It is true that we live in a world where you will be loved by few but judged my many. The Imprisonment by people’s opinions can paralyze any positive movement and the result can be discouragement in the human soul to attempt positive change in the world around them. However, a slight change or correction in our perspective can mean the difference in our motivation. If we look at the planet and think how we can change it alone, then the motivation quickly dies at the feet of the overwhelming impossibility looming in the mind’s eye. But, as the picture above properly demonstrates, we affect the people planet one person at a time. I may not be able to change things globally overnight in one fair sweep but I can affect five people around me on any given day. Those five go and affect five respectively and now you indirectly have affected twenty five people in a few days. Before you know it the human dominoes are increasing exponentially and influence that started as a ripple has now increased to a tidal wave.
Step out today and treat five people the way you want to be treated. When you have influenced them, just like the dominoes beginning to fall, you have created a movement. Let’s be the change we want to see in the world.
Below are a compilation of quotes to inspire you to start the domino affect.
