I think it’s safe to say that we all want to live in a better world. How do we make that happen? By actively making changes within ourselves, our community, and our environment. So, if you’re ready to be a part of the solution and make this world a better place to live in for yourself and your children, read on.
There are many different issues in the world which require our attention, but that doesn’t mean you need to try to fix everything. You obviously can’t. But, if we all band together and fix one thing at a time, eventually, we will improve our lives by creating a better world.
First: Change Yourself
If you’re motivated to shake things up and make the world a better place, change yourself first. No matter who you are, there is always something you can do to be better and do better. Starting with yourself is the easiest thing you can do. Because the only thing you truly control in this world is YOU.
Think about it. If you want to get in shape and feel better, start going to the gym and eating healthier. Stressed out and tired of being, well, tired? Make sleep a priority and make time to decompress. That might mean running, reading, or visiting with friends.
Not only do you have total control over these small lifestyle tweaks, but they’ll also make you feel better by boosting your self-esteem. And when your self-esteem is boosted, you’re more likely to be productive. Oh, one more thing, productivity breeds happiness.
So as you can see, changing yourself has a trickle-down effect that will enhance your life and give you the motivation and confidence to start making changes outside of your inner circle. And that’s when things can get interesting. Keep reading.
Second: Consider Your Community
The world will not change on its own. We ALL need to work together to ensure that positive change is achieved. People are naturally cooperative. Consider how much progress could be made if we all spent as much time improving our communities as we do updating our social media accounts. Powerful thought, isn’t it?
Consider your own community and areas for improvement. Does your town have a litter issue? If so, why not organize a team of volunteers to pick up trash once/month.
Are there homeless people just struggling to survive? Contact local agencies to inquire how you can help. It could be as simple as reaching out to local non-profit organizations willing to provide shelter or food. You might be surprised how far a little motivation and research will get you, and your community.
Is crime on the rise? Consider taking your movement a step further by embarking on an online Policing program which will allow you to help your community directly by representing the law.
Regardless of how you choose to get involved, organizing services that encompass the whole community and require people to work together toward a common goal will no doubt cause positive change.

Third: Enhance Your Environment And The World
Until we manage to colonize Mars (sometime around 2030, maybe?), Earth is the only planet we have to live on. Because of this, it seems a bit short-sighted to believe that our little planet will magically fix itself.
Unfortunately, we have done a real bang-up job of altering Earth – in a bad way. Fortunately, though, environmental conservation has become a hot topic for just about anyone not living under a rock. That means = We actually care what has been done to Earth and, collectively, want positive change.
Doing your part to help reduce the overall carbon footprint, whether it be carpooling to cut down on emissions or planting trees in your backyard, will go a long way to ensure that our lives and the lives of future generations are healthier and happier.
