The world itself is very...odd. It's like trying to trap water in a box. Not all of it will be enclosed and at some point it will get out and return to it original form. So what about this idea of changing the world, leaving a mark that makes people, parents, peers and evebn yourself worked up in a tizzy.
Part of it can be chalked up to Maslow's hiearchy of needs: http://ishawithaneye.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/maslows-hierarchy.jpg" />
As for changing the world, we all have it but it's the very thing that scares us all. Miriam Williamson put it in the best way possible. This is the reason why although everyone can change the world, they and even myself don't.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? .... Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. ... It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marginalizing (is that's even a word) is the way of many. Being scared to step on anyone's toes or to hurt anyone's feelings or that people willl speak or look at you in an ill-manner, is the very reason why the word mundane exists. M8undane does means being safe, it does, but in some cases it doesn't mean happiness. So whether you're a lawyer, or an artist there's only one piece of advice I can give:
"Lazy hands and loud mouths bering in no money, but diligence does. Happiness and make 40K a year like a million and lack of can make a million look like 40K. Money is a hollow root in the tree of life, and in winter rots faster than milk in the summer."
In essence, WORK HARD at what you want to do (as long as it's legal!) and one day you will be paid for it. Change the world in your way (by leaving a mark in whatever size you want), and don't put yourself to shelve everyone else's problems, unless you like that sort of thing.
