Happy Monday!
Been taking a break for the past few weeks, as I closed on the purchase of my first house and pondering on the future of this newsletter as finding a new story each week can be cumbersome. Until then, have a great story for you this week…
In 1927, a thirty-two-year-old man stood on the edge of the lake in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, planning to drop beneath the dark waters and drown. His daughter had died, his company had gone bankrupt, his reputation had been ruined, and he was becoming an alcoholic.
Looking into the lake, he asked himself what one small man in his position could possibly do. Then an answer came to him: he was now free to take risks, to initiate action on his own, and, by doing so, to help other people. He returned home and committed himself to the work that he believed the universe wanted him to do, instead of what he had been taught to do.
He watched the laws of the natural world and altered his own living patterns accordingly, eventually changing his life completely. Those laws were to inspire and support him in his greatest achievements. But without his believing and taking a chance, his contributions to humanity would never have been made, and no one would have come to respect the name of Buckminster Fuller.
Buck went on to become a visionary inventor and architect. He invented the Geodesic dome and popularized many terms including “Spaceship Earth”.
Sometimes we need to take control of our lives and not sit around for fate to come knocking at our door. We simply need to believe we have the power within us and harness that energy to make change in the world.
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
