If you're looking for inspiration or motivation, all it takes is to read about our Australia Day award winners.
Seven people received awards in Dubbo and hearing their stories, they're definitely deserving.
Take our Citizen of the Year Megan Hamblin. She has volunteered for more than 1000 hours in the last two years alone. That equates to about 10 hours a week!
Even when she was at Victoria Park to receive her award, Ms Hamblin was on the clock.
And the first thing she wanted to do to celebrate? Head to Wellington to cheer on one of her cadets who was also receiving an Australia Day award.
What about our Sportsperson of the Year Mel Currey?
Not only is her story mind-blowing. Her attitude is so positive.
"We have a responsibility to show people what you can do when you put your mind to it," she said.
"We say it all the time and I've said it to my children and grandchildren but sometimes you need to show them."
It's people like this that we should aspire to be.
But let's not forget the other winners.
Senior Citizen of the Year Lorraine Callaghan has been volunteering for more than 40 years.
Jojo Joseph, the Cultural Person of the Year, has been making Dubbo home for the international residents who find their way here.
Karen Granger is unstoppable. She has been a tireless volunteer across various sporting and non-sporting groups for years.
And our two young winners already have impressive resumes.
Young Citizen of the Year Molly Croft has raised more than $180,000 for Ronald McDonald House, while Haylee Fuller seems to add a new accolade to her name every week.
These people are amazing. They make Dubbo a better place for being in it.
