Proof of Your Potential Impact

I’m sure that just about everyone on this planet, at some time or another, felt insignificant. It’s easy to sit back and say, “No one cares about what I have to say, so I’m not going to try.”

Money, time, convenience, lack of intelligence, not connected enough-these are the common excuses someone might have for not wanting to try to make a difference, and while they might be valid, they are certainly not very good ones.

Even mosquitoes have a place in this world and even mosquitoes can make a difference.

Most everyone has heard of a chain reactions, such as the domino effect or ripple reactions, such as the butterfly effect. This video is a great example this effect.

It shows that even the tiniest of actions can result in the knocking over a 100 pound domino. Actually, he goes on to say that if the movement continued, it would even knock something as huge the Empire State Building.

We have many opportunities in our day to day lives to make a difference. No one is born doing great things. We most hone are skills, work really hard, but little by little we will see that first effort we made, or domino in this case, develop and turn into bigger and better things.

Please leave a comment and share your ideas on how to make a difference on small or large scale!
