10 Ways You Can Make a Difference Today

You want to make a difference. I get it. We all do.

I know, I know, you don’t have the time.

You don’t have the resources. You’re only one person. The excuses roll on and on.

Luckily for you, I have conveniently  provided 10  simple ways in which you make a difference today.

WARNING:

Upon finishing this article, your excuses on why you can’t make a difference will disappear. Read at your own risk.

Start a Blog:

We all have a message, and blogging is one of the most efficient ways to share it. Through the medium of blogging we can inspire and educate hundreds, thousands, perhaps even millions of individuals all over the globe. My life has benefited tremendously from the hundreds of blogs in which I have read. Share your story. Start blogging today.

Smile:

Do I really need to explain this one? See how many times you can smile today.

Hug:

We all need hugs. Hugging instantly can change anyone’s day for the better. Try making it a habit to hug at least five people each day. Who knows, your hug could make someone’s day (assuming you’ve showered of course).

Listen:

I mean truly listen. Turn off your judgment box and just receive the words of a friend or family member. No advice required. Simply be there for someone. You don’t need to voice your opinion. Simply listen.

Perform a Random Act of Kindness

This was recently a theme at my school. I was amazed at all the acts of kindness. Go out of your way to do something nice for someone, expecting nothing in return. Hold the door for someone. Compliment (and mean it) someone’s appearance. Tell someone how much they mean to do you. Do something that’s expected of you without being ask. How many random acts of kindness can you do?

Serve:

Do some community work. Volunteer at an elderly home. Teach something. Do some physical labor. Give your time for the benefit of the world.

Give Away Good Books:

I can’t tell you how many books I have given away. I love sharing my favorite books with people. Why should you be the only one benefiting from an amazing book. If you’ve just read a great book, pass it on!

Free Rice!:

What better way to help somebody than to give food while improving your vocabulary at the same time. Simply spending 10 minutes on this extraordinary site could save a life. Literally. What are you waiting for?

Tell a Joke:

We all enjoy a good laugh. Tell someone a joke make hopefully it will make them laugh:-)

Live Your Life:

Find your mission and live it. Like to paint? Paint.Like to write? Write. Do what makes you happy.  Unleash the purpose-driven-you.

Now is the perfect opportunity to change the world. The question is,

Will you..?
