Difference Makers Are Different

Be willing to leave your mark!

If you stop your pursuit after you have faced an obstacle or refuse to continue after you hear no, you may never make the difference you are capable of making.

You don’t have to create something that will change the world, but if you make where you are better than you found it, you are a difference maker. As Robert Kennedy stated,

“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”

People may have called you different, and some may find it hard to understand you. That’s not  a bad thing. Throughout history, difference makers have been considered “different”, and at times they weren’t easily understood. Not much has changed in regards to difference makers, and what is certain about difference makers are that they are not afraid to do what they feel in their heart is right, even if it’s never been done. Shine your light, because your light could be that light someone else needs in order to see where they are suppose to go! Difference makers take their dreams all the way. It doesn’t matter how you started off! It doesn’t matter who still doesn’t believe in you. You must believe! Are you willing to take your dream all the way?

What have you done that made a difference in someone else’s life?

  1. A tremendous quote from Robert Kennedy and who better to quote than the Kennedy family that has lived through triumph and tragedy. His very first line says it all about the Kennedy family themselves.

    I find your post here most inspiring, Richard, for many reasons. I have spent my entire career dedicated to helping others, solving so many of the greatest challenges my clients have ever had to face.

    Mr. Kennedy’s analogy of those “tiny ripples of hope” and the collective force that builds is life altering…we truly do make a difference as individuals. I strongly believe that our growth and ultimate successes in life and career stem from one critical core element and that is how we embrace those things which truly inspire us deeply.

    If we can harness the energy of those tiny ripples, those powerfully inspiring influences on our life that can and do occur every single day of our lives we can draw from that energy to fuel our inner focus…and channel that powerful energy to overcome obstacles, disappointments, frustrations and fears that hold us back in life.

    That energy will be the driving force from which we gather steam, gather momentum…brings to mind the story of ‘The Little Engine That Could’.
