Read an excerpt:
This book was designed to help bring out your inner awesome by helping you find happiness, success, good health and balance with your body, mind and soul.
So how do we do that for the world? How do we bring out its inner awesome? How do we save it, how do we change it? Although the work is hard, the answer is actually very simple. The formula for a better world was written many years ago and it’s something I first came across when I was a little kid. It’s one of the most poetic, most profound and most important pieces of advice ever written: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
I love this quote for two main reasons.
First, although it’s from the Bible, it’s not specific to any religion. It describes a way of life that’s applicable to anyone regardless of their belief system.
Second, this one, short sentence describes the pathway to a better world. Think about it. If we all followed this way of thinking, if we all treated others the way we wanted to be treated, there would be no wars, no crime, no fighting. So many things in our world would improve.
We can look at this critically and think, “Why should I follow this way of life when, clearly, in a world filled with so much evil, no one else thinks like this?”
I encourage you to think differently. Don’t let others stand in the way of your trying to make the world a better place.
If you can change just one person to think like this, even if that one person is only you, the world is one person better than it was before. Change one person, change the world. You have that power because you are awesome!
