Try to be the best you can everyday, everywhere you go, in all possible situations. If each person would strive to be their best continuously and not be satisfied with less, then the whole world would drastically improve!
I can’t change the world but I can change me! You can do the same! This powerful realization is the greatest hope of mankind. That each one of us will accept our God given responsibility and teach others to do the same.
Thinking Positive is world changing. If all commit to their personal best. If all sense personal worth & aim their highest. The results wouldn’t be just positive drops but mighty waves of Hope & Healing! If all joined hand’s & hearts, we would immediately change the world!
I can almost hear some say: Your extreme positive thinking is idyllic fantasy. Perhaps. But at one time in America, equality for all races & both sexes was just an ideal. And today this ideal is at least in law, a fact. We Believe first, then we achieve. Concepts Drive change!
What we think soon translates into Who We Are. What you believe is important. Each person is important. You are important. When each of us understands that it is the Bedrock of human growth, when we all believe in & adopt healthy change.
A healthy ground is imperative to a living thriving tree. A healthy core is crucial too good fruit. You and I are more important than we think we are. The fire of change does not start at the top. You light a fire underneath the stack.
We when we understand that we are supposed to be the change we seek. How can we expect our leaders to guide us where we do not want to go? If you and I as individuals will Embrace good and do good, then right leadership will be born & grow from our midst.
Understand you are a worthwhile, meaningful, and valuable creation of God. That there’s purpose & design to your existence. Help your neighbors see that they are indeed important. Help each one to believe the change they seek in the world must first start in their own growing heart.
No leader can take us where we do not want to go. If there was a Groundswell of passion among common men & women that we believe in forgiveness,, love, equality, tolerance, virtue, goodness, & the possibility of a better tomorrow, then our world would change from the ground up.
Leaders are people like you & I. We need to pray for them. We need to communicate with them & be the best citizens we can be. But, I weary at left & right throwing rocks at each other. Yes, we must stand for what we believe. But do so cherishing each other’s right to speak freely.
Some get mad at me for not expressing political opinion. But last time I checked: I can do this privately at The Ballot Box and privately with my pocketbook. It is my choice to urge us all to examine our own hearts and Minds and motives.
I often have to restrain myself and say “Slam” keep your mouth shut. Because my call is to help others look at their individual responsibility. And so I must keep my focus at looking at my own heart & mind and teaching others to do the same.
One nation under God indivisible is a powerful statement. But in order to see myself as indivisible from my brother and sister in America. I must not be too quick to throw stones. If I see it as my civic duty to be one with you, then I am less likely to run you down.
Many know I’m a martial arts teacher. I’m not a guy you want to fight but also not a guy easy to get to fight. I truly know how to turn the cheek. But when it’s necessary to protect myself or those I love, I’m not passive. But I’m careful to let this be my last, not my first Resort.
So help us God, to be one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
