Small Acts, Without 50% + 1 DO Change the World

By Rob Kall

it is not always numbers that make change happen, but real people, real faces, real hearts. t does not always take 50% plus one. Sometimes it takes a handful of dedicated, persevering, passionate, tenacious people to fight to make something happen. Sometimes small acts make huge things happen.

Marcello Rollando writes, in his article, The Strength of Butterflies is in Their Wings,  how it is not always numbers that make change happen, but real people, real faces, real hearts.

It does not always take 50% plus one. Sometimes it takes a handful of dedicated, persevering, passionate, tenacious people to fight to make something happen. 

Sometimes small acts make huge things happen. 

Believe in that and believe that YOU may be the one who sets a sea-change in history in motion. 

Embrace your cause, or causes, and do something. Do something every day. Do something because you never know whether the something that YOU do could be the straw that breaks the camel's back, the action that shifts the power and becomes the tipping point. 

It may take a million or ten million people to try, to believe, to embrace their beliefs and to act, before that one simple action happens at the right time and place to make a difference. 

What if it could be you? What if it's today?


Submitters Bio:

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
