92 - Make a difference in the world . . . and your life!

Reason for this Goal:  Make a difference.  One of the greatest philosophies is to “leave the world a better place than when you arrived.”   It's true that people who find ways to improve other people's life feel more satisfaction in their own life.  During your epitaph, wouldn’t it be fitting for people to acknowledge that you did something good that made a positive difference in this world.  

The world is a small or big place, depending upon how you view it, due to globalization and how interconnected we all are. It is easier than ever to make a difference in this world on a large scale and have a massive impact.  

Ways to make a difference . . . 

Below are some things that you could do that would make an impact on this world.

  • Work for a company that sells products internationally, which have a real impact
  • Support an environmental cause that has far-reaching impact
  • Develop a new product or service that is more environmentally friendly, has global impact with the potential to change people lives
  • Volunteer in a 3rd world country and help build a house or bring water to a community that didn’t exist before
  • Sponsor a child in a country that offers sponsorship that helps them with some life essentials
  • Write a book that has a positive message and provides inspiration to others

Suggested Goal(s):    Determine what it is that you will do, by which you will leave the world a better place for having lived . . . and then do it.
Your Outrageous Goal:    Do something globally that has the potential to impact millions of people around the world.    

I work for a global company that seeks to create a safer world by selling technology that helps find missing people, protects law enforcement and civilians, and deters illegal border crossings and terrorism, while protecting our troops abroad.    

At the time of writing this book, I’ve been reading a book called, Abundance . . . The Future is Better Than You Think.   The authors are encouraging people to get involved in projects that have the potential to impact millions (and billions) of people around the world through advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, nanomaterials, synthetic biology, and other exponentially growing technologies.  Reading this book may change your view on our future world.   

In writing and promoting the 100 Goals Club, it is my hope that I will inspire you to write down your goals and live a more fulfilling life so that you will achieve goals that you wouldn’t have otherwise achieved.

Find a cause or mission that has far- reaching impacts on our world and our planet.
