If you ever encounter an unpleasant situation or circumstance, I hope you will see it as an opportunity to show up and be a pleasant surprise in someone else's life.
Sometimes in order to experience pleasant surprises we must go through unpleasant times.
It's such a blessing to be able to show up in other people's lives and help them.
What the world needs are companies that care about the people and the planet.
8 out of 10 people who are blind would still have their vision if they had access to eye care.
80% of the world's blindness is preventable.
There are over a billion people who lack access to eye care.
I had no idea what it would be, I just knew I wanted to make a difference in the world somehow, someway.
What are the odds that a camel herder in Ethiopia walks into a hospital with his child, with little hope, and one of the world's leading cardio thoracic surgeons is just standing there trying to find his way in the hospital.
...in the United State a pediatric heart surgery can cost anywhere from $90,000 - $200,000 an Dr. Mannam is doing these surgeries for $2500.
What about situations where we can choose to show up and be a pleasant surprise?

And if you end the day not doing anything except caring about yourself, that's one more day lost to making this a great community.
Stay engaged. Don't become so focused on what your specific career is that you forget that there's a community you live in.
I want to see us move past the politics of fear, which is driving so much of what's happening in Charlotte, in North Carolina, and across this country.
It was important, even if we didn't win, that a view point be expressed that reflected a lot of North Carolina.
I saw a relationship between what I did for my full-time job and I did as a contribution to the community. This need to take all of the diversity out there, and all of the opinions out there, and as a mayor try to assemble and hear everybody and then see if we can craft a creative solution.
The greatest satisfaction for me is when I visit the project after it's been designed and I can walk into that space and just look around to see if what they told me way back in the beginning is how they're actually using the space.
I design buildings for people
It's going to be tougher fighting a battle that really dwells in people's hearts.
