I am Darrell Wrenn. I have been a Real Change vendor for about two months. You can find me selling Real Change at the PCC in Issaquah. The people are very nice at that location. The staff and management have been very nice to me as well. Agnes, Susan, Bob, Tim, Brandy, Jesse, Leif, Courtney, Jeff, Tami, Mychelle, Amber and Ryan and many others at PCC have been receptive to Real Change. I thank them truly for their genuine kindness.
I love sharing and bringing awareness to homelessness with the customers at Issaquah. But I like talking about solutions as well. A lot of people see Real Change, but very few know what Real Change is about. That’s one of the reasons why I always share with people how Real Change not only helps homeless people employ themselves but brings about awareness of social injustice. Real Change talks about solutions and is very open to feedback from people about the paper. I am very motivated about solutions to homelessness in Seattle and surrounding areas in Washington.
I stay motivated to make a difference in life on many levels. I think that a person has to be motivated in life to be successful at anything. What drives motivation is vision. Then a person has to put action behind that vision with a game plan, meaning you must be motivated daily as you wake up to start your day. You must speak encouraging and empowering words to yourself daily. This will keep you going even in the storms of adversity that life can present. Keep in mind that adversity is one of the professors of life. It teaches you. Success does not come without motivation. You must be motivated within yourself. Find what drives you daily. What inspires you? What do you love to do? That’s one of the many things that will drive your motivation.
I am a huge advocate for being confident within yourself. Most successful people if not all have huge confidence and boldness. Always believe in yourself with confidence and boldness. Yes, this can be a lonely walk at times. But God is with you. The more confidence you have, the more motivated you will become. Then success will arrive shortly thereafter. I hope this motivational moment helps you through your day and week moving forward. If you have any questions or comments feel free to reach me at the PCC Issaquah location. You can contact me on Twitter (@darrellwrenn), Facebook (Darrell Wrenn) and Instagram (@darrellwrenn).
I look forward to hearing from all of you. Otherwise I hope you have a blessed week ahead.
Stay confident and bold with no fear. God bless.
