When change happens faster than can be explained, it is often under-appreciated.
Can you imagine how much harder it was to create a movement fifty years ago? No email. No cell phones. No social networks. Just think about the leg work that went into gathering ten people to do anything, much less a thousand.
Today we have email, cell phones, and social networks.
What are you doing with them?
You could move mountains with them if you chose to.
You could shift cultures with them if you really wanted to.
Not easily. Maybe not on the first try. But with commitment, you absolutely can change the world with these tools.
You don’t have to, but you could.
Just remember that the next time you have the impulse to complain about the world. It’s ok to be sad, to be overwhelmed and discouraged. But at the end of the day, you have tools that no other era of humanity had to change the things that need changing.
The greatest trick the villain ever played on the hero is convincing them that their voice couldn’t be heard.
Use your voice.
Have a grateful day.
