8 Signs You're Meant To Change The World Even If You Don’t Think So
“I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that, and something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I'll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won't forget
I was here...
I lived, I loved
I was here...
I did, I've done, everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here...
I want to say I lived each day until I died
I know that I had something in, somebody's life
The hearts I have touched will be the proof that I leave
That I made a difference, and this world will see”
Sometimes you may feel like there's nothing to live for or to hold on to! Sometimes you wonder, why you're even here, what purpose is there for you in this life.
Well, you're here to leave the world a better place and to leave the people you meet a little happier. You’re here to fulfill your dreams and reach your potential. You’re here to make a difference.
Here are some signs that you're meant to make a difference and change the world:
#1. You always reflect what you want to see in this world.
“If you want to change the world, start with yourself.” - Mahatma Gandhi
You act kind because you want to see the world full of kindness. You don't judge because you want to see a world with no judgments.
You don't think of changing the world, you’re rather focused on changing yourself with the belief that and everything else will follow. You're not a drop in this universe, you're the universe in a drop. Only when you change yourself that you can change your life and others' life as well. If you want to see more kindness in this world, then start with yourself, show more kindness and compassion.
#2. You’re constantly growing as a person.
Each one of us has the potential to achieve his dreams and become successful in his calling. This potential is only reached through continuous growth. And you have a deep understanding of the importance of personal growth and you devote a considerable amount of time and effort day in and day out to grow. You learn from your mistakes and everyday experiences. You devote time to read books in your field and acquire new skills that will improve your life.
#3. You take full responsibility for everything in your life.
You take your life in your own hands, and what happens? A terrible thing, no one to blame. – Erica Jong
You don't see yourself as a victim of your circumstances, and you don’t blame anyone for anything that happens in your life. You take responsibility for your happiness.
Whatever the circumstances are, you always choose to see the positive, learn the lesson and make the necessary changes to create the results you want.
#4. You love others and are willing to show it.
“Your success is directly proportional to the number of lives you have touched for the better.”― Vishwas Chavan
You strongly believe that love can heal and make the world a better place. Therefore, you're always willing to love and lend a helping hand. You realize that if you’re going to make a difference in this world, you’ll need to start by making a difference in others’ days, even in the smallest ways.

You never let fear stop you from doing what needs to be done. You’re always willing to take action and stand still in front of adversity. You acknowledge that the journey is full of setbacks and disappointments, but you strongly believe that you can handle whatever life will throw in your face.
#6. Traditional jobs aren’t for you.
Deep down, you know you were born a leader. You feel stuck when working for others, and in general, you feel that traditional jobs aren’t for you. You desperately want to be free to do what you love to do and you thrive when you do it.
#7. You're Different.
You realize that you need to be different in order to make a difference, so you’re willing to go against the current and stand out from the crowd. You embrace whatever makes you different and make the most out of it. You’re not trying to fit in society and you live on your own expectations. In other words, you think for yourself. You don’t let others think for you.
#8. You’re relentlessly persistent.
You get up every time you get knocked down. You view failure as a stepping stone towards your dreams. You never let a setback discourage you from achieving your goals. No matter what happens, you persist until you succeed.
We all will die. Your goal isn't to live forever, but to leave something that will. Your goal is to find your purpose and fulfill it so that you'll reach you’re highest potential and make a difference in this world.
