Change Your Own World In 3 Quick Ways
If you walk around with the weight of thinking you have to change the world on your shoulders, please don't.
Don't bother changing the world, just change your own world.
Far too many people let overwhelm and totally unrealistic expectations stop them from diving into their unexplored, bottomless well of creativity.
If that is you, here are some truths for you:
You can't change the world alone
Creativity is an act of practice.
You can only create something for you
It really doesn't matter if you come up with rubbish.
Real change won't happen, if you change for someone else
Everybody makes a lot of rubbish before they become good.
Creating is not about making good or bad stuff. It’s about the journey and the process you go throughwhile you create
I 100% believe that we each can change many, many people’s lives and that what each of do matters to the world. I believe we each have so much power and that if we all do something to look after our environment, we will make a HUGE difference in the climate change.
I also believe if you send out kind, positive energy that you create more kindness and positive energy in the world.
That is what I mean by “don’t change the world, just change your own”.
Change your own world first
If you hear marketing messages about changing the world, and all you’re trying to do is be a little happier in your life, then I this message is for you.
Change happens is tiny, small steps. Focus on changing your own world first. One tiny step ata time. This will effect yourself and your family. That’s enough.
Change starts with you. And it starts with me.
I'm having this conversation a lot with my 15-year-old son. When he claims he can't make music without some expensive app he needs to buy, I tell him to write songs with a pen and paper.
Jerry Seinfeld wrote the entire series of Seinfeld on a yellow pad, using the same pen.
I love that story. In this gadget world of tech, apps and what have you, it's still about the work.
You gotta be willing to dive into the work, the process.
3 ways you can change your own world
Decide what change you want to make (most of us don't actually do this)
Make sure you include a creative act in your plan for change
Talk to somebody, share your decision.
I have spoken to many women, the last one a couple of days ago, who feel that doing a little creative work has saved them. Literally changed their world for the better. And sometimes from a really hard situation.
They didn't think they had to do big things, or be seen by millions, or reach people in every corner of the world.
They just tried spending a little time playing around with some creative expression. Because it felt good.
(I literally feel my shoulders lower as I write this)
This is creativity. This is creative living. At it's very best.
Imagine changing your world just 5% for the better. How good would that be?
