Depends on how loud you can yell..
No really, one person can impact one or a few at a time (without being rich enough to send a lot of cash anyway).
To really impact the world in a BIG way, you have to reach others who will stand with you and reach others and so on. The internet makes this MUCH easier, but it still takes a lot of work and dedication to make a big impact.
So in answer to your question.. The amount that a person can positively impact the world is determined by dedication to a worthy cause.
Except of course in the case of parents or other mentors who may guide and lead someone who has the dedication and morals needed. In this way, a person could indirectly impact the world in countless ways.
I agree, it takes dedication to hugely impact the world. Of course, it can happen by chance as well. Thank you for the answer!
True.. we all learned that from Michael J Fox in the 80s.... I'd change some stuff if only I had a flux capasitor for the Delorean in my garage!!!!!
You can improve your little corner of the world. Once your eye turns outside that, though, others become increasingly involved as your horizon expands, and their agendas have to be merged with yours or you can make no progress.
The end result of that expansion of focus is, seemingly but not paradoxically, the loss of focus and effectiveness. No one can have a great impact on the world at large. His purposes must be so diluted by the time he gains enough influence to affect it they no longer are his.
That is why recent United States presidents all have been sociopaths. By the time they gain such power, they have traded themselves away and no longer have a clue who they are or what they should be doing.
The most any of us can do, assuming he does not want to end up insane and evil, is to light a candle. Build that up into a conflagration, and you always are consumed by it along with a great many innocent people who did not deserve to be burned by your narcissism.
Go green. Help to save the world from destruction. I believe that every single bit I do to save the earth goes a long way. I also spread through words of mouth with friends and colleagues so they do the same thing to go green.
Everyone starts to chip in their parts in Go Green then I do believe it will have a positive impact.
Living mindfully, being aware of how our every thought, word and deed affects ourselves and our lives. The first step is of course to be fully aware of who we are at present and how we are impacting the world around us.
Are we completely self-focused or do we spare some thought to others' well-being? Only when we are sure of where we stand we can start making a difference. Eventually the change within us will change the circumstances and the people around us. First step is to accept life as it is.
We can make a positive impact in the world both as individuals and as a group of like-minded people. The change must begin with us and every choice we make affects our fellow human beings, other sentient beings and the planet. We can definitely have a significant impact on alleviating the suffering the world today. read more
