The “Change the world” slogan is so much spread on the internet, that it is time to finally say something against this mainstream!
Please, do not change the world!
Why? Because I like it!
Why change the world, when it changes by itself, moment after moment? Things constantly appear and disappear. Any other moment is not equal to the current moment, so why put additional effort to do what already happens by itself?
Do you want to change something? Do you want to make an impact on the world? Do not change things – change yourself. When you change yourself you will start radiating positive change around you. And suddenly, the world around you will change.
Everyone around is stupid? Try to learn. Some others will learn from you.
Everyone around is angry? Try to show more love and compassion. Some others will be grateful.
Everyone around is boring? Try to be more entertaining. You will reveal what other people are capable of.
Everyone around is poor? Try to work more. Some others will work with you.
Everyone around is lazy? Try to be active. Some others will get inspiration from you.
Just some others, not everyone in the world, be realistic.
Want peace in the world? Then first become peaceful in your head first!
Want to teach others? Learn first!
Want to help others? Acquire some skills!
Your change can be not about your ego, it can be for the sake of others, for the sake of the world.
Do not comfort what others say – do not change things in the world!
Everyone is changing the world? Try to keep it constant. It’s a valuable activity to keep things as they used to be. It’s called protecting. Protect your health, protect your relatives, protect the world from global warming, waste or chaos.
That’s where balance in this world comes from.
But don’t forget, you are already changing the world even if you don’t want to. Even if you are sitting at home all the time, someone is calculating your payable taxes. Some others would live in your home. Some others would breathe the air you breathe or eat food you eat. You are influencing the world without knowing about it, so, let’s do this consciously and meaningfully – by changing yourself.
Sometimes going against the mainstream is not obvious. Mainstream ideas are often communicated as a revolution. Do whatever you want, no matter how boring it is – maybe this is your revolution?
The biggest revolution in the history of music (in my personal biased opinion) was when Kraftwerk popularized synthetic music with repetitive loop beats. When everyone was playing ROCK, behaving like wild animals, Kraftwerk guys were neat and tidy, did not drink alcohol and exercised with their bicycles.
After them, pop music began to dominate. The biggest revolution led to the mainstreamest mainstream.
