One person can make a change by planting a seed, that one person can be you. One small difference can grow and trigger other changes, and it will change the world. When you first start a project, you may feel like you’re alone in it, but if you believe in what you’re doing and believe that it is right, you will succeed. Do not feel like you’re alone, do not feel like you cannot achieve, have faith in your beliefs, your projects, and in yourself.
In this video, the man sees the people who are in need, and he helps them. No matter how little, simple, or insignificant the help he can offer may be, he still does it anyway. Not only does he help other people, but animals and even plants too. He does it even though he knows he won’t gain anything. He knows he won’t get any richer; he does it to see others smile. He does it because he knows that small things have the tendency to grow; small differences end up to be changes in the world, vague smiles turn into tears of happiness.
Last year, the SLO of ISC-Cairo managed to make a difference by saving 2 lives. We organized a marathon to collect money to save at least one person’s heart (aim at the beginning. We all knew how difficult it was to collect that much money, we were afraid we would not be able to do it. But everyone joined in, everyone was enthusiastic about it, we all strengthened each other’s faith in ourselves, in our unity. Together, not only were we able to collect the money we needed to save one heart, but two hearts. Not only was it a successful project, but it is now a tradition that we will do every year.
Another example of the SLO’s achievements is the trip they organized to Aswan, where the students visited Aswan to paint a woman’s house, turning it into her dream home. The smile it bought to her face was worth the hard efforts the prefects have put. The students were able to spread happiness throughout the entire village. These things may be simple tasks for us, but it strongly affects other people, it means a lot to some people. Why not do these things for them?
A small act can change a person’s life. It’s not what you want, it’s what you need. It’s not having the idea; it’s taking the first step. It’s not luck; it’s having faith and believing in yourself. Take the initiative to at least start to make a difference; after all, a journey of a thousand miles starts with a simple step. Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing will change, take the first step. To truly find out how far you can go, you must risk going too far.
To give and forgive
We choose our own destiny, to be heroes or not
We have the ability to achieve anything if we have the will
