Be the Change You Want to See in the World
The great Sue Fitzmaurice once said that it doesn’t matter if we’ve stood with the great if we didn’t sit with the broken. It’s a powerful quote that speaks volumes about our nature. How many kings and queens can you list that are regarded as people worth following? We guess it’s only a handful. But, take a look at religion and you’ll find figures that have inspired nations.
Buddha and Jesus, for example, sat with the broken. They helped people with their suffering and found ways to help them. These people rejected the elite who took everything from the poor and gave back nothing. You should do the same. In the end, all that matters is if you helped someone, not joined the 1% that have everything. Wealth means nothing in life – we all go back to the ground without it.
What You Do for the Broken Matters
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise – what you do for the broken matters. Especially now when the world is in such turmoil. There’s a growing disparity between the rich and everyone else and many lives are ruined for money and profit.
Thankfully, there are still people with big hearts that help the poor and broken. These are new-age messiahs we should follow instead of politicians and rulers. Don’t be focused on your career or yourself and never ignore the broken – they need support and you should provide.
Wealth and recognition don’t matter – helping those in need does. The hungry and the poor need all the love and support they can get and it’s up to us to provide it. Be the change you want to see happen in the world. Lend a helping hand and be an inspiration to others – it’s the only way to destroy the darkness.
There’s a Reason Why Great Leaders Have Place in History
There’s a reason why great leaders such as Jesus Christ and Buddha have inspired millions. They could have stayed silent, they could have not helped anyone. Yet they choose to make the lives of others comfortable and sacrificed a lot to make it happen.
These great people changed the world in many ways and you could do the same. Look up to their spirit. You won’t earn a lot in wealth, but you’ll surely feel much better. And you’ll start changing things for the better as well – what could be better than that?
