Hello. Me name is Zoey and I am a DIYer. The “do it yourself” or DIY industry has had such a boost lately. In the past few years, mostly because of the internet, most people are getting things done all by themselves. Be it from fixing cars, oil change, garage door repair, plumbing, building furniture, you name it, there is probably a YouTube video, a blog or/and a wiki on how to do whatever it is you want to do.
The Internet is the future. There is so much information out there about anything and everything. It has truly revolutionized the DIY industry. Recently I had an issue with my garage door opener. I went to YouTube and typed “how to fix my garage door opener” and there were many videos showing step by step on how to do this. The video is linked below. I checked everything, and it turns out my battery was out. Also i had no idea what some of the terms meant so I did a simple Google search and found a bunch of pictures like the one below.
So why am I telling you this? Well I believe that to truly make an impact it this world you have to go out there and do it yourself. You do not want to sit around and say “oh yeah the government is going to make an impact or the top richest people are going to make an impact in this world”. No, you go out there and make an impact yourself. The most inspirational quote that I live by is “Be the change you want to see in the world.” it is that simple.
Why do most people don’t make it? Because most people wait for things to miraculously happen to them instead of going out there and making it happen. If you truly want to make an impact in this world everyday, help others in a way that also helps you. We are animals who have self preservation and survival instincts edged into our brain through evolution. There is no escaping self preservation but this doesn’t have to be a bad thing if you use it in a “I scratch your back if you scratch mine”. We are natural doers and survivors. Do not let millions of years of evolution go to waste by wasting this awesome brain that we have that is capable of doing anything. Computers, planes, robots, cutting edge science all comes from the human brain. No machine is more powerful and capable of thought like the human brain.
So whether it is home repair services or changing the world you have to DIY! Now GO! and DIY!
