how to change the world- my view

Yesterday night I was having dinner with a friend and I told him that our India office is closed tomorrow because of shutdown strike called by opposition party. Then the discussion went on to India, its politics, Oil price and global issues at large. My friend said that when he was in college he wanted to do something to change the world- to make it a better place!

When I woke up today morning the same topic came back to my mind and how a person can contribute to make this world a better place?

The world is made up of individuals. We all suffer. We all go through bad relationships, difficult jobs, hard life experiences, loss, pain. In fact, that’s what most of life is.

But if you slowly work at incrementally improving yourself. then you will make life better for yourself. And as each person makes life better for themselves then incrementally the world becomes a better place to live. We treat with each other with more kindness, more honesty, less betrayal, more humility.

Everyone is coming up with a new smartphone "App" claiming that they will change the world.  No app will do that. The only way the world will change for the better is to improve yourself everyday.
