Do you sometimes get's the feeling that you want to change the world and help everyone but then it fades away! Why it fades?

Even when you want to change your life style it only last for a day or two then it goes. i wonder why! please don't tell me it's a sugar rush!

I understand how you feel. Drastic change doesn't happen in a matter of days. Try doing things gradually. And KEEP TRYING. The Bible says, "Keep on asking, and it will be given YOU; keep on seeking, and YOU will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to YOU. For everyone asking receives, and everyone seeking finds, and to everyone knocking it will be opened."(Matthew 7:7,8) so keep asking God if you want to change your ways, according to His will!

Hope I helped!

You did :) and i would like to give a smillier meaning from the holy Quran where God says: Ask me and i will give u. And he says: Do what you need to do for i will be seeing your work and the believers will too. I really love the Bible quotes cause i always link it to the holy quran and oh my God it's the same meaning :) we are not so different huh :) Thank you 4 your answer

Usually reality kicks in. It would be nice to help everybody out and change the world, but one person with a small voice with no superpowers or mind control has little impact, time would be another factor. As for changing yourself...the feeling usually stays if you REALLY want to change.

If we don't act on our passions, they get shoved aside by our routines in life. Sure, I'd like to work in a homeless shelter on my days off....but when it's time, I have laundry to do , groceries to get, lessons to plan, errands to run, the list goes on and on. If you truly want to do something, you have to make a conscious effort to add it to your routine. It will be hard at first!

I call it hormones.You can be happy and excited one minute about how you can do anything, then a bit later you just sit and watch tv.lol... Been there done that, All intentions are good but the mind is not always willing., Don't give up tho..I think my Maker is seeing how persistent I can be in making the best of my life.
The secret is when the urge hits you..go for it right away.Don't sit down and say "Later'....You can always help the poor by donating a canned good to your local food pantry..not too much effort can go a long way.. God bless...

Hey, Tony, I used to be "just_saying". Aren't you the one that told me to listen to the dirty Santa song? Lol, I mean you recommended it to everyone! I remember watching that in my empty classroom feeling weird - crayon drawings and alphabet charts on the walls and on my Smart Board? A "mature" Christmas song!!

I think it's because we finally get to the point when we want to start, and have no idea what to do or how to begin. Time is a very important factor too, I have had multiple times in my life where I wake up and say: I'm going to change the world today! But then I will get up, get dressed, do my hair, go to school, come home, do my homework, practice my cello for an hour or so, and then think: wow, if this is just m normal life, how would my life be if I were to try to change the world on top of all THIS? I honestly wish I could change the world, but I'm definitely not saying it's impossible and I'm still trying to change the world in small ways, whether it be picking up a gum wrapper off the road or spending a week helping out at a homeless shelter. You can change the world so keep doing it in small ways and get other people to do their part. Who knows? Maybe if you create a chain of people wanting to help each other and the world, everything will change for the better. Keep going and don't quit.

This is a great way to put it :) maybe our path will cross as we are changing the world, who knows ;)

It definitely isn't impossible. My main goal in life is to become a famous enough actress (I am actually very good and a lot of people think I have a pretty good chance) that if I try to change the world maybe other people will take notice and help. It would be really awesome if we did meet, although I doubt we would realise who each other are.

Life gets in the way. Some times the life style we have isn't by choice but circumstances. For instance: Yesterday I wanted to change my life, buy a jet plane and travel the world. Today I woke up... It's not going to happen.

It's really good that you want to help others. It's also good that you want to help others and make adjustments in your life. At Matthew 5:3 it says, “Happy are those conscious of their spiritual need.” If you want to help others continue to pray about it. One of the identifying marks of God's people is the love they have for each other (John 13:35). Keep working at!

In holy Quran God says: God doesn't change what's going with people until they change them selves. Yes God can chage it all but what's the point of our existance then :)

Maybe its not so much that it fades but is taken away & handed to someone else.

That's when you redeem your rights like for example in brave heart movie. Freedom been taken away from them and by hard work and great sacrfises they got their freedom back. If you agreed and remain still while other takes what belongs to us we will be helping them to distroy us, we can't complain about it by then. :)
Have faith. Since yesterday i planned to change myself to be ahappy person who smiles and laugh more. Whos knows who will get efficated by me and maybeone day everyone will be hapy and relaxed therefore no wars, no tears ;) it's one way to look at it huh ;)
