Bro Tip #935

McRee and one of my favorite Alpha Chi Omegas
One of my favorite professional friends is a man named Mike McRee.  He is smart, progressive, thoughtful and just an out-n-out funny fella.  Among a multitude of other things, he works for LeaderShape.  http://www.leadershape.org/  If you have a moment, click on this link – the Intro alone is worth the time.  He is pictured here, to the left, with one of my favorite Alpha Chi Omega friends. Despite that it appears he creeped into the picture, we were all sitting together and, most certainly, laughing at something.  I know, I know – he looks innocent enough, but when he gets on a roll - he can really call it like it is.  He has visited USD as a speaker to fraternity and sorority members.  He knows us and "he's good people". With all of that introduction, below is a statement he had posted on Twitter recently.

BroTip #935: The good news is one person has what it takes to change the world. The bad news is you haven't realized that it's you.

How can I show you that you have this power?

Not just the power to influence Greek Life.  Not just the power to make your chapter better, strong, more effective.  Bigger.  More impactful.  You are the one.  You can make the world a place of justice, a place of peace, a place of learning. I love the fraternity and sorority experience.  I believe in it so strongly, that it is my vocation. But, Friends, your undergraduate experience is a way to prepare you for life after USD.  A life where Truth, Honor, Diligence, Integrity, Love all mean something.

YOU have what it takes.

YOU can change the world.

Now, today.  And, every day after that.
