AUDIO: 3 Ways You Can Change the World

by Greg Yates | Breakthrough Leadership

My oldest memories remind me I’ve always been trying to figure out what I was capable of. I remember realizing as a child I wasn’t the most popular, best looking or best dressed. I compared myself to others, wondering what my niche might be.

I was good at most things, but not great. When I found something I was exceptional at, I figured that’s what I was born to do. I imagined that would be my lifelong career.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that we focus on what we don’t have, instead of what we do. You find yourself saying, “why doesn’t somebody”…instead of imagining you’re that somebody. You say, If I could… If I had… If I were…

But what if the problem isn’t what you would do, it’s what you don’t do? Changing the world has always been reserved for those who had no power except the force of their will and the echo of divine authority resonating through them. At the heart of every revolution was a thought, an idea, a belief that caught fire and became contagious.

What you have far outweighs what you lack.

It’s Happening NOW

Here’s what you don’t realize. You influence every room you enter, every conversation you have, every emotion that oozes from your existence. It’s already happening. Every day, every moment your essence is permeating the lives of those around you. You’re already changing the world.

What if you could choose the impact of your magnetism? What if you vibrated with a frequency that gave hope, fostered belief or instilled courage? Would it matter your age, ethnicity, your skills or economic power? We all know people who have impacted us in that way.

The world is changed by those who don’t even know they are changing it. Seed is planted that bears fruit for generations.

YOU can Change the World

If you want to change the world, here’s how it happens:

1. Start where you are. You lead others to breakthrough when you wake up to both the horror and the beauty of where you are. It’s impossible to reach a new destination unless you know where you’re standing and what’s in the way. Breakthrough begins where you are and ultimately changes the world.

2. Change what you see. What you see changes who you are. Fearless leaders are born from vision. Beyond yourself lies the truth of your created purpose. Speak it, share it, believe it, be preoccupied by it. The vision that captures your heart and mind becomes the obsession that changes the world.

3. Be passionate about what you do. There is no breakthrough without passion. You will find the means, the allies, and the increments to success if you have passion. Changing the world requires one thing beyond all else. It requires PASSION.

Know where you are. Pursue the vision of what can be. Inspire passion by releasing the passion within yourself.

You have the power to change the world. Exude passion, peace, trust and gratitude. It will always fulfill its purpose and fulfill your destiny.
