How To Change Lives

You want to change lives and make a positive impact. But where do you start?

Don’t make things more complicated than they need to be — this formula can help:

Ideas+Action+Passion = Lives Changed.

Let’s dig deeper with each component.

1. Ideas are a thought or suggestion for a possible course of action. It’s been said the majority of the general public thinks they have at least one book in them. But how many actually take the time to write it?

Ideas are great, but they are useless without action and passion.

2. Action requires some form of movement and this often leads to some form of discomfort. A commitment is also required; when you invest your time, there is an opportunity cost. Action is vastly underrated.Talking excessively about action does not accomplish a thing.

Action is what separates the dreamers from the doers.

3. Passion is what gets you excited and fired up. It pushes you forward and lets you achieve great things. Passion is the essence of life. Without passion, you are not really alive but rather going through the motions.

Passion is needed to change the status quo and create lasting art.

When ideas, action and passion combine, magic happens. Lives are changed. It’s easy to have an idea or to be passionate about a certain subject, but to REALLY accomplish great things, you need all three.

Amazing things happen when ideas, action and passion come together.

I challenge you to put in the time, effort, and energy to change lives.
