacation and I read this book in about two days. It’s a great read, and highly worthwhile. My recommendation, if you’ve read The Final Summit, but it’s been a few years, get this book and read it. If you’ve never read The Final Summit, you don’t have to. This one is all of that and more. If you’ve never read The Traveler’s Gift, read that one first. These fictional books give real world suggestions and solutions for all that is going on today. This is one you don’t want to miss.

This goes along with the videos I’ve been making on the Seurat painting and is yet another attempt to show you how much you matter.

Watch the above clip by Andy Andrews, it is one of the most impressive things I have ever heard in my life. Andrews is a man who started off living under a pier at the age of 19 after losing both parents in a single year. While there he read over 200 biographies and noticed principles that changed his life. He now travels the country as one of the top motivational speakers in the U.S.

Every person I have ever met (and most of the ones I haven’t) needs to hear this message. It shows how a single act of kindness and bravery saved the lives of over 2,000,000,000 people.

Still think you don’t matter? Still think what you do doesn’t matter. Live intentionally and make the most of every opportunity God gives. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! YOU WERE CREATED TO!
