How can one person change the world

How can one person change the world?

I don't think that one person is capable of changing the world.
The one thing in the world that needs changing is the quality, direction of the mutual human interconnections.
Even today when we know that we evolved into a globally integrated and fully interdependent human system with unbreakable ties in between us, we still try to use, exploit these interconnections for selfish, egoistic reasons.
In order to survive we would need to change the quality, intention in those interconnections to make them selfless, altruistic, mutually complementing.
But since such intention is against our inherent nature, we need a unique education program, starting it in small, closed, mutual “human laboratories”, then increase those circles, spreading the positive example like a “positive virus” in an otherwise declining civilization.

Staying with space examples for the moment, in recent years one man, Elon Musk, has completely rejuvenated worldwide interest in getting to Mars.
Of course, after he made the decision to commit to that vision, thousands of other people have been buying into it, in small ways or big ways, making it possible for plans to be laid and pursued.
Nevertheless, without Elon Musk as the initiating influence, it’s unlikely anyone else would have garnered the same interest and support.
What we don’t know is whether someone else convinced him it was a good idea.
We wouldn’t have had people landing on the moon in 1969 if John F.
Kennedy had not set that as a goal for the whole nation in 1961.
But before that it was then Vice-president Lyndon B.
Johnson who convinced Kennedy this was the goal they needed to capture the nation’s imagination: nothing less.
Even then, they both had to keep selling the project hard over the next 4 years (Kennedy dying in the meantime) before it finally achieved a momentum of its own.
So we have Johnson to thank, along with the thousands like Kennedy who then helped make the vision come true, that it happened when it did.
Virtually every human artifact you see in front of you started out as an idea in one mind.
The fact that it looks and functions the way it does today will be the result of many different inputs that also started out as ideas in many other minds, modifying the original conception.
And many of those people may have made a greater contribution to turning the idea into a reality than its originator.
Nevertheless, without the original idea it is almost certain the thing you see before you would have turned out differently and at a later date, if at all.
And the same for all the modifying inputs.
Every single input represents one person changing the world a little or a lot.
The reason that more positive change is not occurring in the world right now is because people don’t realize how much power they can wield to do good.
All you have to do is see for yourself what is needed in the world around you and then try to help make it happen.
It matters not whether you originate a new idea or simply make a difference to what’salready happening through your own contribution, small or great.
You are still one person having some impact.
Keep on trying to bring about what you see is needed in whatever way seems practical and you will end up changing the world too.
If you think that sounds like a good idea, here’s another Quora answer of mine that gives more detail on how to go about it and stick with it:
Gus Griffin's answer to What are some things you realize as you get older?

By the way, this will transform you too in the process.
The longer you persist in implementing what you see is needed, the higher your self-esteem will climb.

Okay.
I'm gonna assume you mean big change, because… right there! That blink! Your eyes shut for a fraction of a second, and the world was forever altered.
It will never be the same.
You want to be remembered.
Is that it? Like, by everyone.
Okay.
I can work with that.
Now, my young Jedi, you have a path with two forks ahead of you.
Both are difficult.
First path: you are remembered because people can't forget, no matter how much they may wish to.
Like Hitler.
Second path: you are remembered because people don't want to forget.
Like Mother Theresa.
Hitler is easier.
I'm sure you can figure out that yourself.
Mother theresa is who I strive to be, and she is who I'll assume you wish to emulate.
Good luck!

See the common misconception is that one person can accomplish almost nothing yet that is merely in my belief an excuse to do nothing.
Lets take a situation where someone is being bullied as an example.
If even one person stands up to the bully rather than being a bystander and watching the victim get bullied the bully is quite likely to be unsure as to what to do next.
He may even back down.
And if that one person stands up it become much more likely that even more people will stand up.
So really even if its only one person anyone can make a difference.
For example I kick-started “Books for Hope,” a campaign for greater literacy in my community; this decision resulted after I learned that more than a quarter of kids in my state (Alabama) live in poverty.
These kids have extremely limited access to the books and literacy skills they need to do well in school and beyond.
In fact, nearly fifteen percent of Alabamians are illiterate, and this has unfortunately contributed to the increasing levels of crime, drug abuse, and other social problems within the youth community.
Over the course of the last few months, Books for Hope has donated over 3,000 gently-used children's books to three underfunded libraries and four family shelters in the Birmingham area.
I have also distributed roughly 1,200 handmade story cards to kids, encouraging then to read for fun.

Being from a technical background looking at the people now and back then who changed the world are not actually always alone, they worked with their colleague or can say team.
Few of them I can mention here –
Individuals –
There are more examples of people(s) who have changed the world through their thoughts and inventions but it wasn't always just one person’s contribution towards.
So when you have an idea that you think it can change the world, you can't say it doesn't need contributions to achieve the reality.
Thanks.

One with God is a majority.
It is not the person that changes the world, it is the Light of God in the person that changes the world.
That is exactly what Jesus Christ demonstrated and that is what he wanted each of us to prove.
Jesus never took credit for the things that he did, but said that it was the Father working through him that performed the feats attributed to Jesus.
It is a simple fact that we are holographic in nature.
Luke 17:21 “…the kingdom of God is within you”.
Every point of a hologram contains the whole hologram.
If you change any point of a hologram, you change the whole hologram.
By changing ourselves, we change the hologram of the world.
And, so, by one person becoming the Christ, the bearer of the Light of Christ, that one person has a more powerful influence in the world than all of the other people in the world who are bearing very little light in their auras.
If you would like to learn how to increase your light and become that Christ, then study the Teachings of the Ascended Masters here: How can one person be the change the world needs
