How YOU Are Changing the World

Close

Change is what happens when things move.

Energy is what makes things move, and if nothing moves …nothing changes.

Power is the ability to make change happen.

In order to change anything, then, you must have some control over energy.

You must have some power.

Power is what YOU are

It’s commonly accepted in Science that all things are made of energy. This includes YOU.

This means that YOU are a body of energy.

But what is it that controls this body of energy that YOU are?

What is the power controlling YOU?

Answer: Your THOUGHTS.

All your actions begin with your THOUGHTS. This is where your power is.

When you change how you think, you change what you do.

The face of this earth is far different now than it was even a hundred years ago due to all the actions that people have taken – actions guided by their thoughts.

But where did those thoughts come from?

Your Attention, Please.

What you pay attention to determines what you think about.

CHOOSE what you pay attention to and you control your thoughts.

Your real power lies in CHOOSING what to think about.

Your Power to Change Things

All human change begins with how people think.

When you influence how people think, you change the future.

You don’t need to do or say anything to influence someone’s thoughts – you need only BE.

Your presence alone changes everything.

Imagine this scenario:

Your parents discover they are pregnant with you and look forward to your arrival in a few months. You are not out yet, but you are still present within your mother’s womb as well as in the minds and hearts of everyone who knows you’re coming.

Let’s say that one day after work your Dad stops by the local pub to have a beer with some of his friends. He announces rather loudly that he is expecting to have a new son or daughter and explains how, even though he wanted to wait a little longer before having this child (you), he realized that a person is never going to be fully ready and sometimes it’s just better to say “What the heck!” and jump in with both feet.

Meanwhile, two tables over from where your Dad was sitting, a gentleman drinking alone overheard your Dad’s words and felt these words take root in his mind and heart. He too, had been putting off having a child with his wife because he didn’t feel ready, despite his wife’s numerous attempts to change his mind. This man finishes his drink, lays his money on the table, and rushes home to inform his wife of his change of heart. She is thrilled! In 9 short months, they have their first child – all because you exist.

Now imagine that you are 4 years old playing ball with some kids in the front yard of a suburban home and the ball rolls out towards the street. You run out into the street after it without checking for traffic. A man in a car driving towards you slams on his brakes and manages to stop just in time to save your life. You pick up the ball, smile at the driver, and run back to your friends without giving the incident another thought.

Meanwhile, the man in the car catches his breath and waits a moment while his heartbeat slows a little before driving on. He is a wealthy philanthropist who went for a drive to think about what kind of legacy to leave behind – what might he do with his money to help make the world a better place?

Still slightly shaken by the incident, he begins to consider that children need safer places to play and that there aren’t enough playgrounds for children to have fun and play safely in.

This man then decides to set up a foundation to build playgrounds for children all around the world. This act saves many children’s lives, sparks new friendships, and allows many children to grow up to have families of their own. Today, there are many playgrounds around the world, and many people who exist that wouldn’t even be alive if YOU weren’t here.

While the above scenario isn’t actually true in detail, it’s meaning about you is:

Your presence changes everything.

Your next question

The next question to ask yourself is HOW are you being present today? How are you influencing people’s thoughts?

What if you took more conscious control over the influence of your presence to help guide people’s thoughts toward an even better future?

How might you consider BEING different?

You become what you think about most

CHOOSE to think more about what you want than what you don’t want – at least 51% of the time.

These thoughts become your actions – the very actions that help shape our future.

By minding your thoughts, you are minding your automatic influence over others – influence over their thoughts.

Thoughts are contagious – stop complaining.

Start speaking about what you want more often because you’ll influence others to THINK about a better future too.

This is where real change begins.

You can never be powerless. You are power itself.

You are a living force of change – you are always influencing the world around you.

Are you mindfully helping to shape our future?

I love the Power You Are. I invite you to harness it.

Begin with a smile. It has the power to change everything.
