Have you ever had the feeling that you would like to change something in the world, but you don't know how? Do you sometimes think that with all the injustice and problems, there's no point in getting involved anyway? Sometimes we feel less important and smaller than we really are. In this post you will learn what you can do to make the world a little better and how much power you actually have.
Nelson Mandela once said: `Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ` The first step of changing is always to understand what's going on, what's right and wrong and for this, you have to broaden up your horizon. The second step is to figure out how to turn the situation into a better one and for this, you have to enrich your knowledge. Education is the best investment in your future because it can give you access to very new paths. Once you gained knowledge about a specific area, try to give others access to your insights. There was no better time than nowadays to share knowledge widely that easily, for example through social media, podcast, YouTube, etc. We recommend you to use our digital age not only for connecting to people all over the world but to learn from the best. Stanford University, for example, has its free podcast channel to visualize attending their classes. What a chance to educate yourself for free and to have an impact on this world!
Start in your environment
Sometimes we attend to think that we are too far away from the decision-making power and from the things we would like to change. The key is: if you start to be the change you want to see most in the world in your own surrounding you might inspire others to do the same. To be able to serve your community you have to take a look at yourself first. Are you the person you really want to be? What does the community need the most to be a better one? Once you shifted your perspective you can take actions for change. And soon you will see- the more you give the more will come back to you...
You are not alone
Is there this one thing you are ready to stand up and take action for? Or are you missing support and restraint from people and you wish they had the same vision? Don't forget that today we have about 7.7 billion people in this world. Only because there is a group of people that are not sharing your passion, that doesn't mean that you are fighting alone. So many others are waiting to connect with you and to stand up for the same values. To become more powerful, have a look for a team and start to act together.
Challenging with others who are disagreeing with you can lead to distraction from the goal where you were about to reach. If you focus on the similarities on each other you will be able to give- and as well receive- support. We encourage you to start changing your world in a small way and to stand up for your dreams. Lots of luck!
