What can I do to change the world?

Every time I read a book about someone who has changed the world, I want to change the world too. I want to do something that will make people remember me even after I am gone. The only problem is that I do not know how to do it. Do I need to learn how to better oneself or do something different to create a better world? Will I need a lot of money to do it or can I start where I am and make a significant difference in the world?

You are not alone. A lot of people would like to participate in changing the world and be remembered for their great contributions. What most people do not know is how to make this change and what it takes to actually make a significant difference. It is not enough to dream about it. You have to have a clear vision and make steps towards achieving your goals on a daily basis. Here are some of the things you can do:

  • Identify Your Strength

If you follow stories about people who have changed the world, you will notice one thing, most of those people concentrated on doing one thing. For instance, Mother Teresa focused on spreading a ministry of compassion and love and she excelled because that is where her strength was. Therefore, you need to know what makes you different from other people. What do you have to give for the world that you can start doing now even without any resources?

  • Educate Yourself

Scientists like Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein did not go about bettering the world by focusing on what they already knew. They spent hours doing research, making errors and learning from their mistakes. You need to do the same. Once you have identified what you are good at, the next thing you need to do is to build your skills. It can be through research, taking a course or getting mentorship from people who are doing the same thing you want to do.

  • Believe in Yourself

To make a change in any situation in the world, you have to believe in yourself. Self-confidence is what will make you rise up when you get knocked down or when people do not believe in your vision. It is what will make you wake up every day and it is what will make you achieve your dream. If you lack this, it might be a good idea to start bettering yourself. Take steps to improve yourself and your self-image so that you can set yourself up for success.

  • Dare to dream big

If your goal is to make a change in the world, you cannot afford to have small dreams. You need to dream big. Think about things that will revolutionize the world and get you the recognition you want. If it does not scare you, it is probably not big enough to make a difference.  However, be patient because big dreams require time to accomplish.

I agree. Anyone can change the world if they put their mind to it and focus on achieving their goals.  Another thing I believe will be necessary for you is seeking help. When people are on a quest to change the world, they shy away from asking for help because they think they might be asked to share the spotlight when they make it. One thing you need to remember is that there is enough sunshine for everyone. Do not be afraid to share the spotlight with someone. Along the way, get all the help you need from experts and people who are already where you want to be. This will hasten the process for you and it will make it easier for you to achieve your goals faster. However, make sure you choose the right people who will be very committed to teaching you everything you need to know.
