Life in this world is tough sometimes. Despite all the love of loved ones, we still tend to feel left out and sometimes frustrated by our surroundings. We sometimes wonder if a person from the 15th century thought about today’s world and its issues.
What would be their take on this? Our grandparents often tell us how the world has become much more chaotic now. Poverty, unemployment, inequality, injustice, and abuse of power are some of the mandatory issues of almost every one of us.
The point to ponder is what we can do to solve all the issues around? Well, certainly we cannot change the world alone, and certainly, we cannot eradicate all the issues of this world. But we can always do a little bit of our part in this process.
Suppose we all today make small changes around us. In that case, I can assure you the snowball effect would make a difference in the community around us. We would be able to be part of some positive and much-needed change. Now the next question is what we can do to make the world a better place? Well, it’s time to explore this question together.
Here Are Ways To Change The World
Change Your Attitude
When we talk about changing your attitude. We talk about changing your approach a little bit towards others and yourself. So, what can be done? Well, for starters, you can make peace with your imperfections. Don’t let your weaknesses take over your personality.
The weight, age, complexion, and academic performance do not define you. Once you go a bit easy on yourself, you can make a little bit of change towards the way you see the world. You can be less judgmental; live and let people live. Someone’s preference in food and clothing is not your concern.
You can stop judging people on their appearances, an ethnic group they belong from, and the faith they follow. If we all just stop judging people, the world would be much more beautiful. Changing your attitude would only help you feel happy. You would just be giving positive vibes to everyone and your inner self. It isn’t difficult.
Think First Then Speak
Are you one of those who talk a lot? Or talk without filters? You may not understand, but the words you told someone in your high school can stick to them until their grave. Be more vigilant of yourself. Start realizing the meanings of your talk.
You would understand why you are saying what you are stating. It would save so much pain that we may cause people unintentionally. Not only this, the habit of thinking before you speak would make you a much more authentic and reasonable being. Your personality would become much more trustworthy to others. Who in the world does not want people to trust them?
Be More Optimistic Yourself
Optimism is a trait that requires effort. You need to be self-aware to think positively. We, human beings, are pessimistic by default as our brain prepares us for the worst. However, it is not always the worst that is going to take place. Is it?
So, we can always be more positive towards life. Positivity makes an individual glow in and out. Furthermore, it strengthens your immune system and lets you live life on your terms.
Always Smile More
A smile is such a beautiful gesture of comfort. Think! You are looking so beautiful while making someone comfortable around you. You may not realize, but your smile can make someone’s day. So, SMILE!
Always Try To Forgive
Forgiving someone is equivalent to providing you peace. We all need mental peace, and it cannot be achieved if you hate someone or built grudges for someone’s action. While someone made you pissed on the road or in a relationship, the feeling of anger would remain with you.
Let it go. Maybe someone overtook you on the road because they were rushing to the funeral and someone dumped you because you weren’t for them. Liberate yourself by setting someone free from anger. Try to forgive and let go.
Don’t Let the Day Make You, Make The Day By Your Own
Having a bad day? Reached office late? Is your ex bugging you? Is the spouse giving a hard time? Well, take a deep breath and understand. You don’t want the circumstances of your life to control you. You will be the one controlling the day and not the other way round.
When you are pissed, and nothing is right, stop and sit down. Try to have some fresh air, tea, coffee, or silence. Let the day sink in, and stand up to handle the day in your way. You bet you are pro on it.
Speak Up, And Take Action
Be more opinionated. The place of injustice is for you to talk and take action. Speak up against injustice, speak up for family, speak for friends, speak up for strangers. The world would provide so much strength to the victim if only we start being vocal about the issues.
The first step to change is recognizing the bad and is followed by speaking up and taking action against that bad. So, work on yourself and understand that speaking up and being vocal about your stance is your right, and you owe this to the world.
Process Of Thinking To Develop An Idea
There would be a lot of us who would say that writing this is far easier than implementing these changes. Well, we agree with you. This is the reason we brought you some help to take the first step of your journey towards change. How can you think and adapt to change? Follow the steps below.
- Step 1
Step one is to build the idea of change. Ask yourself what the issue is? Understand and recognize the issue around you. Now develop your perception of the issue. Why is it an issue for you? What is logical reasoning? Now you can speak on the matter.
The next step is to take action. What would you do to minimize the damage being done? What is your role in it? Is there anything you can do to change it or stop it or at least minimizing in it? Think about the medium of change.
Do you want people to be aware of it? How come? Creating a page on social media would help? Or making a speech on the academic forum? Maybe you can also work with an NGO. How come you can educate your family? Do your family and friends need awareness regarding the topic?
Jolt down all the questions thinking upon them and understand them. If you are successful in step one, half of the work is done.
- Step 2
Now you have a rough idea regarding the change. Refine it in step two. Which approach is suitable; Is the topic of change offensive for most people? Which group is getting affected by the issue the most?
Find that group interacts with its individual. For example, talking about wastage of water at domestic water is the issue. The people who do not get fresh water to use are affected by how this issue has influenced their lives.
If the issue is resolved, what changes would come? How practical your approach towards the issue is? Figure out and understand the possible and impossible scenarios. Workaround them and make a preliminary sketch.
- Step 3
Now is the time to talk and present. Be verbal about your idea with your social circle and family. What do they think about your approach?
- What do they think of the idea?
- If they have any contacts that could help you either finance or help you learn more about the need for.
- The potential impact of your idea on the world.
Create A Billboard, and Get Ready For Some Practical Work
Be positive. Stay positive and let others get influenced by your positivity. Smile and never tell anyone that things are going to get worse. Positive words can provide people with strength and much-needed energy. So be the beacon of positivity always.
Plant A Garden
In the world of deforestation and global warming, grow your garden. Planting trees can be soothing and, at the same time, beneficial for everyone in so many ways. So, invest your time planting trees. Plant a tree for each family member living in your house.
If you live alone, plant trees in your garden after all your close friends. The connection with the plant is long-lasting, more than we would admit.
You don’t have to follow any particular religion or philosophy to meditate, nor does meditation involve sitting cross-legged on the floor while chanting in a language you don’t understand. Ultimately, meditation is just a mindfulness practice that involves calming your thoughts and emotions so you can be in the present moment.
This helps to calm frayed nerves to alleviate stress and anxiety and creates a sense of peace and tranquility of spirit. That inner peace reflects upon all other facets of life: you may have more patience with others, or have greater self-esteem, or even just be able to appreciate the little bits of beauty you come across instead of being swamped by all the negativity in the world.
Clean Up Your Surround
Clean your house, your compound, and your surroundings. Even if you see someone throwing trash go and remove it silently. You never know who would be impacted by your actions. Since actions always speak louder.
Stay Away From Polluting Water
Do not throw trash in water in public places. Do not ever try to pollute it. Rather raise awareness among the masses on the impacts of water pollution.
Reconsider Your Eating Habits
You can always change the world by changing yourself. Do your diet is too plant-based? Are you a meat lover and eat it every day? Well, reconsider you’re eating habits and understand how they may impact you and your surroundings.
Try to have a balanced diet. A good combination of meat, vegetables, and grains would not only make you fit but would also help your immune system and brain activity.
Find Out More About What You Buy, Wear, and Use
Be more aware of your shopping. Understand what you buy and how it may impact someone. Do not use brands that harm animals. Ban the brands in your house which are violating laws and harming any creature on earth. Be more mindful. Ask questions while you shop since it is important.
Work in NGOs if the cause is close to your heart. Invest your time helping the community. Be the change yourself.
Always Be Kinder
Do not use hard words. Always smile and try to act patiently no matter what. Kindness will manifest your personality.
You are the change. If you embrace the change, the world will embrace the change. The most important thing in changing the world is recognizing and working on it. Small habits of your personality may benefit someone. Imagine if you successfully create a safer, happier, and better world for just one being.
Wouldn’t life be fulfilling? Think about the future generations. Let’s leave the legacy of positivity, kindness, and awareness. Educate the masses as much as you can. Raise awareness about small changes. The individual change that one person can bring in their life and community.
