"Be the change you wish to see in the world."- A famous quote that inspires every person, but rarely one could believe. With the rising global issues, it has become challenging for us to believe that we alone can significantly change society. It is easy to lose power when other changes are happening too fast. It's always easy to get tempted by the past and resist the future. But the first step towards making a better society is to re-balance yourself and reclaim the power in your life. Since the world is changing, use the energy from the change as an opportunity to improve yourself and your surroundings.
Indeed, one person alone cannot change the world canvas, but the small changes you bring in a few people's lives keep the power to change the world canvas. In studies, it has been found that when you help others, it circulates among the other people around us, and they further help others. There can be various ways to bring change in society from a single person's thought and act; these are amongst the few primary ones:
Change through the Personal Growth
The first step towards changing society starts with bringing change in oneself. The world seems a good place for a person who is happy by heart and a dire and hopeless place for a sad and undesired person. So, to bring change in the outside world, one has to change the inside world first. When looking at everything in the world, we only surround ourselves with inaction. Therefore, to bring the improvement you want to see in society, start with self-improvement. Grow yourself by building kindness, a non-judgemental attitude, making yourself aware of societal acts, and bringing grace and modesty in your actions. These small changes can change the bigger picture of life and make the world a positive place to live and grow.
What Impacts can your Actions actually make in the world?
Humans are creatures who always try to find their existence and the purpose of their existence. This existence question is the root of any social innovation projects they get involved in. Every human on earth wants to leave a meaningful mark on earth before their departure. But the fast changes make it challenging to visualize what difference we can actually make and help the local and global communities.
In this complex time, the only thing that can help visualize the big picture is, Kindness is Contagious. It is seen that the more time and resources we give to the issues we are concerned about, the more others will give in return. So, if you want to see your impact on society, take a day of your week and serve society with the change you wish to bring, and the next time you are out, you will see more action towards the change.
Consider One Person at a Time and Understand the Individuals
Human beings are hardwired to help others, and we all know that change is the only constant in every person's life. Therefore, every human at one point in time indeed thinks to change the world. But bringing a meaningful or effective change cannot be instant or large-scale. To make a real impact on society can actually take months or even years, and making the world a better place will always mean to better it for a few people at a time. Every change you bring to one person's life brings a butterfly effect to improve the lives of future generations. And, if you are not sure about what change you can bring in a person's life, look at the side of what you can do and go ahead with that deed to the person who needs it.
Now, when our modern society is driven by mass-market economics, a person reflects his environment. Every person in America tries to be an individual in himself but is stopped by the trends and becomes nothing of themself. At this time, try to be unique and approach people in your style. Don't let yourself be afraid of the crowd, neither try to come to every needy person in the same style. Remember the blend of unique and individual as you step towards making your and others' lifestyle a little better.
These small steps towards yourself and the small community of people can bring a noticeable change in society. Your approach towards facing the fight for even a small number of people brings a considerable change in society. So, understand your fight and stand with your community for what's right and improve their lives, consequently society's lives.
Whenever you see a person who needs any care or support, try to reach them and help if you can. But if you cannot help him, let him connect with us and get the support and care he wants. This small step can help you, along with us, to make society a better place to live.
