There’s an old proverb that tells a story of a man walking along a beach completely covered by starfish that have been washed up on the shore due to a violent storm. He sees a little boy off in the distance picking them up one by one and throwing them back into the sea. The man approaches the child and says son what are you doing? You’ll never be able to throw them all back - it won’t make a difference! The little boy pauses for a moment and looks at the starfish in his hand. Then looks at the gentleman and says - it will to this one - and heaves the starfish into the waves. And as the gentleman continues to walk away he watches as the little boy continues to save as many as he can. 

Have you ever wondered why equally talented units have different results? Teams, companies, schools, and yet one always seems to outperform the others. Have you ever been inspired hearing of an individual or group or company that consistently makes a difference.  Research has shown over and over again that there is one common denominator- the people at the center. In the midst of the average, others stand out. A little extra time, a little extra effort, the conscious effort to always do one bit more. Those individuals make all the difference to teams, companies and organizations. That’s the Power of People Realized . Over the next several months we will be highlighting people who consistently make a difference. We welcome your thoughts and contributions as we continue to recognize those people around us who make a difference!
"To be able to help all these women is amazing. This can be life-changing for these women," Williams, who played eight seasons for the Carolina Panthers before he played two seasons for the Pittsburgh Steelers, said in a statement to Today . "We are enabling them to get this care that no one should ever be denied or not have access to."

So far, Williams’ foundation — through the “53 Strong for Sandra” program, named in honor of his mother and references the age she lost her breast cancer battle — has covered mammogram costs at hospitals in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Arkansas, and North Carolina. The program initially started in Charlotte at the Charlotte Radiology and Levine Cancer Institute.

To date, Williams, through  The DeAngelo Williams Foundation , has covered the cost of 500 mammograms. He first began sponsoring the screenings in 2015, about a year after his mother died from breast cancer. Williams, 36, has also lost four aunts to the disease."
