What does it mean to Accept Rachel’s Challenge?
Rise to the Challenge
Be the Difference
Rachel’s last words come to us through an essay she wrote, just before her death. In it, she challenged us to, “Start a chain reaction”.
It begins with you. We have found that there are many ways one person can be the start of something big, something important, that makes a difference and changes people’s lives. And it’s simple. Give these actions a try – you just might start your own Chain Reaction.
Look for the best in others. Something worthwhile is always there, you only need to be willing to see it. Speak with kindness. It’s a choice – because you can’t always know what someone else is going through or experiencing. Chances are, if someone is being difficult, a little understanding and compassion will open a door. Choose positive influences and role models. The ideas and inputs you take in shape who you are. Curate your collection wisely. And above all, Dream Big. Anything is possible. Make goals and write them down, to make them real. Believe in yourself, and the power you have to affect your future and those around you. The hardships – and the opportunities – that you’ve been given are part of the journey. Where you go is up to you.
It’s your story. You can be the difference. Will you accept the challenge?
