If you read about people who’ve changed the world, you’ll learn that they really did it with the intention of helping people, not with the intention of making money. They identified a common problem people had, and found a solution. I read somewhere that “If you change yourself, you have already started to change the world” That is the goal that we should all strive for.
The World Now
“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never , ever have enough.” – Oprah Winfrey
Sometimes you have to step back from everything that’s “bad”, and realize, and appreciate all the good that you do have in your life at this moment in time. Really take inventory of even the smallest things that you take for granted ie, food, shelter, and loved ones etc, and be thankful for it. Somebody else is not as fortunate as yourself. Nothing wrong with wanting more, but at the same time we should appreciate what we have and not what we don’t have.
“By changing nothing, nothing changes.” – Tony Robbins
If you are not where you want to be, then that’s a problem. As you know, you can’t help somebody else if you can’t help yourself. So, I know that your excited to help people but help yourself first. The first step is to have a strong why? This will serve as the foundation of your “world-changing self”.
To start, write down what you like about yourself. Then write down your flaws, and next to each flaw write down why you would want to change that. Keep in mind that you shouldn’t be trying to change because somebody else thinks you should. Do it for yourself. Try to figure out how you can fix these flaws and turn them into strengths. These strengths that you want to improve on will become apart of your daily action steps.
“The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” – Jimmy Johnson
Now it’s time to do the hardest part, take action. If you think too much before taking action you may never happen. Here’s what you do, every night write down six things you’d like to accomplish the next day that will get you closer to your goals. I’ve been doing this for the last month or so and I’ve gotten a lot of things accomplished! You can do it too! And don’t worry if you don’t compete your list each day, whatever you don’t do today should be on the top of your list for the next day. Give it a try for a month or two and put effort into it. Whatever you choose to do, commit to it 100%. Even I struggle with this but if you focus, good things will happen.
Let’s just do it together. Let’s get after it right now because if you don’t start today, there’s a good chance you won’t start tomorrow. Do something you love and are passionate about and find a way that your skills can help somebody. If you can do that, the feeling of fulfillment, and financial wishes will find you. Why so serious!? Smile, laugh, and enjoy the company of others once in a while. Try to enjoy life everyday. Don’t take everything seriously. Not everybody will understand you or your mission in life, but that’s normal. They will talk badly about you, doubt you, and give you bad vibes. Distance yourself from those people and connect with people who do understand you and will help, and encourage you.
Billionaires, millionaires, middle class, and broke people mostly converse with the same class of people. But it doesn’t have to be that way, find a way to connect with the people who are where you want to be. Nobody is above, or better, than any other person so don’t be afraid to reach out to someone who you might consider “above” you. And never forget where you came from. So how can we change the world together and have fun doing it? By changing our outlook of the world and trying to add value into it by doing something that is meaningful to you. The fun part is doing something that gets you excited! What ideas do you have for fun ways to change the world? Comment below, let’s chat!
Remember, “If you change yourself, you have already started to change the world”
