Start Something

You Can Make a Difference

"I challenge you to make a difference in the world, to reach higher and farther than you ever imagined. I challenge you to start something."
-- Tiger Woods, from the foreword
Are you ready for a challenge? Are you ready to make a real difference in your life, and the world around you? You can do it even if you're not Tiger Woods. You can be a winner at school, and with your friends, your family, your team. You can be the superstar of your own life. And you can start today.
Tiger didn't start out as a champion. But his father Earl taught him unforgettable lessons about dreaming big, reaching goals, and believing with all his heart that anything is possible. He showed Tiger that anyone can make a difference in the world by reaching out and caring about others. And now Tiger's dad is sharing those lessons and ideas with you, so you can be a champion at whatever you do.
Earl Woods and the Tiger Woods Foundation want you to Start Something. In this book you'll find dozens of ways you can start something new, and make the world a better place one step at a time. Some are about action, and some will just give you something to think about.
Help a little kid clean up a park • settle an argument • write down one thing each day that you're proud of • donate school supplies to a needy school • ask your parents about their day • include the kid who always gets left out • refuse to give up • and much more...
Try a few or try them all. Just try. Dare to set an example that others can follow. Dare to be great. Dare to set goals that only you can achieve.
Packed with Tiger-tested advice and creative ideas for helping others, this book offers powerful insight into how you can build the kind of confidence that makes Tiger great, create goals that can help you make your way in the world, and take practical steps when you find yourself feeling overwhelmed. As Earl writes, "You are a miracle, and you can make miracles happen. Celebrate yourself, for all the things that make you special and unique. Remember: Anyone can be part of the pack, but there is only one of you."

Chapter One: Something Good Happened to You Today -- Did You Notice?

It's so easy to get caught up in daily problems: Your parents are mad at you, your best friend made plans that didn't include you, that math test was impossible, you didn't make the team. Yet believe it or not, in the middle of all that stress and trouble, there are wonderful things happening all around you, if you take the time to notice. Every day, take a minute to think of three good things that happened. They can be big events, like winning a game or getting a good grade. Or they can be small, hard-to-notice things, like hearing a good joke, receiving a... see more
