Simple acts that go a long way

There is no stipulated way in which you can change somebody’s life. Even the smallest acts can change somebody’s life in a great way. Below I have written some great ways which you can use to positively change somebody’s life.

How to Change Someone’s Life for the Better

1. Share the love

2. Care for somebody

There are a million ways to show somebody that you care, from giving them a smile, to, asking about their day. It shows them that they are visible, appreciated, and interesting. People can do great things when they know that at least one person cares. It can give them hope and strength to face the future, and inspire them toward a better life.

3. Provide a need

When you provide a need, you can make a big difference. It doesn’t matter if it is a physical need, an emotional need, or a social need. Some people really need a sincere, authentic compliment. Others need a meal or a cup of coffee. Find a way to meet somebody’s needs, and you may just change a life.

4. Believe in their dreams

You will be surprised at how many people just need someone even one person to believe in their dreams. As humans, we all suffer from moments of thinking that we are not good enough and that our big dreams don’t make sense. Give someone a little faith. Let them know that they are worth it. They will begin to believe that their dreams can come true, and this can really be a key to changing someone’s life. While you are at it, have more faith in your own life than you are ever expected to have. It can be contagious and affect others.

5. Share your strength

We all have strengths that we can share. They may be natural abilities that we were born with or hard-won strengths that have come only through hard work and experience. Either way, your strengths are unique to you. Chances are, there are many people out there who could benefit from them. The important thing is to use your strengths to lift someone up, not make them feel bad because of their lack of those strengths.

You can also leverage your strength on behalf of someone else. For example, if you might help young people fill out college applications or fundraise for someone in need. Think outside the box, when it comes to using your strengths to help others.

Donate towards something you believe is for a worthy cause. 

Whether you donate money or time, giving back is beneficial. Besides the uplift in mood that comes with giving back, you are also positively affecting your body in other ways. Are you leaving a lasting impact on others? It only takes one person to change a life, it may as well be you!

6. Be a dedicated mentor

Take someone under your wing and show them the ropes. Give the kind of advice that they won’t hear anywhere else.

7. Be real and demonstrate loyalty when someone’s chips are down and no one else has their back

8. Be an inspiration

Set high expectations and push people beyond their capabilities. Show confidence in them when they’re having a weak moment. Drop some encouragement to someone who needs it.

9. Show some kindness

You never know what somebody may be going through or dealing with.

Think of your greatest accomplishments. Where would change somebody’s life rank on your list? If somebody’s life becomes better after they have crossed paths with you, you made a difference! Change someone’s life and you may end up changing yours.

You don’t need to be a millionaire to start changing lives. Neither do you need to have all the time in the world before you can do so. You can touch people’s lives even the way you are.

10. Offer an unexpected compliment

Every day the people around you do good things. Most of those people don’t work with or for you; in fact, most of them have no relationship with you, whether professional or personal. Compliment one of them for something for which it’s least expected.

Send a note to a doctor who helped you through a rough time or to a college professor who made you see the world in a different way. Send a note to someone who did something thoughtful, not because it was expected but simply because they could. Expected compliments feel good. Unexpected compliments make a huge and lasting impact.
