The more I reflected on that meeting and the experience at MRZ, I was even more impressed This generation wants to be better. They don't want to make the same mistakes we made and they will soak up information and knowledge. It is so easy to influence and to be a person of influence with a generation and audience around you that is seeking it out.
To the Millennials at MRZ, Royalwood Church and in my family, thank you for being so receptive to and seeking out influence. It takes on several shapes, forms and definitions. Coaching, mentoring, guiding, counseling and many others, but in the end, it is one person influencing the life of another. Thank you! You have motivated me to give back more than I ever have.
To all of the non-Millennials, stop complaining already! Roll with it and influence a life.
