Book: The Tipping Point

IMG_5019 I like to go to bookstores and see what new book I can discover. I kept seeing The Turning Point by Malcolm Gladwell displayed everywhere. More than the fact it’s a national best seller, it was the title that I found intriguing.
The first few chapters I read through, enjoying what I was reading but it was the last chapters that I started to highlight key points. Though out the book I was looking for the answer on what creates a Tipping Point for something, what causes a street trend to exploded to main stream, a movement or change culture. But instead I found what to look for in different people I come across. Those who carry the gift to sale, to inform, or connect with other people.
The book shares ideas and stories of failed and successful epidemics that took place in our culture and changed everything. The stories help you see what happened to create a tipping point that had a revolutionary impact.
I thought about the people who played the three different roles to create a tipping point in my life. My friend Geo connected me with so many of my friends and told me about Hillsong, which led me to attend their Bible College and move to Australia. Or my friend Desiree who’s word of mouth power has given my photography business so many clients, and my always cool friend Carlos who knows the trends before they happen.
I thought about what my role can be to impact culture and how I can use this knowledge to play a role in what I do for a living. I’ve always been a Maven but liked to keep things to myself in fear of everyone knowing and copying me or showing up at my new found coffee house. Now as I am sharing information, it shows me that I can be that tipping point in someone else’s life.

      1. Oh my goodness, that’s such a good question. The end of last year I finished Bonhoeffer which totally changed my life. This year. I haven’t read the life changing book yet. I’ll keep you posted. Which book has changed your life??
