    You can be honest. Don’t worry. You won’t be alone. Much like Conor felt at the beginning of his journey, we all feel inadequate in some way and sometimes that keeps us from stepping out. So answer away! I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because . . .

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because the world is too great for me; too big and vast and largely populated. I feel too small in comparison to the thousands of people out there that need me help. What can one, barely an adult, girl do to help change the lives of those around her?

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because I can’t commit fully to any one humanitarian cause. There are so many people in need, and so many organizations to help, but it doesn’t feel like I have made a real change by donating a few dollars here and there to any one in particular. But I know sometimes all it takes is a small action for God to use a person for his purpose. (Matthew 10:42; 25:40)…now to start believing that!

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because my own life demands so much time.

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because I feel like I’m unprepared. I’m so small the problems of the world seem neverending and I don’t know how to fix them. I don’t know how I, a student in college, could make such a large difference to any group of people.

    Wow. You guys are awesome. Thank you so much for opening up. It’s actually inspiring to hear others talk about their insecurities and to find out you’re not alone! I constantly need reminders that one person can make a big difference. That’s what this book did for me.

    You’re all in the running for the book. Keep the conversation going! We’ll be putting everyone’s name that posts in a drawing and will announce the winners later tonight.

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because there are so many other people more talented and more intelligent than me. I just think – well I’ll let them do it. Why should I be the one to do it in my community when somebody else could do it better? I realize the flaw in that thinking. It’s important that I remember how important it is to just step up and be the change. I have the ability to make an impact on somebody’s life today. I have the ability to make my town better today. I just have to start.

    Thanks for posting this. I look forward to reading the book!

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because I lack the resources many others have. I need to consistently remember that it is not money that will change people, but love.

    I let my fears get in the way of my desire to help others. I begin questioning whether I’m “cut out” for the job and compare myself to the successful people who have already accomplished so much. Prayer helps a lot with these insecurities.

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because I’m not enough: not smart enough, not charismatic enough, not together enough, not skilled enough, not connected enough…

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in the world because… I can. I’m the only person holding me back, and I let insignificant matters get in my way. Wanting to change the world is something I’ve always talked about, and despite my love for them, words have never meant much to me in this way. I hear inspiring speeches and get all pumped up to take action and then… I don’t. I allow myself to get wrapped up in being too busy, too tired, too poor, too insecure, too whatever to truly make a difference. I know that God has shaped me perfectly to help other people, but I fail to act when I can. I’ve been working to change that, and I refuse to give up on my goal. Justin Bieber said it well with his catchy pop song: “Never Say Never.”

    . . . . suffering is too deeply engrained in our human experience. The selfishness that leads to exploitation and oppressive, violence and manipulation has become infused into our human consciousness.

    I feel like I can’t make a difference in de world because I struggle so much with de sin in my own life. It often times seems frivolous to attempt to help others when my life is such a mess. De last thing anyone needs to see is someone claiming to help in de name of Christ, only to discover that dat person follows very little of what they claim to believe.

    Thanks for de story, guys … a magnificent call to action.

    Your Friend,
