We all constantly talk about people who are changing the world in a big way. People like Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein.
Yes, they changed the world, but did you know that you’re actually changing it too, every single day?
Jay Shetty explains why changing the world really begins with us.
If you want to make an impact at a large scale, you have to be comfortable making it at a small scale too. You can build that momentum up over time, but it all has to start somewhere. Just the momentum you gain from accomplishing simple tasks each morning (like making your bed) can create a positive stepping stone from which to take your next step.
Clay Shirky looks at “cognitive surplus” — the shared, online work we do with our spare brain cycles. While we’re busy editing Wikipedia, making LOLcats, we’re building a better, more cooperative world.
Changing the world starts at home within ourselves and our families, expanding out with the ripple effect, creating a storm and changing the world for one person at a time with each kind word and act of love given to a stranger or friend.
