It does not matter where you live, where you are from, what language you speak, where you work, what you drive, what you wear, we are one. If you have love in your heart, you can make the world a better place.

You can make your own world a better place to live, to eat, to work, to love, and to connect with your soul. You can make your workplace a better place to work. You can make your home the best home in the world. The question is: Can you make a better world without love?

“Make yourself necessary to the world, and mankind will give you bread…”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Remember this: You can’t make the world a better place without first making yourself a better person. So, if you want to change the world, you must first change yourself. If you want to change your workplace, you must first change your thoughts. Why? Because everything starts with your own thought. The problem is not what you see, but how you interpret it. If you want to enjoy your life, always look for the beauty in everything. Don’t focus your attention on problems, but on solutions.

The world needs your love. Don’t hide it. The world needs your talents. Bring them out. If you don’t present yourself, no one can locate you. If you don’t tell people what you are selling, no one will know what you are selling. If you don’t tell people what you can do to change the world, no one will know what you are capable of doing. Don’t be timid in your actions. Be bold. Be brave. Let people know what you are capable of doing. And they will feed you. They will reward you with love and kindness.

Don’t assume that people know who you are. They don’t. If you want people to know what you are up to, tell them. Don’t sell yourself short. According to one famous Greek philosopher, “Life is too short to be small.” You are not cheap; you are expensive. You are not stupid; you are smart. You can make yourself. You can reinvent yourself.

The greatest value in life is to always do things to make yourself better every day. You cannot live your life without changing yourself. As the old saying goes, “If you are not changing, you are dying.” Change. Change yourself to change your life. If you want to change the world, change your life. Life is about change. Don’t stuck yourself. Make yourself useful to the world by digging yourself out of your comfort zone. Whatever you find to do to change your life, do it with all your love. Are you ready to make yourself necessary to the world?
