what new Idea can change the world?

So that was the big question i had to answer- what is that big idea that can change the world?

I remember telling my younger brother once that-“time by itself doesn’t change anything. The only change that occurs with time is decay, and that is bad change. People and effort in time is what make things better.”

Our communities and the world in general are subject to the laws of motion. They will continue in a given direction (usually downward because there is an undoubted destructive force at work), unless an external force acts on it. People are that force that can change the world. Evil thrives when good people fold their hands and do nothing. Maybe we think that nothing happens when we do nothing. Wrong! Something happens, but not just what we want.images

Change is inevitable. We have but two choices of change to choose from- A deliberate active positive change for the better or a consequential passive change that wreaks havoc in the lives of people and our planet as a whole.

But we humans can only do what we can do. A car with any empty tank can do no good to your need to move up an hill. Such a car will remain of no good if nothing happens to it because it is also subject to a motion-like law of remaining in a given state unless change is effected from outside. People are just like that car trying to move this world uphill. All our goodwill and intention count for nothing if we don’t have gas to pedal up. We ourselves continue in a path of decay and death when we are not growing and developing. People need to be equipped and trained to make impact in their world. They need to know that they don’t have to wait for that big break as they can start with their tiny bits today.

In conclusion, my big idea is that people are the most important entities on the earth. no new idea can change the world. it is this same old species of mankind that can and will change its world. We are our biggest assets and all the change we desire will only happen when we make them happen. We are the real deal when it comes to global change; not internet, not technology, not governments or institutions; people built all that.

Our local communities should place a heavy, deliberate and purposeful focus on investing in its people; helping them to attain their best self. Imagine a world where everyone is at his best! The possibilities are endless!
