Choosing not to be invisible

The DoormanThe choices we make have an impact. Small choices have the power to influence others in ways we can’t even begin to imagine. Months ago I saw a video called The Doorman about a young man named Josh Yandt who’d been depressed and bullied. After moving to a new high school he made the choice that he would no longer be invisible, and he took the “small” action to hold the door open for all the students of his new school. At first the kids looked at him quizzically, unsure of his motives. But then, things changed, and not only did his life shift but he changed the culture of his school.

A simple act of his kindness changed lives.

Wanting to understand why he’d made this choice and what he envisioned would become possible because of it, I reached out to interview him for my new podcast called “Choose – Exploring what’s possible.”

My vision for this new podcast is to share the stories of amazingly ordinary people who make a choice that creates a ripple effect. I have a strong knowing that part of my mission is to collect and share the stories of many different people and the ramifications of their choices so I can show others what’s possible for them.

If you’re drawn to Josh and his story and want to be a part of his mission to give victims of bullying a renewed sense of hope and purpose, please support him.
