Be the change that you see in the world.

That quote gets thrown around a lot and I doubt many people that say that know what it truly means, or, at least practice what they preach.  I know I am guilty of this at times.  Aren’t we all? With so many inspirational and motivational stories out there, it is easy to get excited to make a difference, and yet just as easy to fall back into a sense of complacency.

Can any one person change the world?  I mean really change it. Can one person make a difference?  I like to believe so because believing that gives me hope that we have purpose. If one person can’t change the world, then doesn’t that mean our existence is virtually meaningless?

I also believe that, when we don’t strive to reach our highest potential, we will simply remain sheep, herded through life by someone else. When you die don’t you want to be remembered for leaving the world a better place then the one in which you lived?

I know I want to be someone that makes a difference, and I want to be remembered for making a positive change.
