One Thing Is All It Takes


Tom Corley boats - crop

One word of advice. One mentor. One cheerleader. One opportunity given. One victory. One illuminating insight.

All it takes, sometimes, is just one thing. One thing that completely alters the trajectory of your life’s journey.

That one thing is a blessing.

We all need that one thing that forces us to turn, completely changing the direction of our lives. That one thing which forever sets in stone your purpose. A purpose that becomes your life’s calling.

The greatest of the greats are very often defined by that one singular life altering thing which causes them to pivot.

For Einstein it was a random ride in an elevator that gave rise to General Relativity.

For Steve Jobs it was seeing for the first time Xerox’s graphical user interface that gave rise to Apple.

We all have some smoldering fire burning inside us. A fire, waiting for a match that will unleash a fury of desire and passion.

That match, that ignitor is out there waiting for you to find it.

Never surrender. Never quit. Never give up the fight. All it takes is one seemingly innocuous, yet monumental thing, which will ignite the fire that resides inside each one of us and transform your life forever.
