Are You Up for the Challenge?

Yes, it’s a challenge because there’s a commitment involved, but the core of it all is blessings. Will you commit to blessing at least one person every day for the next thirty (30) days?

I’ve learned many things over the past 6 years, and one key learning is that none of us receive enough blessings – in the past or now. We live in a world (sadly) where blessings are too few and often conditional. I recently spoke to a group of young people and had them tell one other person the following:

You’re Not Alone!

You’re Enough!

I Believe in You!

At the end, nearly 70% (including the adults) said that they’d never been told that before in their life. Last week I was just about to give a speech to an area business group, when a friend sent me a text to let me know they were thinking about me. The text finished with these words: “I believe in you.” Those four words deeply touched me, and I’m committing to blessing at least one (1) person in the same way, every day for the next 30 days, and I will do so in a very specific way.

First, I will tell them that “I believe in you.” Second, I will specifically tell them why I believe in them. I will share with them the beauty, gifts, talents, love, passion, purpose, etc. that I see in them. I may do it in person. I may to it by phone. I may do it via text or email, but I WILL do it and it will be specific. Telling someone that you believe in them is rare enough, but telling them why you believe in them may be the greatest gift you can give another person.

Listen in as I share my vision for the Blessing Challenge and read on below for more details!

Will you join me? There are no other rules or expectations. You’re not required to check in with me or anyone else, but you’ll know if you did it or not. I’ll be writing and posting about my experience and you’re welcome to join in the sharing, but there’s not expectation or requirement.

Just one thing – it’s 30 different people. Yes, those people closest to us can certainly use many blessings, but the commitment is to bless a different person (“I believe in you”) every day for the next 30 days. And to tell them why you believe in them! Let them know what you see in them. If you offer this gift to more than one person a day, then what a bonus for them and for the world.

Imagine how the person receiving this will feel. Imagine how you will feel in giving this precious blessing gift to 30 people. Imagine a group of people with the daily habit of blessing the people around them (friends, family, team members, partners, and even strangers). Imagine how these blessings will change things, change perspectives and even change lives. I can feel it. Can you feel it?

Are you in? If so, then all you have to do is say “I’m in” in the comments below. I hope you’ll join me on this blessing opportunity. People are waiting for you to believe in them and to let them know it. And so it begins!

I Believe in You
