“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”
Changing the world seems to be an abstract idea. I mean, sure, you want to change the world, but what are you doing to make it happen? So often, I see people with no hope from life, when I believe that every individual has the ability and potential to change the world, only if they know how and where to go with their lives. But, sadly, no one knows where to go and what to do with their lives.
Whenever, I make some plans for the future, no matter how near or far that future maybe, all I hear from people is, “There is still a lot of time, concentrate on the present, then think about the future.” But, I think it never works that way with life. The present is to be enjoyed, not taken seriously. Only when you have a vision for future will you be able to work hard at present. If you don’t have a future to look forward, you lose interest in life and stop working. And this is why I keep a vision for the future.
When we say, “change the world”, what do we exactly mean? When I think of the world, I don’t the a big picture, I just want to change small things, make people smile, inspire people to live rather than just exist and change the way I see the world. I believe that, you can change the world only if you are ready to change in the process. We have to compromise and sometimes, give up things we love the most to see a change in the world. Sometimes, we become the change.
Mahatma Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in this world.”
If somebody tells you, that you’re crazy to think of the future and forgetting the present, don’t tell them you’re wrong, just show them the results. Because there are not many people who dare to dream, and more importantly, who dare to dream about changing the world and if you have the vision to change the world, then make a plan and work on it, every day.
So, the next time, you feel hopeless about changing the world, or receive no support from others, just remember, that you don’t need support, all you need is just a motivation and a plan, because these are the only thing that will change the world.
