Ambitions for the Masses

I am sure you were inspired by President-elect Obama's historic victory and started to wonder if you could also be President one day in your country - well, at least I did:)

But if we are honest, we know deep in our hearts that such an ambition is way too farfetched to be of any use in motivating ourselves to be the best we can be.

We need something more realistic and pragmatic yet equally inspiring...

I found my answer in writing humanitarian blogs to change the world - you can find yours too if you look in the right direction:
  1. Humanitarian: Some noteworthy humanitarian undertakings include making a difference in the upcoming World Aids Day, alleviating the hunger of about one billion people, ending child pornography, fighting human trafficking and forced prostitution, and lifting the taboo on depression.
  2. Environmental: With unusual climate changes impacting the world, it's high time we do something about deforestation, car emissions and waste management.
"Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential."
Barack Obama, 44th U.S. President
