“Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire.” – St Catherine of Siena

What do you burn for?

Is it your family, career or a cause?

What makes your heart sing?

Is it moving closer to your dream?

What sparks your inspiration?

Is it realizing your purpose or the reason you were made?

Just One Spark

With each natural disaster, hungry stomach or violent act, the flame gets dimmer. But there is hope; there is hope because of you. You are the secret weapon; the perfect antidote for an ailing world.

When you burn for something, you can make a difference. You can set the world on fire.

It doesn’t take much to start the flame – it takes just one spark as small as:

– Respect everyone you meet.
– Pay it forward.
– Speak with your actions.
– Be fully present with family and friends.
– Practice your values.
– Be kind.
– Acknowledge your worth.
– When someone falls, extend your hand.
– Live from your heart.
– Believe in the goodness of others.
– Count your blessings.
– Be true to who you are.
– Praise before you criticize.
– Create a legacy.
– Share your happiness.

Setting the World on Fire

I burn for my purpose; for the reason I was made. I want every dream that lives inside of me to see the light of day.

I want to set the world on fire with my words; by reminding others of their worth and by being a messenger for love, kindness and hope.

I burn for something bigger than me, but it’s up to me to fan the spark.

What about you? What’s your passion?

You don’t need to wait for the perfect time or for the perfect opportunity. You were born with the fire already inside. Is it time ignite it? Is it time to fan the spark and let the flames touch the sky?

Do you have a masterpiece, a book or a message to share with the world? Do you have a thought, an invention or an idea that will change the world?

Now, more than ever, the world needs your passion, your fire; and your desire to burn for something.

Go ahead – set the world on fire.
