Yes, for all the hundred and one reasons that prevent people from doing anything, to tolerable the bad situation, to deny that problem exist, the crucial key is all the seemly difficult, problem can be easily solved. Yes, easily, I said. The key to make our world better is for you to make a small effort towards making the world better. The key lies in individual action. The key to understand the simplicity of it all is the real effective solution lies in understanding that it is “I” and “I” alone that is going to make a difference to our life, our society, our country and our world. Again, the solution is, “I can make a difference, my small action, and my action alone will make a big difference.”
You see, we used to talk about people power. “Together we shall overcome.” “Unity is Power.” If we get united, nothing can stop us. And indeed, we have seen people power at work and there are many changes and revolutions happening because people get united to make some changes. But there is a catch and it explains why, in spite of the fact that everyone knows this and can say it, our world is experiencing more and more problem and the majority of the people are not doing well, struggling all their life and wind up dependent on government subsidies and many are starving to death everyday or dying from infectious disease that can be easily treated cheaply and living in great poverty, there are wars, global terrorism, social unrest, climate changes that may spell doom to our world. Most people are struggling, living in fear and uncertainty. Most of the people believe in God but cannot figure out why a benevolent, loving God will let most of us living in misery.
The problem with, “Together, we shall overcome,” is because when we do that, we tend to look to our left, to our right, back behind to see who else is coming along. It is obviously more difficult to convince others to do what you want. It is much easier to start with yourself and convince yourself and just do something yourself first is all that really matter. Your first step is the beginning.
Just look at it this way. What does it take for one hundred thousand or a million people to walk the street at 2 pm July 1 is for you to ask yourself if you can on such date and time take a stroll along a designation route. But, wait a minute, you are obviously wrong here. You are talking about a million people; you are just one person, not a million people. You don’t multiply into a million. Very well said. It is so obvious. But. But, if you go to the starting point, just between you and the rest of the world, the starting point for everything you want to change in the world is you or I. I can’t control others behaviors, but I control my own behavior. The starting point for one million people to walk the street begins from I. And that is what I need to care and that is all I can care. And if we understand such simple concept, that we, or individually I, understand that for one million people to walk the people simply lies on my own simple decision to take the first step. And we all only need to worry about whether we our self, individually will take the first step and the million will happen. Let me rehash it again, I ask myself, if I believe in such a course, will I be able to so something about in whatever way I can. Usually the small way is the better way. Everything start with from this.
If you are convince, that it is actually quite simple to better your life by bettering the world, you can go to “How can I help?”
