You Can Change The World

You know for all the pithy sayings and positive attitude ‘gurus’ almost no one I know personally really believes that one person can change the world.

The most I can get from the so called success oriented folks is, “Sure twenty or thirty years ago one person could have a real impact, but things are different today.” What a load of crap!

Did Steve Jobs change the world? How about Bill Gates? Did President Obama? There are thousands of examples on a smaller level, but then the nay-sayers might not agree that they actually changed the world.

You may ask the reason I am writing this now – well, today I watched the movie Zero Dark Thirty. And after a little research into the accuracy of the main character ‘Maya’ I was led to write this post. Because this is proof positive that one person, a stubborn, contentious and perhaps irritating woman can still, today, change the world. the movie makes it very clear that it was her obstinate refusal to give up, or take no for an answer that led the US forces to finally after over ten years of trying, track down and end Osama bin Laden. And that my friends truly changed the world.

George Bernard Shaw said: “People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.”
