How to Create Change

Updated on April 12, 2011

Change is a natural fact of life.  People change, times change, even the planet changes.  However, something is always the catalyst for change.  Something must give that initial push to begin to see change occur.

A president was elected who ran on the platform of change.  And to be honest, it is a platform any politician can run on, because there will be some change enacted during their stay in office.  Instead of getting disappointed that the government is not helping, or not doing what you desire or wish, become the catalyst yourself for change.

Granted, as a person there is a limit to what can legally be done to create change.  But what is a group of people, if not a collection of persons?  Utilizing the internet is a superb means of locating others with your desires and dreams, which would then allow networking to bring about change.

Part of the problem, is people do not wish to make changes themself, but expect the government or other people to bend to their ways.  While this would be a wonderful occurrence if possible, in reality we need to make the changes we want to effect in our lives. 

Change starts at home.  Buying and spending habits can be altered, travel plans adjusted, carpooling groups can be formed.  If one finds themselves running low on money, and no new form of money is coming in, look at what can be changed to even it out.  Is eating out or snacking or even gambling a problem?  Is every light in the house on even with nobody there? Is there 500 channels on your cable/satellite package and yet you watch the same two shows only?  Cut out things not needed, change your money flow to suit what you want.

Look around locally, grocery bills outrageous? Create a meetup group that meets every week through skype, in person, at a fast food restaraunt, exchange coupons and sales ideas.  Give every person a store they are responsible for, share notes, and save time and money.

If personally all is well, but the local community suffers, volunteer your time at the local soup kitchen, help with Habitat for Humanity, or organize a clothing or food drive with a local church to donate to the community.

There are so many ways to create change in your life, and locally.  Begin small, get the snowball rolling, and before you know it change will sweep across the country.
