Inspiration to #ChangeTheWorld: Quotes for World Changers

30 Sep

Every year when Fall comes around, there’s lots of discussion about whether everyone is voting (in election years like this year!) and/or what we should do to make our city (for me, #ThisIsCLE- go #Cleveland!) better.  The holidays tend to add some additional inspiration, too.  There are lots of creative ideas bandied about.  Sometimes, though, a little bit of added inspiration is what gets people going.  Things like positive quotes might help create that inspiration!

It’s fun to think about changing the world.  In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who would answer “no” if you asked them, “Would you like to change the world?”

The hard part is knowing how to do that; how, exactly, does one actually “change the world?”

If you want to know what some of the smartest, most ambitious, and most creative people say about any topic, a collection of quotes might just offer some inspiring sparks.

If you have a favorite #worldchanger quote I missed, please share it in the comments or tag me @CharityIdeas.

Everything we do makes a difference.  Even small, simple acts can add up to big change if enough people take action.  If you’re feeling inspired to take action and want some  new ideas, that’s exactly what I set out to help with in my book.
