It is true, you alone do not have the power to change the world. There are too many variables to consider. Race, religion, politics, upbringings, and so on. How can you possibly have the solutions to solve all the problems of the world?
Yet, hope is not lost. This is not a reason for you to throw up your hands and say “what can I do?”
So often we spend our time looking outward. We focus on other people and other situations that we neglect to reflect on ourselves.
Stop pointing fingers and blaming other people for how you see and interpret life. We are with each other for a reason and a season. Meaning we may share an experience and partake on a journey together, for a moment in time. Our paths may move alongside one another but we move as one. Even when we are together we still see and experience differently.
You cannot do everything. You cannot change other people, you cannot change how they will act, what they will say, what they will do.
But you can do something. You can change yourself, you can change how you will act, what you will say, what you will do.
You can decide to make your health a priority.
You can decide to be the light in the darkness.
You can decide to love even when you are not loved.
Everyday focus on being the best version of you possible. Do ONE thing daily, that will let the light within you shine bright.
You can decide to sit back and let life happen or you can decide to control what happens to you.
You can decide to eat processed foods or decide to eat life foods.
You can decide to allow life to bring you down or you can use the circumstances of your life to motivate and inspire you and others.
You can decide always see the negative of a situation or you can make the best of every situation.
When you strive to make yourself the best, people cannot help but become attracted to you. You become a positive force that shines bright. This is not to say it will be easy, this is to not say you will not have haters. Remember you cannot control the emotions and actions of others. You can only control you.
The moment you decide to be the positive change in your life an amazing thing happens. Your brain and body as whole begin to believe it and work toward making these positive changes a reality.
Your posture becomes more erect, your mood becomes happier, people will comment on how you are different. The light that is inside of you begins to shine outward and your skin will begin to glow. You will become a force to reckon with. People will begin to seek advice from you. People will follow you.
You cannot change the world but instead change yourself. Great leaders lead by example.
You cannot do everything but you can always do something.
