How To Change The World
I think this post may be better written by someone like Mother Theresa or Ghandi, but I'll give you the best 'average person' rendition I can come up with.
Whether it's your life mission, or just some secondary thought, I really believe every one of us in some way wants to leave a legacy and change the world, even if it's in a small way.
I've got good news for you. You don't have to be Albert Einstein or Martin Luther King to change the world. They were some of the great exceptions, yes. But even smaller gestures can change the world too.
I'll give you a few examples.
1. Be the ultimate YOU. Sounds simple enough, right? But how many of us aren't even entirely sure who we are or who we want to be? This is the case more often than you think. Work on yourself, and you project that on to others. Be the best version of you that you were created to be. Use the gifts you were given. After all, the great creator (I choose to call him God, but whoever you believe in works too) created you as an individual. Why not strengthen those qualities you were blessed with? Be the ultimate version of you. You deserve it, and the world deserves to experience that version of you too.
2. Spread a little kindness. The world around us is full of negativity, sure. But what are you looking for? I choose not to watch the news...this may come off as ignorant, but I'm ok with it. Heres why...the news likes to inform us of all the negativity in the world. Maybe I'm living in an ignorance is bliss mentality, but very seldom does the news focus on the good. And good is all around us, if you look for it and create it. Be the one that smiles, pays a compliment, or helps someone who needs it. Not only will you radiate joy to those around you, you'll be happier too.
3. Stop complaining. I once read an article that stated for every complaint we make, it takes 3 positive statements to counteract it. That has stuck with me since and I make a conscious effort to keep my thoughts positive. We become what we think about, and complaints are nothing but toxic. If you have something to complain about it, think about it like this...can you change it? If you can, make the change. If you can't, let it go. Simple.
I'm sure you can come up with 1000 valuable ways to change the world, but these are a few key ones of mine. Think of yourself as a light beacon, and every time you radiate light it bounces to the next person, if they choose to benefit from it then they light up and it radiates to the next person beyond them. Similar to ripples on a lake if someone were to throw a rock into it, change within ourself for the better will positively effect other people too.
Today, be the change. And by doing that, you can change the world.
