“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total; of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.” –Robert Kennedy
We are born with the longing to change the world. Although some have a better chance of it than others, because of the family they were born into, everyone still has a chance.
What is classified as history? Yesterday was history. Eating dinner last night was history. Everything we do will affect history. Even reading this post will be history. Think about it. Just because our actions are not recorded by human hands, they’re still in the book of history. All those born into the world are a part of history. Look at history like it’s a book. If you flip through the first few chapters, you’ll see the Big Bang or Adam and Eve, then the ancient Egyptians, all the way until the added pages of the book: You.
This quote applies to everyone, young and old. Now here’s something to think about for the rest of the day: Rethink your “change the world” yearn. Are you still going to want to change the world, or will changing a handful of people’s lives be enough? There are very, very, very few people who really do change the world.
Will you choose to inspire and change the lives of a few people instead?
