Because I Said I Would #becauseisaidiwould

because I said I would

How simple is that phrase, those words? Because I Said I Would…..

Who would have dreamed that phrase would go viral and a movement would take off in cyberspace!? This could not have happened at a better time for America….

From the website:

because I said I would is a social movement and nonprofit dedicated to the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. We are changing lives through Promise Cards, chapters of volunteers, character education in schools, and awareness campaigns with global reach. Learn more. Sparked by the loss of his father, Alex began sending promise cards to anyone who requested them at no cost. Since his father’s passing on September 4th, 2012, because I said I would has sent over 9.81M promise cards to more than 150 countries. Alex’s commitment to the betterment of humanity has inspired millions and his promises have been shared virally around the world.

So, my point here is this: I listened to  Alex Sheen speak the week before last (was it really just that week?) at the Keller Williams Realty Mega Camp in Austin, Texas, a real estate conference for our company. I had no idea of the fact Alex would be speaking let alone his mission. I was more than pleasantly surprised, I was completely and totally moved. In fact, he challenged my mind to keep up with his message. I had to do an internal rewind a few times to help me focus.

Because I Said I Would

What does that mean to you? I can tell you without a doubt that to Alex Sheen, it simply means sticking to your word, period. Making a promise to yourself and keeping your word to yourself is the most important step we can take.

Because I Said I Would…..
