Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today, as the world honors the life and works of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the concept of belief and how it can change your life and others lives.
From the day we are born, our environment shapes our thoughts, habits and even beliefs. According to Merriam-Webster, beliefs are a state or habit of mind in which trust or confidence is placed in some person or thing. These become the driving forces behind many of your actions and choices in life. And history has shown just how powerful our beliefs can become and how they can affect the world beyond.
How a Simple Belief Can Change the World
For example, here are some convictiosn that dramatically changed the world as we know it - for good and bad.
- Columbus' belief in a new world caused a massive European migration.
- Hitler's belief in a Utopia caused millions of deaths and much destruction throughout Europe.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.'s belief in the civil rights movement led to the Civil Rights Act of 1968.
- 9/11 was the result of a belief that there is only one "true" religion over others.
Each of these events had a huge impact that rocked and shaped the foundation of the people in the past, and still resonate today. While you live your day to day life, you cause change that affects your future and that of your family and loved ones all based on your choices and beliefs.
Be Your Own Catalyst For Positive Change
