Do you believe that you can make a difference? When I mean is can you do this for someone you know, in your community, at work, or in some other way? Throughout the time I’ve been blogging I’ve met so many bloggers, life coaches, and extraordinary people who desire to make a difference in the world. They want to change lives and communities with their talents and efforts, but how did they know that they can make a difference?
I think that the biggest misconception is that people don’t just walk out their house one day wanting to make a change. It’s a desire and a calling that people have on their hearts. Malala Yousafzai didn’t seek out the massive role she played bring attention to human rights, she was sitting on a school bus when her life changed. Through her story and efforts she has changed our world and the education system in Pakistan.
March is Women’s History Month and after doing some research I found out that it started back in 1981. When you think about it the 80’s was not that long ago and there are so many women that were changing things and making a difference before then. Oprah was already well into her media career, Nina Simone already had top rated songs, and many more women had already paved the way for us to have the life we have now. The thread among all of them is that they didn’t seek to be the first or to face adversity, but they all wanted to see change.
When I talk to these extraordinary people who want to make a difference they express the same sentiment that they want to make our world better. They want to be the one that helps people and communities achieve their dreams, opens them up to a new life, and see what their capable of. We can all make a difference that can change a someone’s way of life and history forever. It all depends on if we believe we can make a difference.
