When it comes to making change, many people believe they can’t change a situation or themselves. Some insist that the matter is too big, out of our hands, or out of our control. A little guy can’t create change! Too many times, I’ve heard people say, “it’s just my personality type” or “that’s just the way I am.” Do you really believe this nonsense? I think we underestimate the influence that we can make from the little things we can do on a consistent basis.
Change Takes Action
For the naysayers, it’s time to start looking at how change happens. Change doesn’t happen by people sitting back and doing nothing. In order to change, you need, first, to make the decision, commit to the process and plan, and then take action.
I hear people say: “Don’t fuss, it’s not worth the energy;” “Why make a big deal out of it. Life has always been like this;” “Don’t worry about something you cannot change;” but this way of thinking is misleading and false. Can you imagine if we all thought this way? No change would happened. We would have never got to the moon. We would never had the TV or the computer. This world, including you, and everything that goes on in it, is a big deal and it should concern every individual that lives on this planet because we are all involved; we all live here.
Don’t you want to leave a legacy for your children or the people you care about? Don’t you want to leave the world a better place for the next generation of humanity? There are too many things happening in this world that need your help. Really! It is not out of your control; it’s not too big; and it’s not out of your hands.
What else are you going to do that gives you meaning and purpose. We are all busy, but this planet and the people and animals living on it need your support somewhere. You can start with one small step at a time and by,
- Creating networks of like-minded individuals.
- Create a voice and use material to back your information up.
- Don’t pull crap out of thin air; it’s not viable and you lose credibility.
- You need some tolerance to risk.
- You must be fully grounded for back-lash.
