To change the world is a very big challenge. How can one achieve this?
As I sit down and think about it I take a pen and paper and make some notes. The world is a very big place and there are hundreds upon thousands of people in it. How can I help make their lives better?
The truth is no one can make the whole world better. You can however help make some lives better. The first thing you need to do though is to start thinking about your self. This may seem a little selfish but it helps to put things in perspective. Only by starting with ourselves can we hope to succeed in changing the world. The world keeps moving forward all the time, never slowing down. We can’t catch up but we can keep moving to. The world may seem to leave us behind, the truth may be that we forget to follow it. Sometimes we see problems and ignore them. Sometimes we try to fix them and make them worse. Don’t despair, one step at a time. First get to know the problem, find a solution and with the help of others it will be fixed.
If you want to make a change then start with yourself. When we know our abilities and limits we can get help to do the rest of the things we find hard. Only by learning and doing our best, can we then move on to helping teach others to do the same. So even if you fail at something , it’s ok. Pick yourself up and keep moving forward.
Another way of changing the world with your dream, is to make that dream a reality. Think about what it is you would like to do in a more specific terms. Instead of the usual world peace think about what this could be broken down into. It could be something more simple like there is a lot of conflicts in your local area. This can be for a number of reasons, perhaps its young teens that are being noisy because they have no local activities to go do. Wouldn’t it be nice to give them an activity place they can go hang out at?
You can’t throw your self in the deep end and expect world peace to happen over night. You can however work with other people and find a way to do it together. Start with one area at a time and slowly all these areas will for the world. The world is your oyster, the world can be what you dream.
There are lots of people that need help with things. Why not be a volunteer. I was a volunteer for the YMCA charity, even Leonard Cheshire. Helping people is not only one of the things I can do, it is one of the things I love to do. Now I am helping out with the Girl Guiding Association as a volunteer. Helping young girls learn new skills they can use to survive life is important. You would think as an adult many of us wont learn much from kids. This is wrong, working with others of all ages reminds us what we can do. Its a bit like a refresher course and its fun.
There are even other charities where you can make donations or send them old goods. This is a great way to help others better themselves and their life. You can help someone the other side of the world, even an animal all without leaving your home. Your dreams will help bring peace and happiness to the world. Just give it a try and you will make someone smile. Charities that help communities especially with research or resources are some of the best in the world. Some examples of charities that work like this are Cancer Research (helping to save and restore lives), Heifer International, Kiva, or Free the Children. Education charities, like (One Laptop Per Child) or even WWF (animal protection and saving endangered species). If you can’t donate how about holding a car boot or fundraiser to raise some funds. This is good way for you to make some cash or for other people. You will also meet more people who could help you form a community to help others.
Whatever your dream I wish you all the best. To you and your future success.
