9.) Develop your communication and relational skills. One is too small a number to achieve greatness. The best leaders are those who are able to make impact with the help of their team. Network with like-minded people not only in real life but even online: on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc.
10.) Be creative and resourceful. Some of your ideas and actions may not work well but they can probably be tweaked some more to be recycled. Make the most of your time and current situation to produce something wonderful. I wrote the draft of this article using my touch-screen cell phone on my way to work.
11.) Build your platform. Whether that’s writing, photography, art or whatever, you need somewhere to keep your masterpieces collected and showcased to the world. Keep a record of your ideas. Your cell phones can be used too! Autograph your work with excellence. Don’t settle for anything less than the best output. Copyright your work or find ways to ensure people knows it’s your idea. There’s a lot of copying and stealing going on today online, in real life, and even for TV show concepts.
12.) Live well, long and healthy. Do good to feel good. Do not be overcome by evil. Many thought leaders and news-makers who started strong and well with good intentions who eventually got corrupted or killed for their greed, lust, need for more power or illness caused by poor health-related lifestyle choices. To leave a great legacy, live well, long and healthy.
Believe in yourself and dare to dream. You will not become believable if you don’t believe in yourself first. Becoming a world changer is obviously a gargantuan task. And no better place to start than with yourself.
Mahatma Gandhi said: “Be the change you want to see in the world” and Mariah Carey sang: “…And the hero lies in you.” 🙂
