Everyone is freaking out about the state of the world.
Pandemics, race wars, social shaming, police brutality, military states, mass pedophilia, widespread ‘misinformation’… and the list goes on and on.
It’s clear to me that people need a crisis to latch onto.
People want to feel safe knowing they’re on the ‘right side of history’ and are doing their part to ‘make a better world.’ Even more, they want to make sure everyone knows about it… or else their efforts and beliefs wouldn’t be real, right?
I’m all for making a difference.
I’m all for standing up for something you believe in.
But if all you’re doing is reading/watching the news and jumping on every social justice bandwagon that rolls by…
… you’re actually doing much more harm than good.
What you should be doing is improving YOURSELF. Improving your life. Improving your relationships. Improving your behavior. Improving your attitude. Improving your own ability to love and be compassionate.
Believe it or not…
YOU have the power within you to do remarkable things. You have the power to move mountains and change the entire course of history. You have the power to do anything you can imagine.
But instead of cultivating that power…
You waste your time getting all hot and bothered about everything that’s happening around you.
Does any of that stuff matter?
Of course it does! I’m not saying it doesn’t.
What I am saying is that you’re using it as an excuse to avoid taking responsibility and improving you.
That’s the real challenge.
So the next time you want to call somebody or something out in the name of ‘righting wrongs and doing better’…
Take a good look at yourself and ask how you can change.
You’re not perfect.
I’m not perfect.
There’s a lot of work both of us can do.
If you really want to make a difference, that’s where you start.
Everything else is just a distraction.
Don’t be fooled by it.
Improve YOURSELF and the world will follow suit.
And when you’re ready 👇👇
