Do You Daydream About Changing the World?

How are you changing the world?

From your little corner of this planet, do you find yourself fantasizing about what you would do to make this world a better place, IF only… {fill in the blank for whatever keeps you from taking action}?

What is it that you are waiting for?

  • question-markMoney
  • Time
  • Support
  • Permission

 

Let’s play a little game. Imagine that all of your physical needs are met; you have everything you need to live comfortably. In fact, you have more than you need. You have extra time, money, and energy to invest wherever you like.

With this freedom, where does your mind wander?

  • Do you have hopes and dreams you’ve been meaning to get to… someday… if only?
  • What would light a fire under you, motivating you to get out of bed every morning to start changing the world?
  • Do you feel pulled or pushed in any particular direction?
  • Do you realize you already make a difference every day? Have you tried doing it on purpose?

Now that we’ve identified that you feel a call to some kind of action, to influence others, to make a difference – let’s bring your daydreams back to your current reality. Why can’t you start right now, right where you are, with what you have?

What can you do today, no matter what your situation, to begin changing the world?

Challenge: Pause to reflect on what it feels like to be free from worry, doubts, and restrictions. You have time, money, and energy to devote to whatever pursuits your soul desires. Contemplate how you would dedicate your life to changing the world.

Homework: 

  1. Answer each of the questions – you may want to start a journal or a blog to reflect on your journey.
  2. Share your thoughts with us! (Leave a comment, make a post in the Facebook Group, or even shout out on Twitter!)
  3. Make a bold announcement about how YOU would like to change the world.

I look forward to hearing what you daydream about!

    Hi Janet! Our names are L and V and we really like your post. We’re teen sisters who have always wanted to have a positive impact on people. For a while we daydreamed about changing the world and then we finally decided to take a leap and do it. The result was Think Before You Type which is our anti-cyberbullying  and positive self esteem campaign! We would love it if you took the time to check us out!

    Wonderful message Janet! I like to think I’m helping people with my books and my blog about life design. But I’m also a BIG believer in the power each of us has to do something on the grassroots level to change our world. I’ve done a lot of community outreach work so I’ve seen firsthand what can be done. In fact I’m just starting work on a new book on this subject that will be filled with stories and ideas about what people can do – one person, one day at a time.

      Marty, how is this book coming along? I love the premise of sharing stories – reinforcing that we can make a difference by starting at home, first… and if so called, spreading further to our communities and beyond.

    I plan on changing the world in two ways: endow people with killer relationship superpowers (doing it!). Explain Irish myth, tradition and history in a crazy retellable way that can be used to understand where we come from for generations. BAM.

    (It was hard to find those words! Thanks for the nudge!)

      “Killer relationship superpowers” – AWESOME! How do you go about doing this, Lisa?

      And, curious minds would like to know more about your passion for Irish mythology. :)
