Rather than changing the world, change yourself...
First of all, attend to your 'inner' life. You need to understand your own values, then live and work by them.
Second: when unsure of yourself, look to someone whose thoughts and speech and actions you admire very much. Then emulate them... 'fake it 'til you make it', as the saying goes. Imagine what they would do or say in a similar situation.
Thirdly, listen more than you talk... that's why we have only one mouth but 2 ears.
Fourth: pay attention to what is happening- around you, and around the world.
Fifth: don't give in. If you fall down 6 times, stand up 7 times.
Sixth: believe that you are 'enough'. If you believe you ought to be able to save the whole world you'll soon feel disappointed, perhaps even a failure. Remind yourself that 'interdependence' is far, far better than being dependent or independent when something big needs to be achieved. A fine thread isn't very useful on its own, but when working with many others in a combined effort/strategy/pattern, the thread becomes a rope that can stop an elephant. Such is combined effort, team strategy, pattern, planning and management...a well oiled machine.
Seventh... give other people plenty of space and opportunity to learn and grow. Even if they make mistakes. If you find this hard, you may be a 'controlling' personality. If this behaviour isn't corrected, the controlling can destroy your life and the lives of those around you...
Lastly: balance all areas of your life... personal, family, health, career, and spiritual. Regularly set achievable goals to keep yourself on track. Too much activity in one area may end up in grief- e.g. breakdown of your personal or work relationships; bankruptcy; loss of 'purpose'; physical and mental breakdown...
