Welcome to The One Effect!
The One Effect is an experiment to see how much one blog can change the world in both big and small ways.
When I was younger I use to hear my friends say that when they grew up, they were going to change the world. They were going to do something amazing with their lives. Honestly, I thought that too. But, as time went on I would see people (including myself) seep into a pattern of day to day life where they just existed and forgot how exciting life was. I asked myself; ‘What happened to all that passion? What happened to all that confidence?’ Well, it is funny because in ‘adulthood’ you tell someone you are going to ‘change the world, do something amazing’ most people just roll their eyes and shake their head, ‘There he goes with his wild ideas again” they say. When did it become the norm to not believe in your dreams? I really got to the point where I got tired of seeing and hearing people laugh at those that wanted to chase after their dreams, those that wanted to change the world…….so I did exactly what 99% people think is nearly impossible. I started my own project ‘to change the world’. Maybe I have massive success, and maybe I don’t. But at least I won’t be laying on my death bed saying ‘Man if I could only go back and at least try.’ So this is it….this is my project to change the world.

The idea for The One Effect came from a desire to make a difference in the lives of people. To somehow make a change for those that want it, but sometimes just have a little difficulty seeing how. It started as a small project raising money for a clinic that housed 18 children with developmental disabilities in Costa Rica. During that project we saw how much people from all over really do care and how much people want to help create change in this world.
It was after that project that we asked ourselves; How can we help others realize their dreams and how can we all be a part of something that is bigger? Well, ….after years of traveling the world, deep thought and hiking 500 miles across Spain we came up with TheOneEffect.com. It is a blog/website where common people can see others going after their dreams and making them a reality. It is a place where people can work together to make each others dreams come true. A place where people can get some tid-bits on how to create a better life for themselves. And on top of that, we go around the world doing really cool projects for those that can use a little help making their own dreams come true.
One of our cool ideas was to send out a short 3 minute inspirational video to our subscribers 3 times a week. These will come through email in the morning to help you kickstart your day.
-We created The One Effect for you. As a testament showing that the average person is very capable of doing above average things. We believe that a persons dreams are very important and that they should be held in a high regard. No matter how big or how small, all of these dreams change the world in some way. Some of the most nobel work one can do is to help people realize their dreams. When we help people realize those dreams it causes a little bit of inspiration for that one person. That inspiration causes a ripple effect…..The One Effect….that effect will slowly and surely alter outcomes all over the world one dream at a time.
This is our dream, what is yours?
