I can’t stress how important it is to have positive mentors that we can look up to throughout life. Even though it can sometimes feel like one person can’t make a difference, the truth is, one person is all it takes to make a difference.
As Mahatma Gandhi said, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
It’s actually quite amazing how one person can inspire countless others to make a stand, to fight (or peacefully protest) for what they believe is right, to walk on the moon, to take flight, to declare independence.
There have been so many influential leaders, thinkers, innovators and creators, who have achieved incredible success (often despite great setbacks), who’ve changed society in the process.
When we hold great people in our head and hearts, we can more fully realize the powerful impact that remembering their words and following through on their actions, can have.
