We build our lives upon what we have been taught by our parents, teachers, society and much more. The basic skills equipped or to be equipped might help us bring a difference in the society wherein we live. According to me making a difference just doesn't mean that you go to great extents forming funds, helping the poor, breaking through the e-world finally finding yourself among the list of "providers". Making a difference can also be in terms of changing the thoughts of society, recasting the working systems, making nature prepossessing and beyond that.
We all contemplate ourselves as the sheep of the herd but none try to be the single herding dog of the flock. That's where we get into making a difference.
It can be intimidating when you think of the challenge it can take to make a difference in the world. You may feel too small or insignificant to really stir any change. But it only takes that chunk of confidence hidden behind those bushes. Believing in yourself and making the unfeasible things around you happening is the first step in achieving what you really want to.
When you quiz people around asking what's the beautiful thing they possess you may get a few replies stating their smile, beauty, brains and many more but what you really need to have is confidence. When you are confident, you have a natural glow on your face, which might be one of the agenda to step up with creating a difference anywhere you go. Life's full of miracles and mysteries so whatever you face you need to throw that light of confidence and be bold enough to face it.
Believing in yourself before doing anything is also important. Do not mistrust, no matter how small your dreams might seem to be. Small things will lead to greater ones.
Months back I made a small attempt of writing a couple of thoughts or let's say quotes. I used to post it on social media as in the form of stories. Initially, I got only a handful of responses to what thoughts I showered on the sheets. Midway I gave a break to it and posted one after a long time, surprised to see how many of them were actually waiting to read what I put up. Plenty of replies encouraging me to come back and write more. I was happy that I actually had a chance to motivate not all but at least a few folks after which I realized that boosting impact is a prime concern. Maybe I was un-noticed or unappreciated initially but when I came to know the facts I did continue my writing work. People will be watching you from every nook and corner and emulating if they find you convincing. If you feel you need attention, then sorry folks, you are on the wrong window.
Create a difference without being told that's when you achieve something and that's when you're going to turn pages. Influence people to be who they are. If people are who they actually are or want to be, you can surely see a lot of difference in opinions which leads to the betterment of the fellowship.
Making a difference isn't a job, may it be socially, physically, economically or politically. It might also end up in sacrifice and pain. It's a slow and an uphill task. According to a saying, slow and steady wins the race unless it is designed well. With a proper plan you also need to have the master key to success which is 'patience'. Make yourself wait. Only if you have patience you get a pause that helps you get back your thoughts in order and feelings in control. The essence of struggle is felt only when you sit back and savour every moment of it.
Patience goes conjointly with emotional intelligence. Place yourself into different shoes and hey you're almost there.
Camouflage into your surroundings to get a wider optical image of what actual difference you need to create.
Adapt, admire, advise and you'll see yourself growing. Creating a difference is all about walking the extra mile. Push yourself every day into learning something new, into facing tougher challenges. Success is no accident or luck. Try thinking out of the box. Everything seems impossible until it's done.
Making a difference is viable only if we can inhabit the above pins. If so, then we can create differences in any sector.
Do not limit yourself to the skies when you have a whole galaxy out there.
