We all want to change the world. Yet many of us find it hard to convert our idealistic dreams into reality. Why is it so hard? What’s the biggest obstacle to people changing the world?
The answer, silly as it sounds, is actually nothing. We falsely believe that something needs to change for us to be in a position to make an impact. We think we need a million dollars, a position with a title, a team of front-end back-end and side-ways developers, twenty plus hours of free time per week, a discretionary budget, a hole-punched development proposal, or laminated business cards to start changing the world. Those beliefs, however, are wrong.
The “ifs” and “buts” we often believe we need to check off before we can start making a serious contribution to the world are fallacies. They are made up. We can, YOU can, make an impact now. This right here, is your invitation. Give back to the world without any excuses, and don't look back!
Ohrsom Student Australia is an organization aimed at enhancing the lives of young Jews of Australia. In a world where many university age students feel trapped on the surface of life, our mission is to teach the tools for diving deeper. We expand students' horizons with trips abroad to Israel and the United Sates and help them manifest those expansive experiences into real growth with weekly programming back in the hometowns. Judaism, when understood and practiced properly, is a lens that empower people to contribute to society and feel personally fulfilled. Our Belief System is simple: Learn it, Live it, and Love it.
