Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 29,309 People

    I do not want to be famous.

    I do not want people to know my name. I just want to make the future a brighter place. I try to do this every day, one young person at a time. I teach middle school so I can make a difference.

    The work I do is pretty important I feel,

    helping restore the sculptures at the cathedral. Our heritage is important. Far too much of life is made plastic by the media, and popular culture. I guess it is making a difference, but I'd like to do more!

    Ever since I started thinking about what I

    wanted to do with my life I have had three things that stuck out above the rest. Become James Bond, become a pilot, or build a school in another country. As appealing as the first two are the school has always been my dream I just can't decide where I would do it...

    I'm trying to change the world by creating a

    "brand", a message, a community that focuses on empowering others to follow their truth. I want it to be for anyone who wants or needs to be apart of it. My wish is for people to live without fear, and I want to guide people to do that in their own way.

    I always believe, wealth is relative.

    Anyone who is filthy rich is poor if he does not know how to share. And anyone who is poor is rich when he can still give. There are still people like it. In the final analysis, one can only be authentically rich in accordance to his ability to share or to give. The ability to...

    I believe we have the ability to impact the

    world we live in, we just need passion and courage. Sometimes also, change occurs around us after it occurs within us.

    “No one is born hating another person

    because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” -Nelson Mandela

    Can one person ACTUALLY make a difference?

    The strongest determinant of physical health, is wealth. If I can't change how wealthy someone is, how could I possibly help them to be more healthy?

    The world is really a small place to live.

    The lack of this world is unity among people. If people are unite, there will be no hate and everyone would respect each other. Criticism, envy are not best practices that people do. If you want to change the world, be a change yourself.

    I donate to a charity

    whenever I get the oppertunity. It's only 5 dollars for now (because my allowance is only 10), but I believe that amount you give doesn't matter that much at least I am giving and not keeping the money for myself or spending it on useless acessories I don't need. :)

    I don't wanna be just another person,

    I believe God created everyone for a specific reason. I want to be the reason someone keep pushing through. I want to have an impact on someone's life. I want someone to say because of you I didn't give up. If I could only accomplish one thing it'd be that.

    The only way most of us can make a difference

    is to start with ourselves. Change comes from within, and people can't change others. We've all heard the quote: "Be the change you want to see in the world."
