Read through this and find your place as a Stranger in people lives.
I was sipping my coffee when a stranger asked, “How can I make impact to the world when I’m just a clerk?”
“What kind of impact are we talking here?” I asked and she paused. Then she shrugged.
“What is world mean to you?” I changed the question to divide her attention into two areas – The best way to change the world and who she could do it as. She took moments before she replied…
I looked around and she mirrored me. She looked puzzle by my action. I moved my index finger around and said “In that case, this is the world” and I smiled. She looked around again.
“Let say ball represent transformation of love, good thoughts and good deeds. If you cannot pass a big ball to these people in one go, pass a small one. One ball to each person here. When they get the balls from you, they will remember you as a person who passes them a ball. They will remember you because it’s personal. That, in many ways is the most effective way to change the world. A person at one time” I explained.
“But I’m just a clerk. Would people listen to me?” She asked.
“What’s your working hour?”
“Nine to five” She replied short.
“Do you do filing after five?”
“So what are you after five?” I asked her. She paused again.
“When you want to do good deed, do it as YOU. Never do it as a Manager or a Politician or a Millionaire or a Clerk. When you do it in the name of the title, you earn nothing. After all, when you do it as a person who has titles, you are no longer a stranger” I told her softly.
“So being a stranger is important?” She asked.
I nodded. “Which one of these two people will make you feel uplift when they told you that you have shining hair? Your friend or a stranger?”
“Why?” I asked.
“Because if he mentions it, that means he really noticed my hair“ She said.
“Indeed! I called it Stranger’s Affect. The memorable simple transformation and uplift moments are always from strangers. Small but memorable”
Make a Different
Everyone and anyone can make different and change the world. As long we pass the love, good thoughts, good deeds and positive transformation, we are making different and change the world.
You can change the world and start small by helping people around you to transform. Small things affect the most because it’s personal. Make them realize that they are part of the beautiful world. No one is left behind. Everyone is here because it completes the beauty in the world. Say nicest things to the strangers you meet. Greet them with your happy tone. Love them as part of the beauty world.
Be the stranger and the affects to the world are greater. Most important thing is, strangers transform the world because they just want to share their good thoughts, loves and good deeds. Simply pure sharing and no recognition involves (which make the good thoughts, loves and good deeds circle faster)
So that’s how it goes. The best way to change the world is one person at the time. When you can’t do it as a family or a friend to everyone, do it as a stranger then.
Right before she left, she smiled and said…“…and today I found my stranger. Thank you”
