Recently, Liz Strauss of the Successful-Blog posted “I Want to Make a Difference, Too”, a guest post from Jesse Petersen of Gitr’s WoW Blog. In it, he debates within himself and asks others how he can make a difference in the world around him.
I want to make a difference.
That sentence is a paragraph in and of itself, and deserving of a second appearance. It speaks volumes about a central yearning of the heart. Is it selfish to want to make a difference? I am not saying that I want to become rich, or famous, or busy. I am just a 28 year old guy with cystic fibrosis, a wife, a very nice apartment in a very nice development, with a wonderful family and a supportive church family who wants to make a difference.
Is it hopeless to think that I possess something that other people would want?
…Is it just a Holy Grail, never to be found? When I find it, will it make a difference in me?
The response was amazing, with people suggesting how to find his passion and generally very supportive and understanding.
Many people start out wanting to make a difference in their world and the world around them with their blogs. Are you one of them? Did it work?
