The Power of One! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Can one person really make a difference?

Can an individual change the world by doing good? We hear the wonderful words of inspiration from some of the leading thinkers of our time. Many believe they can lift mountains if they put their minds to it. It is not rocket science to think that one person can change the world if that person applies him or herself to the task ahead.

Making a difference is about creating changes that will benefit others. There will be challenges but one should hold a firm course and not be distracted. Mahatma Gandhi has said that we must be the change that we want to see. The anthropologist Margaret Mead has stated that, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful and committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”    

 Leo Tolstoy says, “Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” In other words change has to come from within and that it starts with the individual.  Dr. Martin Luther King makes the point that we must stay vigilant and have the courage to face the challenge of change. He also believes in the power of the written word. King says, ‘ If you want to change the world pick up your pen and write.’
