Challenges are a plethora, when the word change is spoken. People generally approach change with a lot of ‘what ifs’, and it is even more difficult when the change is instigated by a young woman. Your motives will be questioned and your intentions will be cast in doubt. The most frustrating thing is that it never gets easier even with time, especially when no one else seems to be of the same opinion.
A major challenge that always sends me many miles back is that of funding, getting people to invest in charity is one very difficult task. It is sometimes easier to convince a person to invest in the stock exchange when the market is in a down trail trend than to convince someone to invest in charity. The reason is simple; the former may promise some tangible returns while the latter not so much. People fail to get the big picture, the one about giving the less fortunate a helping hand, a chance, an opportunity! Instead they will extend sympathies and imagine a mountain will shift.
However I have discovered that the only way out is in fact to hang in there, to keep talking and preaching the plight of others because in the end someone is bound to listen and find the course worth his or her investment. The investment may not be money backed, it can be advice, a bigger network, or even just time and these are all things that I as a front runner can still use to help others in need find the necessary assistance to be able to live a better life.
I have also learned that believing in your course is also very important; do not champion a change you know nothing about or do not believe in. Because sometimes all it takes to rally others is the passion and endurance you demonstrate in your course for change and others find the necessary inspiration in you in order to change.
The resource exchange is one aspect of Pulse Wire that I intend to utilize to the fullest. The best thing so far, is that on Pulse Wire, there are already people who care about change and people who are ready and willing to extend a hand to bring the required change. This platform gives me a lot of impetus to stay on and fight. My fellow country citizens like Rhonda and Lindy are making a difference in the community thanks to Pulse Wire. These women have been able to rally fellow women into bringing change that will be talked about for many years to come and I intend to follow in their footsteps and I believe, in the end, I will see the change that I so desire.
