How to be a Better Human Being?
You must be wondering am I not a good human being. Of course, you are. But, can you become better? Of course, you can. But, how?
Before we head to how you can modify yourself into a better individual let me ask you the two most difficult questions.
Why were we born in this world? What purpose do we have?
No one has the answer to this. Some dedicate their life towards science; exploring new things improving existing technology and some dedicate their life to serve others. Rest of the people are lost in the cycle of earning and spending. They don’t even know what’s happening around them neither do they care.
Are you one of them? If you are then just ask those two simple questions to yourself that I asked in the beginning.
Not everyone can be the next Elon Musk but, everyone can be the next Mother Teresa who spent her entire life helping the people dying from various diseases.
I know this is a lot to ask. But, I can tell you few things that you can do to become an even better person without changing your life a lot.
1. Make others Happy
Nothing can be easier than this and nothing can be difficult than this. If you are happy you can make the whole world happy.
“The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively” – Bob Marley.
So, stop chasing money and start looking for happiness. It will redefine your life. Start with the small things, with your close loved ones then slowly increase the circle of happiness to the outer world. You will notice the feeling of happiness in you when everyone around you is happy.
2. Serve the needy
This must be the easiest thing to do because; the poor and the needy while showing their affection towards you for even the smallest effort from your side. You don’t have to spend all your wealth to serve the poor. Just start small, distribute one-time meal at the orphanage or old age home, or even just spend your Sundays there, it just takes your time to make them smile. If you are well educated then teach the poor kids for free. Join an NGO that imparts education for the less fortunate kids. Start small, dream big.
3. Surround yourself with love
Everyone who has achieved big in life reminds you to let go of people who are holding you down, who are filled with hate and you need to let them go now. Just don’t think twice, it’s now or never. Excuses are for the weak and you are not weak. Find people who want to bring change in the society in a better way, people who are doing all those things that you dream of doing every day. You need to let the positivity flow through your veins that is the only option you have.
4. Treat everyone equally
Every single individual in this world deserves to be loved equally. We all need to stop classifying people on the basis of color, size, religion or anything else. You never know what they have been through all these years. Don’t judge. Just show the immense love you have for everyone. Even if they have bad intentions for you beforehand it will change after seeing your behavior towards them.
Start believing in yourself and the world will start changing itself.
