It is very easy for us to see ourselves as insignificant and incapable of influencing change, no wonder we do things without even considering if it will have a down side upon the lives of others.
I somehow was in this category and with that mindset. I had the belief that there are many people up there doing great and amazing things that will captivate people’s attention and so I am oblivious and invisible.
However, all this was proven wrong, when at a gathering a number of persons came up to me and spoke about how I have influenced them in one way or the other. A lot still look up to me and are grateful for each encounter.
Being the change and influencing the world isn’t about where we are, who we are or how perfect we are. There is always someone who sees us as a source of encouragement. This puts responsibility on us to be better and great. No matter how insignificant you think you are, there is always someone watching and looking up to you.
An African proverb has this to say; “if you think you are to small to make a difference, you have never been in a room with a mosquito.”
