You have something to give to the world, and no one else can play your part. It’s easy to doubt yourself and think that other people are better leaders than you, that they’re smarter, bolder, more charismatic… but they are not you. You have the power to change someone’s life, to make someone feel special. You don’t have to do a huge thing to make a big difference – even the smallest acts can mean the world to someone else. Kindness and love change the world, one act at a time. Showing someone kindness tells them that they matter, they belong, they are connected. Don’t doubt yourself – the world is a better place with you in it.
Game Plan: How can you make a difference in the world? Can you help someone who is having trouble? Make conversation with the crossing guard that you pass on your way to work? Knit hats and mittens to donate to a shelter? You have a place, and you can make a difference.
