When it comes to making some (any) kind of difference in this world, most of the people doing it aren't that different from you and me.
Most of them don't have any “special privileges”, they are not particularly “advantaged”, and they often come from broken homes and horrible circumstances, with limited skills and resources.
But the defining trait of all of them, is that no matter their background, at some point in their lives, they made a choice to rise above where they came from, and learned and did whatever they needed to learn and do, to transform their lives as well as the lives many around them.
So, What Makes a Mover and Shaker?
You'll find that most movers and shakers fall into one of three categories.
We’ll call category one the “haters”. You know who I’m talking about. They are the folks who walk through life complaining bitterly about anything and everything that crosses their minds.
We’ll call the second category the “status quo keepers”. You most likely know a few of those too. These are the people who go through life sort of… going through the motions. They are not particularly unhappy but they are not particularly happy either. They are content to remain as they are, putting forth only what is required of them to get through the day.
Then you have the third category, what you might call “the motivators”. The motivators are energetic and inspiring. These are the change agents who see the bigger picture, and feel they have been called to higher purpose in life. These are the folks that go out and make things happen and get things done, quite literally creating a better world around them, everywhere they go. So, what’s so different about these “motivators”? Their Lives Have Purpose
People who have discovered their life’s purpose have usually done so because they’ve emerged like a butterfly from a long history of heartaches and failures.
They have most likely done things the hard way at some point in their past, and they have learned many lessons from their mistakes along the way.

Not only the Durbar Square of Kathmandu is worth visiting, but also those that reside in Bhaktapur and Patan. These ancient squares were primarily used for trading in previous centuries and all lay within kilometers of eachother in the Metropolitan Kathmandu area. Although post the earthquake in 2015 the buildings surrounding these squares collapsed, by now the Nepalese have been able to restore most of them to their former glory as is visible in our picture dating back to July 2018.
