People who really want to make a difference in the world usually do it, in one way or another. And I’ve noticed something about people who make a difference in the world; They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important, that every life matters. They get excited over one smile. They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, treat one wound and inspire and effect change in one mind. They aren’t determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they’re satisfied with small changed. Over time, though, the small changes add up. Sometimes they even transform cities and nations, and yes it seems this time, the world.
People who want to make a difference get frustrated along the way. But if they have a particular stressful day, they don’t quit. They keep going. Given their astounding accomplishments, most of them are shockingly normal and the way they spend each day can be pretty ordinary. They don’t teach grand lessons that can bring incremental improvements to one man or women, boy or girl. They don’t do anything to call attention to themselves; they simply pay attention to the everyday needs of others, even if it’s only one person. They bring change in ways most people will never read about or applaud. And because of the way these world changers are wired, they wouldn’t think of living their lives any other way. Thank you Team Generous for your difference.
