“The world has a way of not only stepping aside for men or women who know where they are going, but it often joins and helps them with their objective.” – Zig Ziglar

There are many examples of the above in history; of people who thought to themselves that they wouldn’t sit and wait for the world to be ready for what they had to offer. Instead, they stood up, took a deep breath – and went for it. Whatever it was they were doing, the rest of the world could either sit back and watch or join in!

These people are sometimes called ‘trailblazers’, as they forge ahead, showing the route for others to follow. From global leaders like Nelson Mandela, to individuals like Rosa Parks or Greta Thunberg, to industry influencers like Steve Jobs, to humanitarians like the Dalai Lama, to people on television influencing audiences of millions like Sir David Attenborough. 

If they can, why not you?

Your idea to improve life for all doesn’t have to be an original one either; you might be inspired by the actions of someone else and then inspire others around you to join in. This is how civic movements gain momentum, Let’s Do It, World! or Fridays For Future, for example. It’s also how we help spread positivity and optimism……

……through leading by example, being role models, setting standards for our children to follow, or simply being responsible citizens by doing relatively simple things; looking out for our family, friends and neighbours in times of need, such as during a global pandemic!

Taking that a step further, helping strangers, the homeless, the sick and vulnerable, the less well-off are other examples of “objectives” wherein you can act and inspire others to join you.

It only takes 3.5% of a population to create a singularity point, whereby an initiative will gain sufficient momentum to become self-sustaining. Depending on where you live, that’s either only a relatively small number of people, or it could be many – either way, it always starts with personal decisions to either be the catalyst or to spread the light from your flame.

What’s happening around you that either inspires you to act and kickstart a wave of people to join you, or is already happening that you can join and lend your support to? Do it, today!

Love and light,

      I am glad you’re loving it! To answer your question, the whole thing was done from the bottom up in-house by our team, using WP as the base but doing all the design, layout and concept ourselves. Hope that helps. /jim
