Every time I see issues in the world, I also see the people who stand by and don’t do anything about it. Those who trailblaze and start movements are those who truly make changes in our community. They’re the ones who will make the world a better place, and the same ones who will make a future generation of “do-ers”. My favorite moments are when parents reach through to their kids to inspire that same mentality of actionable change. After all, if you never put forth the effort to make a change, nothing will change for you! This is why it’s so important to be a “do-er” in a world of watchers.
By “watchers” I mean the ones who sit back and watch the world either get worse, or better. Either way, the change is without their aid! Their sense of pride comes entirely from internal focuses, like their own projects or personal gains. With a community minded focus, you’re sure to leave an impact that’s visible, lasting, and meaningful to much more than just you. Your community should be the thing you most value, and as a result, your efforts will improve it! It’s my humble thought that nationwide change (which is deeply needed) starts with our communities – and so starts with YOU.
Each interaction you have, and each person you connect with changes both of the lives involved. No matter how small the interaction, or how big, the impact is there. So let your passionate causes touch the lives of those in your area, and watch others flock to your cause! The more you do for your community, the more you’ll see the positive change in your life, business, and well-being.
