A lot of wise people will tell you that a single person can indeed make an impact. This is not some secret. But, coming from personal experience, I think that feeling that we as individuals can’t make a big impact by ourselves could be deeply seeded in a lot of people’s outlooks. Mine too. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot. It may not seem like it, but for humanity to change for the better, efforts need to be made at an individual level. That is how humanity will move forward. Only once we each contribute to the betterment of humanity on an individual level will be able to make larger impacts on the direction of our species, of our advancement and overall prosperity.
Now, I don’t mean to discredit larger scale initiatives in any way. These are incredibly vital in the betterment of humanity, I simply mean to imply that those larger scale initiatives wouldn’t be possible without multiple individuals cultivating their efforts into one. This is how pretty much every single organization is formed. It starts with a single idea, a single passion, a single person.
