After reading the book “Start Something that Matters” by Blake Mycoskie I understand the importance of getting my dream job, doing what I really love, helping people and finding my mission. The founder and Chief Shoe Giver of TOMS feels happy providing shoes to needy children and at the same time he is an awesome popular businessman. He gives a chance to people nearly all over the world to make their own contribution to poor Argentinian people living far from them and if not One to One they would never present them those shoes may be. “The first shoe I put on a kid's foot, it was like, this is it. For every kid I saw, there was another I wanted to help” explains Blake Mycoskie to Booth Moore. His way of selling lifestyle not shoes has inspired me much. I also want to make the world a better place.
How many people are satisfied with their jobs? Doesn’t money take precedence over us? If money was no matter what would I do? Trying to answer honestly I thought about the most essential need for a human. The first idea came to my mind was LIFE. People are used to hearing about murders or terroristic attacks every day. In contrast people should make a difference. Unfortunately the statistics of crimes around the world is increasing no matter what category they are. The U.N Office of Drugs and Crime reports that half a million people around the world were murdered in 2012. What a pity! The killed ones were someone’s mothers, fathers, children or friends. At that moment I stopped and listened to my heart to decide what I would do if I didn’t concern about money.
I would certainly continue my education; learn electrical engineering and electronic technology deeply to become one of the best scientists in the world. I would collect the cleverest scientists to work on creating special smart shoes which would protect a person from any kind of attack. It would have a sensor sole producing rays. The rays would cover a man from head to toe in dangerous situations. The function of rays would be stopping other objects even a bullet from heating a man. A man would be able to control the shoes himself. When he sensed danger he would have to tap his right foot and the rays would come out from the shoes to create a protective capsule until he felt safe. Tapping the left one would call the police without any phone. The left shoe would send signals allowing the police to determine his location. Tap combinations would be chosen by an owner, only he would know a secret tap code. During walking or running the smart soles would accumulate energy. Moreover another way to charge them would be simply using electricity.
It would reduce crime and homicide so people could live in safety. Terroristic attacks would be prevented because criminals would mentally understand a certain punishment. Surely these shoes would be at reasonable cost for everyone could allow them. May be someone won’t believe me, even laugh but let’s think about humanity’s achievements. Many years ago the flight to the Universe was far beyond our grasp. Computers, Internet and cell phones were really visionary. However we are using them and no one can reject it.
Mycoskie gives shoes to children as a foundation for their education and health. I will give shoes as a protection. I want to do something that really matters. God’s power shines through our limitations (Live Your Calling, p 8).
