22 Positive Choices That Make the World a Better Place

By my estimate, there seem to be two types of people in this world: the ones who believe it’s their personal responsibility to make the world a better place, and the ones who prefer to blame others for society’s problems.  While it’s true that many of us hover somewhere in the middle of these two polarities, most people do seem to have a tendency to one side or the other.

Now, it’s understandable that we would get mad about the things we don’t like in the world.  However, when we blame and finger-point, we really only make things worse. Here’s why:

Our words and actions radiate out into the world in every single moment.   The smile you give to the cashier brightens her day a little bit, and she then is a little kinder to the next customer.  This makes the next customer smile, and he then is in a better mood when his wife calls to talk.  Then the wife is a little happier, and shines her happiness on her children, and so on and so forth. 

Conversely, when we argue and complain, we activate negativity in the people around us, who then shine this negativity outward in the same manner as above. Our actions have wide-sweeping repercussions, regardless of what they are!

Therefore, we have the ability to make positive changes simply by making positive choices in our own lives.  Here a few things we can do every day to make the world a better place:

  1. Smile.
  2. Laugh.
  3. Call or text a friend just to say “hi.”
  4. Forgive someone.
  5. Take care of your health and well-being.
  6. Let someone “win.” Let go of the need to be right or be in control.
  7. Pay it forward (buy someone a drink or a meal, etc).
  8. Listen to music that inspires you.
  9. Give a big hug.
  10. Meditate.
  11. Play with a child.
  12. Be patient with others.
  13. Help someone who is struggling.
  14. Share your knowledge.
  15. Master a skill that helps or inspires others (like cooking, art, teaching, or any kind of trade service).
  16. Offer a compliment.
  17. Help someone less fortunate than yourself.
  18. Give thanks.
  19. Give back to your community.
  20. Be kind to yourself.
  21. Share a joke (a kind-hearted joke).
  22. Spend time doing something you love.

I hope you like this list of positive choices that make the world a better place.  Imagine how the world would look if each of us just made a few more of these choices every day!
