Wow! Thank you for your interest. When speaking in regard to the possibility of any action, one might say that anything is in fact a possibility. One of the most enlightening days of my life was when I realized a fact that was simultaneously amazing and depressing; that inside of the informed human collective, there is no true originality.
I was trying to imagine that there was a way of presenting a line of thought that could be used to instil a sense of passion and motivation into peoples hearts; enough so, that the intense drive for labels (that people seem to to be so obsessed with these days) could be set to the side, and that people could be motivated toward an end that would have mankind open to a drive for continual self betterment, AND of an acceptance and understanding of the right of others to remain truly free (anything outside of hurting anyone else physically, mentally, emotionally, or financially - though, I could agree that lines on that do become blurred for many reasons, and theres too much involved inside of that to speak without fully rambling). I then thought of people like Mandela, or of Lincoln, or Lennon, or Shakespeare (?), and realized that although language changes throughout any age, there is no new way to say things that bring people together... It ends up being a matter of timing and personality (as you'd mentioned), that when mixed with a certain drive, makes someone great.
Then I thought of the positive side of this. There can be no loneliness in any attempt to be a good person. If one focuses on doing the right things, and lives right by others, whether or not it is seen by one, there is another somewhere who believes the same, and is choosing to live in a positive fashion.
My original question was in regard to finding a path. With an ability to see any multitude of paths, one may find it insanely difficult to drive on a path that could eventually lead nowhere - on the off chance that circumstances will align and opportunity presents itself. That is why I was curious about others thoughts as to whether or not one should CHOOSE to take a step back, and to focus on being good inside of an area that would only affect only one's own life, or to continue driving (though it could indeed be said that in doing so, one may be presented with an opportunity to affect more - but a man can't go (from one day to the next) from a bum on the street to a true leader).
