The idea of bringing about change or making an impact in the world can be quite a daunting one for most teens and young adults. When we think about our society which is so heavily plagued with injustice and pain it’s easy to start feeling like any attempt at bringing about change would be inadequate. There is a misconception that in order to bring about lasting change you need to reach thousands of people and be known by many. We trick ourselves into believing that bringing about change requires huge fame and skill, and this idea ultimately traps us. It traps us into believing that we are small and inadequate, and it stops us from stepping out and attempting to make a difference at all.
The truth is, change starts with you! It starts with you realizing that you have the ability to impact the world around you. It starts with young people realizing that their voice truly has the power to bring about change, and it starts with realizing that making a difference in the world is not always about reaching many people but rather about impacting one life. Bringing about change should be driven by a personal desire to help change the lives of people around us. When we focus on impacting one life it takes bringing about change from being just a dream into being something practical and attainable. I truly believe that real change starts with the little things, it starts with us stepping out and thinking of ways that we can make a positive impact in the lives of people around us. It starts with something as small as choosing to be kind always and having empathy for people who are less fortunate. Your small gesture of kindness could motivate others around you to also step out in kindness
I believe that we’re all born with a passion and a purpose for our lives. Each one of us has something unique to offer the world around us. The best way to bring change is to use what you’re passionate about to make a positive impact in people’s lives. For example, if you are passionate about baking, why not have a bake sale at your school to raise funds for a local charity. I want to encourage you to find out what you’re passionate about, what is it that you love to do? Once you figure that out, think of ways you could use that to make a difference in your school or community. Most importantly know that you have the ability to do great things – you have a voice that has the power to help people around you, so use it! And know that we can change the world around us by simply changing “one life at a time”.
