TRANSCRIPT:

So what is a doer? The simple answer to that is a doer is someone who does. Someone who takes action, who makes life happen.

In today’s day and age, it’s easier than ever to live our lives from the sideline. We can live vicariously through the photos of others.

With the rise of social media like Facebook and Snapchat and Instagram, we can take a ride on a gondola through the Venice canals. Or we can walk the Great Wall of China all within the same day.

We can go to a concert or we can watch the engagement of a loved one without even leaving our bed.

Now as great as this technology is and maybe, it fosters a culture of people that are content with experiencing the world without ever taking action, they’re content with living through the lens of others.

I believe that there are two types of people in this world. There are dreamers and then there are doers. The people that are willing to take action and make the world happen.

So what does a dreamer or a doer look like?

I really don’t have an answer to that question. But I am going to start by sharing a couple stories of doers and dreamers in my life to just show you that that’s not always what you may think.
