Wake Up, Serve, Repeat

In this interview, Steve shares the importance of serving the interests of others before our own and how that value was planted in Tim Tebow’s heart at the young age of 15.

Today, Gary is a national award-winning, syndicated cartoonist for Creators Syndicate, along with being a speaker and filmmaker. But Gary’s journey has not been easy. He is a college dropout and persevered through 16 years of rejection before becoming an editorial cartoonist, a title few artists can claim.

The 7 Pillars of Impact

Growth, change, grit
Personal Impact
People who are trying to make an impact first realize they need a greater understanding of themselves.
1
Growth, change, grit
your own backyard
Community Impact
Many people aspire to change the world, but it seems such a daunting task when looked at that way that they quickly become discouraged.
2
your own backyard
Raising abilities
Professional Impact
Another secret known by people who make an impact - they are experts at something. They have knowledge, wisdom, experience, and skills.
3
Raising abilities
Interfacing and focusing on needs
Social Impact
Impactful people are different because they are acutely aware of the needs around them, but more importantly, they are willing to act to address them.
4
Interfacing and focusing on needs
profits and giving
Fiscal Impact
There’s been a shift in recent decades to equate those who make a profit as greed-driven. “Profit” isn’t a negative word.
5
profits and giving
reaching out to a diverse world
Global Impact
The world is growing smaller as problems are getting bigger. Truly impactful people know they can’t do it alone.
6
reaching out to a diverse world
Organizational Impact
Organizational Impact
Perhaps nowhere do impactful people get more “bang for their buck” than when they begin making an impact within their own businesses and organizations.
7
Organizational Impact
