Nobody Cares?

Famous last words:

“Nobody cares about the truth nowadays.”

“Nobody cares about original ideas anymore.”

“Nobody cares about the arts these days.”

“Nobody cares about doing things for others anymore.”

“Nobody cares about hard work anymore.”

“Nobody cares about X (insert whatever you want for X) anymore.”

Maybe. Here’s an alternative possibility:

Maybe people do care.

Maybe what they don’t care about are your attempts to change them.

Maybe the ineffectiveness of your approach isn’t evidence for a hopeless world.

Maybe you’re getting valuable feedback from people that lets you know you still have a lot of work to do if you want to be a person of influence.

Maybe you won’t see the changes you want to see until you change your methods for creating change.
