Is there anything more rewarding in life than dealing with sick people and seeing them make a full recovery? Whatever part of healthcare you work in, it can be an amazing experience. Doctors, nurses, physios, therapists - they all make a big difference to people’s lives. It’s not just the people they treat, either - it’s their families that will give you their appreciation, too. Of course, getting into healthcare can take a lot of time and training - for doctors, especially. But, if you dedicate yourself to the seven years or less it will take, there’s no reason why you can’t succeed with your goals.  

The legal world is a vital component of our society - despite the bad rep that lawyers and the police get on occasion!

You could teach children from any age, from preschool through to university students. You can also look into alternative routes, such as private tuition, or teach a musical instrument. If you can get on well with people and act as a positive role model, you have every chance of success.

Of course, if you really want to change the world, your best bet is to enter politics. It’s not for the faint of heart, whatever route you choose, but it is something you can do at any stage in your life. Think about getting involved with your local party of choice, and see where it takes you. You might end up delivering leaflets, talking to residents, and holding big community meetings. There are plenty of guides out there to help you get started, from the likes of, amongst others. If you make any headway, you could end up in the town or county government office if you can muster enough support. Affecting change at a local level can improve the lives of your community immeasurably. Think you can make a difference?

So, plenty to choose from. But, you can also make a difference in many other industries, too. Take builders, town planners, and architects, for example. They all make a difference by creating homes and communities for people to enjoy. Can you think of any more? Let us know!
