How you change the world?

Do you ever feel like you want to change the world? I think many people feel driven to change the world when they’re young, but as they get older, the drive goes away. Changing the world in a big way is tough, and it takes a certain type of person to keep at it and not get discouraged. I admire people who put it all out there for a cause they believe in and never give up the fight. If you’re one of those who is changing the world in a big way (or even just trying to), my hat’s off to you 🙂

Even if you don’t want to change the world in a big way, I believe we all change the world in small ways. I think we are all interconnected, and our small actions have a much bigger ripple effect than a lot of us realize. So if you’re kind to a stranger or working quietly on an important small project, I believe you are changing the world. Little actions add up to big actions, and you are probably more of a role model for those around you than you realize.

So when I wrote How Should You Change The World?, I meant it as a quiz for everyone. Because we all change the world – whether we are simply kind to our neighbors or invent the next Facebook. I believe that the small contributions to the world go unjustly unnoticed, and I wanted to write a quiz to celebrate that a bit. You don’t have to “go big or go home” just to make a difference.

Please take How Should You Change The World?, and let me know what you get. Also, I’d love to know what you think about changing the world in small ways. Do you think it’s possible? Is there anything you do on a small scale to make the world a better place?

What do you think?

    You Should Change The World By Promoting Compassion

    You feel deeply for people, especially the less fortunate. You wish everyone was more compassionate.
    You work hard to be the change you want to see in the world. You think it’s all starts with you.

    You value personal growth. If you’re not changing, it’s likely something is going wrong in your life.
    You enjoy helping the elderly and animals. You get a lot of satisfaction from volunteering your time.

    True for me, especially the part about animals.

    You Should Change the World By Helping Others

    You can truly be there for another person. When you care, you are incredibly giving and compassionate.
    You’re incredibly thoughtful and able to give people what they need most. Generosity simply makes you feel good.

    You are willing to be a voice for those who don’t have one. You always speak up to defend others’ rights.
    You believe in helping on a community level. You are happy to feed the hungry and cloth the homeless.

    I’m not a communitarian (is that the right word?).

      It is the right word! I think this result can apply even if you’re more of an individualist… it all depends on who you feel is deserving of your help 🙂

        Tbh I’m kinda selfish, but I do give some to charities for needy children (though I forget to sometimes). And though I’m usually quiet and socially anxious I feel the need to speak up for the innocent. And I would only help on a community level if there’s no other way.

    You have a defiant streak. If someone tells you that you can’t do something, it makes you that more determined.
    You have a passionate inner drive, and you know deep down that you’re destined for greatness.

    You take on huge projects and see them through. You lead the way when it comes to success.
    You are well suited to tackle the worlds most difficult problems and injustices. You will never give up.
