The concept of SEE is to start taking stock of what is around you– in your personal space and the environment; all that you come into contact with. Look at the everyday items that you use and touch, the actions taking place that you may not have noticed before or may have taken for granted. When you stop for a brief moment to appreciate what nature and the world has to offer, you will have a better opportunity to see first-hand how you are having an impact each day.
When you open your eyes and look at experience from a new perspective, you finally get a chance to see all the pieces that have been missed in the puzzle of life. Your focus then gets turned toward the challenges and issues that you can change and help inspire, instead of becoming overwhelmed by the big picture. Being able to make small differences is just the start in being the solutionary that the world needs.
This shift can grow a seed inside you that can then be passed on to others in your circle of friends, or possibly those you meet on your journey of life. By taking a moment to SEE what the possibilities are, you are already making a conscious choice to make that change for the better; the better you, for a better world, toward your better self.
