Is it foolish to believe that a small number of people can actually make a difference? Were the founding Fathers of the United States foolish for wanting a new way of life? Is that example too far removed to be relevant? What about examples that are occurring right now in Egypt and Libya--those individuals are willing to fight for their beliefs, even pay the ultimate sacrifice.
"Never doubt that a small group of people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead
One person can make a difference, but you must have the “strength of conviction” to achieve your dreams. Individuals, who set out to make a difference, start off with a vision--a vision of a better world. They then have the conviction to try and achieve that vision. These individuals suffered; they had setbacks; they even lost their way from time to time, but ultimately with the “strength of conviction,” they found a way to achieve their vision and the world is a better place for it.
What if the following individuals (just to name a few) did not have the “strength of conviction” to pursue their vision to continue in a course of action without regard to discouragement, opposition or previous failure? Picture a world without Gandhi, Dr. M.L. King, Dr. Albert Einstein, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, or Margaret Thatcher? How about two modern-day figures: Bill Gates or Steve Jobs?
This Healthcare “Think Tank,” “Impetus for Change,” is dedicated to a vision of a world where healthcare enhances the lives of the people we touch--a place where people live in balance and healthcare is just not about the “Care”. Our business is about saving lives or improving the quality of life of individuals.
However, the sad fact is, bureaucracy is getting in the way of that very vision. The POLITICS. The GREED.
There are real problems in our healthcare system, but there are also professionals that can solve these problems. Should we rely upon politicians to craft legislation that doesn’t address the real problems that are out there or should we stand up and take responsibility for what is ours to fix?
