7 SIMPLE WAYS to Change the World

Hello There, VivBounty here to share with you 7 simple ways
to change the world.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you want to see in
the world.” The wonderful thing about doing this is that
you can set off chain after chain of positive events. Some
call it the Butterfly Effect. One small thing you do can
have repercussions all around the world.

Whatever positive actions you want to see more of, take
responsibility to produce it yourself. When you show the
world your willingness to be positive, others follow your
lead, and before you know it, you’re changing the world one
action at a time. There’s no better way to effect positive
changes in the world. If you’re stumped about what you can
do to make the world a better place, try these ideas:

1. Listen to what others say, without interrupting. It
sounds simple, yet you find yourself wanting to cut others
off in conversation or rush them to finish speaking. Truly
listening and then responding to what they say makes them
feel valued – like they matter – and that’s one positive
change you just produced. In being around you, they learn
to do the same and spread the concept to others, who then
repeat the process.

2. Give away some things. You probably have items in good
condition that you don’t use anymore. Pack a box full of
things you no longer use and take them to a local charity.
Someone will benefit from your items and you’ll both feel
good about your action.

3. Do something to help others.Research charities you’re
interested in and then offer to help. You could call the
local social service agencies and offer your services for
free. Maybe you’re an accountant and could do their
accounting at no cost. If you’re a maintenance worker,
offer your “fix-it” services to charities’ offices. You
could knit or crochet blankets, baby hats, and shawls for
local hospitals, hospices, or nursing homes.

4. Organize a volunteer effort to assist a group of
individuals. For example, collect boxed foods and blankets
and ship them to US military bases all over the world.
Another example is to raise money for construction
materials to send to Haiti to build new homes and schools
for communities hampered by storms. If you’re aware of the
needs of a certain group, start your own local efforts to
assist.

5. Deposit change in vending machines and walk away. A
simple and fun way to “pay it forward” is to put enough
change in a vending machine so the next person that walks
up can receive a drink or snack for free.

 

6. Adopt a family. During the holidays, you won’t need a
lot of money to share the holiday spirit with others.
Through local churches or social service agencies, you can
“adopt” a local family. The church or organization provides
you with the first names of a nuclear family’s members,
their genders, and ages so you can purchase 1-2 gifts for
each of them. Sometimes, the list you’re given provides you
with clothing sizes and gift ideas for each family member.
After shopping, place the tagged gifts in a big box and
drop them off to the organization sponsoring the
Adopt-a-Family event. You can bring joy and 2 happiness to
an anonymous family at holiday time. You don’t have to wait
for the holidays to help out a family. Missions all over
the world help support families that need food, clothing,
and school supplies. Your neighborhood churches can put you
in touch with someone in need.

7. Pay for a family’s dinner when you’re dining out. You
have a golden opportunity to change the world by
anonymously paying for a family’s meal. If you like, have
the server give them a note onto which you scribbled, “Pass
it on.” You can effect more positive change in the world
around you than you realize. Strive to do helpful, giving,
and caring actions for others. Demonstrating kindness is
truly contagious. Live a passionate life by changing the
world one action at a time.

Until next time, practice random acts of kindness, you’ll
be surprised to see that you are the one benefiting in the
long run.

Prosperous Blessings,

VivBounty
