Making a difference

in #life3 years ago (edited)

Can we really make a difference in someone's life? A simple hello or Or just giving a simple glass of water to a thirsty person. I know we can make a difference in a life because when I was on the street with nothing to eat and no shoes a person gave me food and it showed me someone still cared. I was so broken I lacked hope for just about anything. Day after day I would receive an act of kindness and these all lead to my life changing experience with God and I've been off the street now for 30 plus years and now I lead the largest kids outreach on vancouver island. It's so amazing what a gester of love can do. So come on Steemians lets send some love to those around us......

Thanks for sharing..‏

I’m glad to hear your inspirational story and I’m glad you overcame those obstacles. You are strong!

Seeing People like you, motivating others really makes my heart warm. Thank you for making this community amazing!

Hey Cliffpower, I have a question for you. How did you manage to get $300/post?
Does followers count matters? Possible for you to share a blogspot on how steemit works? I kind of like this place, but it seems to be flooded with bots or people who just want to comment for the sake of it?

Yes I will some day, however I'm new to steemit and still have a lot to learnt. I'm learning to use the bots and some of them didn't like this post because it was to short. I could not figure out what I was doing wrong. I believe slow and steady wins the race. Just have fun and post away. I'm still blown away this post went crazy/ Cheers

Thank you so much for your insights! I think I will do that as well. Just being transparent about myself and share to this platform! thanks buddy!!

Everyone has something special to give and remember your a Champaign

Hey Cliff, possible for you to be transparent with me and share with me how are you making income online and how much are you currently making?

I love happy endings :D we are close to a win win all my friends, just we are going to help with what seams to be a problem.

About three years ago today, a co-worker on my last job made a big difference in my life by being kind to me. As an immigrant myself, I could barely speak a word of english, but that didn’t stop from becoming my friend. She made me believe in humanity once more.

Thats great, I'm glad you had someone to help you. EXCELLENT because that encourages you to help others

Yes we can make a difference in someone’s life. What matter how we feel inside that day, simple act of smiling can change a person’s life. Too often we are too self absorbed to be bothered by other people, need to change that!

Nice post @cliffpower. I Really got inspired by your words. Good job!

@cliffpower It is simply great to share our experiences; and even more, to motivate others.
I am happy to know, in our world, we can found persons as you.

Thank you, I see your also a very kind person. Have a great day

@cliffpower Thanks, I wish a big day to you as well. Is a honor share this message with you. I want to remember always your name Id.
God bless you. I like to do a difference as you explained.

Right on thx I will also remember your name God Bless

The world will be full of love and enjoyable to live in when it is proliferated by people like you...God bless @cliffpower! Please continue being a blessing to others...

it's great sharing and getting to know fellow steemers, God Bless you @joshvel

I try but in my country is almost impossible to be happy, but we are trying always, Venezuela is my home; I hope steemit and all of you help me brothers and sisters

Dear @franmillan I want you to know that I am with you. I know the difficult condition of your country.
You have my support.

Appreciate how hard it is for people in your country, here's my upvote, it's not much but it's better than nothing!

Hello you have my support as well.

@franmillan I understand perfectly what you are talking about. But like my sis always says: " No matter the situation you're in, try to create heaven out of your living hell.

Hi franmillan, I am also from Venezuela yet happiness is a decision. We need all the help we can get however we must avoid mistakes in our country such as the bachaqueo... and most importanly contribute to educate people by setting examples. Be encourage .

Dear @franmillan , you have to make a deliberate decision to be happy, no matter what is happening around you, because a ship can not sink in the sea unless it allows water to enter it. What I am saying is that, if you don't allow the negative impression your country has to affect your mind, you will thrive and be happy. Because happiness comes from within. Never the less you have my support.

I am happy as you @zayan69 when I found a group of steemian as @cliffpower and you.

@sondoroy Hello steemian. It is a great post, because it is, exactly how we needs people act today.
I hope to read your post you again.

@nazmulsikdar98 Be aware, by 11.5.2018 you could be one of the winners.
If you work. See you soon.


860$ for this **** post?

Well, you will lost 150 SBD.

I know I'm amazed people really loved this one :) I will continue to encourage and one day I just might be a whale so I can give more :)

people really loved this one

99% votes come from bots. I think people don't like posts like this on trending (many downvotes from reputable members of community).

These comments are from real people and everyone else uses the bots just as much if not more. Do you know how I can see all my votes at once, sorry I'm still a novice :) I looked at a few people who flagged me and they use bots and upvote themselves like crazy. I'm one guy with one account and am in the guide lines of steemit.

I looked at a few people who flagged me and they use bots and upvote themselves like crazy.


I'm wondering why you don't at least fix the typos in your post. You paid all this money to be Steemit famous for a day, and that's how you want to represent yourself? Sloppy and lazy?

I flagged your post because I disagree with the rewards. What you did here was selfish. If members here decided this post was good enough to be near the top on the front page, I would never flag it. They didn't decide, you did. You spent hundreds of dollars to place a shit post on our front page and it makes us all look bad. If the greatest post in the history of this platform was produced today, it stands no chance of reaching this front page because of assholes like you taking that opportunity away from them.

👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 I will second that motion.

Amen @nonameslefttouse, I hate grumpycat, but I already hate this liar more.

I wasn't going to say anything, but he threw me under the bus. To his credit, I've seen some major improvements. It's unfortunate some of these people still insist on pushing their work to our fake trending page. It's unfortunate how many who take this road end up losing money and feeling scammed. It's unfortunate they don't allow others at least a shot at being seen while they trend multiple times per day. It's unfortunate how, in most cases, these folks don't realize they take away from others when they decide to place these sizable amounts of rewards beside their posts. It's unfortunate so many of us have stopped caring and simply leave. Every time I come across these situations, I too take a step closer to that door. I pointed out how this would happen many months ago. Now we're watching it all unfold. Soon it will just be a tiny handful of accounts paying more and more to push others down so their posts can sit higher. Then everyone loses. I think that's what they want though, otherwise, they would check themselves before they wreck themselves.

I read this comment live on the air today, crediting you of course, during a lively discussion around these topics, while doing episode 21 of Steemitizens of Steem, live on the @SteemStarNetwork. I'm uploading the replay video tonight to publish it by sometime tomorrow. Your remarks were very well received by our live audience.

Wow, so amazing what bots can do around here. @fblso Thanks for calling this out👍🏻👍🏻

read the comments boys those aren't bots. Were on the same playing with the same opportunities I don't get what your problems are. Maybe you just need a hug

good post

Wow just wow

People who have been through hard time are usually more sensitive to the needs of others and they are usually the ones who move on to make differences in many lives. Kudos @cliffpower.

Making a difference is easy. Just try to make it for the positive, not the other way around. Spread love!

When everyone have a wonderful passion to help and to love each other. we can make all of us feels like special in all aspect of life, and living with full of happiness, because everyone is deserve to be happy and equally LOVE!

Love it

Thank You1

As touching as this story is, I don't think it's worth a trending spot.

lol it is worth it. I didn't think I would get this many upvotes wow it's crazy. A changed life is worth a trending spot :) even if it's someone else. Have a great day. I'm enjoying all the post.

I'm glad you can be civil. Have a nice day yourself. :)

I flagged this because of extreme use of bidbots to your little to no effort post. This is no way saying that my content is any better than yours. Ya it has some good points but come on let’s get real.

I think it's crazy yo would flag this. Look at all the comments. these are people with a heart. It's not against steemit rules to post like this man you flaggers confuse me. A story doesn't have to be 10 chapters to be good. I'll be doing more post like this so get your flags ready. I'm going to see how I can stop you you flaggers. I could flag so many of your post because I thing there ridiculous but I don't. I'm only 4 months old on steemit so I have time to figure this out. have a great day

So I look a few of your post on ducks, food fights and pulling an all nighter and you flag me. I really don't understand. Maybe people get paid to flag? You enjoy your ducks. I remember when I had baby ducks and I let them walk on my chest as I was laying in the sun. All of the sudden one of them grabbed my nipple and almost ripped it out of my chest. I still have a scare. Don't worry I'm blown away as well at how many people liked my post as well. Cheers

Hello! Nice to meet you! This world needs more people like you!

hello nice to meet you

with God and I've been off the street now for 30 plus years and now I lead the largest kids outreach on vancouver island.

A testimony, i tell you. I haven't lived on the streets before, so i wouldn't know how hard it was for you, but I'm glad there are still people who care enough to reachout and show kindness. It gives me hope for humanity and i am glad you're paying back the world in kindness.

There's always enough love to go around.

Thx, It was rough for years but I have a great life. Have a great day and thx for the reply

mr. cat is mad at you now @cliffpower his flagging your post.

why this cat keeps flagging post. we used our own sbd to bid bots.. it is our freedom rights. it's our freedom. Is it our money right?

I know whats with that guy. I looked at his accounts and he's making alot of money. I wish I could block him somehow. I muted him and the dog but they still flag. I'm not doing anything wrong, Cheers

yes, he's feeling police here at steemit. instead of flagging post. why make himself more productive in the platform and support all minnows just like @surpassinggoogle did.

cheers brother

Yes forsure, I guess we got to get through these sharks to become a whales! lol

yes, I agree with you bro. he likes sharks here in the steemit platform.

his hiding at the back of his/her cat icon.hahahaha..pretending to be nice pussy cat..hahaha

he can't even show his face to the public hahhha..

LOL so funny meow

Always remember that God loves you so much :)

THANK YOU that is something I always want to remember, God Bless You Keep shining for God :)

Well said!

🙌hi friends @cliffpower greetings from Venezuela, very good post, I liked the image very much, I would like to have a little more time with this borrowed computer, to make a better constructive criticism, but I will be giving my contribution with my vote and this short comment of his post, nothing more to say his amgo always @manduto are wanted 🙌🙌

A moving story, but God is great and always keeps us in mind. Congratulations on your achievement.

Una historia conmovedora, pero dios es grande y siempre nos tiene presente. felicidades por tu logro

Hey thank you, I'm blown away that this post is doing so well. I love reading all the amazing encouraging post. Have a great day :)

A testimony, i tell you. I haven't lived on the streets before, so i wouldn't know how hard it was for you, but I'm glad there are still people who care enough to reachout and show kindness. It gives me hope for humanity and i am glad you're paying back the world in kindness.

This is one of the most beautiful write ups I have ever read.

Kindness they say keeps the world afloat. Thank you for keeping the world afloat, "for keeping us all afloat"as this is everyone's responsibility.

People like you, and a few like minds are not very many. Oftentimes, the burden that goes with being kind is so much to bear; especially when you hit a cross road, or when within you, there is nothing you can do or maybe that thought that you can't save everyone creeps in. Well, the good side is the kind ones still have to find a way and they always do. Truly, an ounce of help is not only better than a pound of preaching, but much mightier than doing nothing. I give credit to Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton.

Also, one of my favourite Mother Theresa quotes say...

and to be real frank with you, not only are you doing great things, you are also doing all the small once with great love.

Once again thank you for saving the world. Same thanks goes to every like mind.

thx good encouragement. Mother Teresa is amazing and a good example of loving the poor. Have a Blessed day

You have good thoughts....
I have written something on same lines please check.

excellent thx and have a great day. Keep up the good work

You don't realize the value of kindness until you run out of it! Great that your spreading your awareness @cliffpower

Even a simple smile can make a difference.

a simple smile can make difference u & me

Yes, I believe we can make a difference In people's life. All what you have said are just examples of what we can do. I'm glad you are passing this message to us all because I believe we have all learnt to be doing good because even Jesus, while on earth, he was doing good, so let's have Jesus as our role model and you will find out that our nation will get better . If we make a difference in one's life, I bet you, you will never lack.. Thanks for sharing this with us, God bless you

God bless you friend. Nice post, very emotional.

This is the true meaning of the song "one man can change the world " Anyone who has been in those shoes or crisis would understand. I stand with you on your outreach in Vancouver and hope I have enough money to imbibe this in my country too

Is there a link to the song? I'm interested in this

The children are our future generation and they are definitely going to make a difference

This is a first story after I become a steemit user. It's simple but touching. Thanks for your story. I'll try to make a difference in someone's life. ^^

I am sorry that you have lived. It is in the hands of man to make the world beautify and worsen. We must do goodness. For beauty, for our future.

@cliffpower, There is no act of love that is little or huge, but i keep wondering why some people always find it so hard to assist others despite the fact that they are well to do... as for me anyway, it has been my earnest prayer to be blessed and be a source of bless to others...may GOd help us all

Correcto hermano @cliffpower, bendiciones y exitos
