Think of world-changers for a moment. What good world-changers throughout human history come to your mind?
People who made a huge impact. People who blessed others with their lives. People who inspired and did incredible things.
Did they possess something in common? Were they born with titles, or did they get lucky? Did they win the popularity contest or have an easy life? That has to be it: easy life, popularity, titles and luck!
These come no where close. In fact, most world-changers overcame incredible odds and perhaps never possessed a title.
Take George Washington who barely made it out of the French and Indian War alive. Congress almost replaced him as general of the Continental Army at one point, and often, his soldiers were malnourished and ill-equipped. His resolve, perseverence, and nothing short of Divine intervention is why we call ourselves Americans today.
Winston Churchill was almost pronounced a political failure before stepping out of a flawed past to be the unbreakable backbone against horrid Nazism.
The list could go on. Anne Frank being among this noteworthy tribe said, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before improving the world!” Seriously? This unwavering belief from a girl who was killed at the hands of her Nazi captors?
This is the one thing world-changers have in common – unwavering belief. They believed they had a purpose in this world, so they made their life count for others. Trials came and with faith and endurance, they resolved to get stronger through the struggles.
Their unwavering belief that they could change the world drove them to action. We know from some of their journals and history that they prepared, they learned, they tried and failed often, but they always got back up!
These people made a difference. They made the same difference one-on-one as they did for millions. Making history was never their intent; making a difference was.
Are you making a difference for somebody today? That’s all it takes. A heart to change this world one person at a time. You can start changing the world TODAY and indeed, it’s a wonderful thought! Be a world-changer!
