So far, we've talked about nine different ways you can help grow more good around the world. Today we'll be sharing the last one. If you haven't seen our earlier entries, check them out here, but as you may expect, we saved the best for last.
When we began compiling our list of "10 ways to Grow More Good" we intentionally chose ways that everyone can accomplish. The ability to grow more good needed to be accessible to anyone who wished to make a difference. From deciding where to send your money to cleaning up your local environment, all that was required to make these changes was action from you.
"Being yourself takes an unbelievable amount of courage, and through this one courageous act, you can inspire others to do the same."
Of course, it doesn't stop with you. When you take these actions to grow more good, the effects ripple throughout your community and create incredible positivity around you. Positivity is one of the greatest motivators for change.
But the one thing we believe helps "grow the good" most around the world, the thing that has the most significant potential for creating a positive impact, is for you to be yourself.
It may sound simple. But to live life authentically and sincerely is anything but simple.
"There will never be another one of you, and the person you are may just be the one thing that makes the whole world a better place."
Choosing to be yourself--by not hiding, changing, or disguising the person you are--shows the world that you matter and have value. Being yourself takes an unbelievable amount of courage, and through this one courageous act, you can inspire others to do the same.
So often, we assume creating monumental changes requires monumental action. Sometimes it does. And sometimes, it's simply saying hello to strangers, reaching out to a friend, or being the person you truly are. Sometimes, these actions we can do every day are enough to shift the whole of the world in a better direction.
Who you are matters. Who you are is essential. There will never be another one of you, and the person you are may just be the one thing that makes the whole world a better place. You'll never know until you try.
Looking for a way to "grow more good" around the world? Be yourself.
