Social media has tricked most of us into thinking we can be famous.
Even when some of us are not good at what we are doing.
And we often believe the misconception that being famous is a necessity to bring a change in other people’s lives.
5 Simple Ways to Creating an Impactful Life
So how do you truly create an impact on others’ lives?
I have an answer – By creating an impactful life for yourself.
So that you can create opportunities for others.
By dreaming big and achieving that dream.
You have no idea how many lives you can change if you honestly took the opportunity that knocked at your door.
Because the truth is: when you go to bed at night, when your stomach is full and your heart is at peace, the things that you think about then are what matter to you more than the things that you do throughout the day if they are not the same.
So, you have got to align both your heart and mind in the same direction.
It could be anything like the career you’re planning to choose, the job you’re searching for, the startup idea you are trying to execute, the right person you’re looking to hire for your company, or it could be anything which you want to do.
Here are 5 Simple Ways to Create an Impactful Life
- Donate Supplies
Children are the future of this world. You can donate supplies to schools and help in the education of these children. Many NGOs are working for the education of students in rural areas, you can easily collaborate with them to help. It will cost you only your efforts.
- Feed Someone
Help a needy who has no food to eat, or no shelter to live in. Helping them will bring contentment to your life. They won’t remember your name, but they will never forget your face.
- Teach Others
Become a mentor to someone less privileged than you. Share your life’s learnings. Teach someone a thing or two. It will stay with them throughout.
- Share Your Story
Being yourself in itself is a great achievement. If you have learnt kindness, then you have learnt everything in life. So, tell your story to the world.
- Learn to Control Your Emotions
The strongest people are not those who can lift heavy weights. But they are those who can control their emotions. Because by doing this, they can take control of every situation and be just to others. They will treat others fairly.
To Be or Not to Be!
And if you’re still wondering where to start or will all of this be worth it, then just remember these words by Beth Clark –
“And I’ve noticed something about people who make a difference in the world:
They hold the unshakable conviction that individuals are extremely important and that every life matters.
They get excited over one smile.
They are willing to feed one stomach, educate one mind, and treat one wound.
They aren’t determined to revolutionize the world all at once; they’re satisfied with minor changes.
Over time, though, the small changes add up.
Sometimes they even transform cities, nations, and the world.”
So, after going through the day, when you go to bed,
What is the one thing you think about the most?
What is the one thing that keeps you awake for a little longer?
