“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” -  Gandhi

How significant are you? Can you really make a difference? Are you just another person in this world of 7+ Billion people?

It is so easy to lie to yourself, and for you to think that your ideas and actions have very little impact on the world. I’m here to tell you that you are significant, you can make a difference, and that you have purpose and can create movements. Yes, there are over 7 Billion people in the world, and yes you will probably never speak or see many of them directly. That does not mean that you can not influence millions and millions of people indirectly. It is about influencing the people you do directly interact with to such a high degree, that the people you meet can’t help but share you and your ideas with others.

To put it into perspective, let’s say you come into contact with 1,000 people in your lifetime, and honestly that number can be and will be much higher when factoring in the internet and your online interactions. To keep math easy, let’s just say 1,000 to give you perspective. If you meet 1,000 people in your lifetime, and each one of those people meet 1,000 other people, and each one of those people meet 1,000 other people, all of the sudden, you could potentially reach 1,000,000,000 people.

When you take every opportunity to share your dreams and thoughts to influence others, your message can potentially reach 1/7th of the world’s population just through direct interactions via social networking.

Be the change you wish to see in the world and take action, take the initiative, get your message out there, influence others, and truly make a difference. All it takes is making the most out of every situation. Word can spread like a wildfire. BE THE SPARK!  Your influence is endless. Use this concept as a tool, as motivation to continue to grind, to grow, and to ultimately succeed!
