Think of the world as your playground. The only limitations that there are in this world are the ones you create for yourself and carry around with you throughout your life. What you always need to remember is that greatness arises not from what you do externally but from what you dare to do internally.
You hear it all the time from different corners of the world- people saying that they want to change the world and do this, and do that, but the truth of the matter is that most of them never actually get to do it. They can talk the talk, but are too afraid to walk the walk. There is a difference between saying things and actually doing them. A huge difference if you ask us.
If you are a talker and just like to bullshit your way through life than you will never be able to have any impact on the world. If you want to change the world you are going to have to change yourself first. The way you think and the way you do. You need to figure out your purpose in life and how you are going to use that to influence others around you and have your message spread throughout the world.
As the great Andy Warhol said it, everyone in the future will be famous for 15 minutes. You will surely have your 15 minutes of fame in this world but it’s not how much you enjoy those 15 minutes that counts, it’s about how far you decide to stretch those 15 minutes of fame. Can you actually do something good with it or will you rather turn out like Lindsay Lohan and fuck Charlie Sheen for $100,000.
The vision to change the world and have your name cemented in history is truly a beautiful thing and a bold vision requiring a ton of ambition. You need to understand that you have to be ready for this vision and that it’s not going to come with ease or be found at the end of a simple journey.
There are going to be times you are going to want to quit- don’t. There are going to be times you are unsure about yourself- don’t doubt what you believe in. If it feels right to you then it will somehow find a way to work itself out.
Life has a big picture and several small pictures. What you need to do if you plan on changing the world is use the small pictures as building blocks for the big picture. If you try to just jump straight into the big picture you’ll never accomplish your vision.
The reason being, there are no short cuts in life and no easy way out. That big score you are trying to make out of nothing will never come; hate to be the one to break it to you (That’s a lie- I am very happy to break it down for you). The basis of life is working your way up to something step by step- not leaping right to it.
You can only change the world by changing yourself. Start with how you look at the process and you will change the world by changing the way you treat yourself and ever person you interact with on a daily basis. That is how you change the world.
We all want to change the world, it is a huge ambition and there are only a handful of elite people that will be able to actually accomplish it. The reason being because they are the ones that never stopped and always stood behind what they believed in, no matter how tough times would get.
You can go down the path of living a boring life and seeing your mid-life crisis at the age of 27 or you can actually take comntrol of your life and make something out of nothing.
No goal, no ambition and no dream is too crazy or impossible unless you tell yourself it is. The first step to changing the world is to actually start doing rather than just sitting there and being a non-factor. Life is short and we all know we will die one day.
The goal is to create something that will live forever. It could be a concept, an idea or a product. You can change the world only if you truly believe in what you are doing. Once you have changed it there is no greater feat, or feeling. It is the one thing no one can take away from you.
Always remember, legends live forever.
