Deal with Stigma Face to Face
Making a difference in America can be summed up as as simply as being a part of making a change for the better. Positive change is not always easy, especially considering the intense obstacles we have in the form of COVID-19 and living in a divided country. The good new is though, you can be a part of making a difference in your community regardless of how large or small it is. One of the ways this can be implemented is by being aware of the triggers we are all experiencing and therefore having empathy for others. This includes those over the age of 50 as well as New York City, both of which are stigmatized.
Being a Role Model
Leadership does not have to mean you head up a big organization, leadership can also mean that the way you are living your life can be a positive example for others. The challenge is by being the reason someone else smiles. Try to maintain a realistic view of the world while simultaneously seeing the ways you can make a difference.
You can put your skills to work for others, bring joy to the United States, be a volunteer or mentor for someone or a community that needs it, say kind words to someone who is struggline and so on. The truth is you have some unique gift that others can benefit from. Think carefully aboutyour life and who you are and you will figure out a method by which you can make an impact. Although taking action o this revelation is always best, just thinking along these lines can have a positive difference with those you are close to.
The big questions in making a difference can be the seeking out solutions for problems and questions that exist in the present. How can we as a country help to make poverty to go away and the hunger with it? Is there a way we can make entergy cleaner without the stigma of a disruption and fear of some about losing their jobs? What part can you play in protecting wildlife and environments of natural beauty.
Embrace Becoming a Part of the Solution
We are proud to say an behalf of those developing it as well as participating volunteers that the next Make a Difference Day will occurr on Saturday, October 23rd. Although that is months away, it is never too early to embrace becoming a part of the solution.
So, consider doing an act of kindness that is unexpected or being a volunteer in your community. Those who are cynical do not understand why there are folks who are seeking to make a positive change, they think that “do good-ers” are out of their minds. “What a waste of energy” some think. But the truth is that when you are part of bringing hope and understanding to our country which is greatly needed, what you get in return internally for having a big heart, can make a great difference in your life as a human being.
