This whole quarantine thing is really getting to me. I’ve had so many ideas for things I could do to improve. But those ideas are thwarted by the current situation.
I want to join some organizations I think will help me. Specifically, I want to join Toastmasters and a Cash Flow Club. I might do more than that, but I think those will be a good start.
I seriously need to improve the influences in my life. Reading good books helps, but it isn’t enough. Right now I’m spending way to much time around angry people who have no interest in improving themselves, and not enough time around happy people who want to be better.
Once you’ve improved yourself, you’ll be in a better position to improve the world around you.
There’s a YouTuber called Mr. Beast. My boys love him. A lot of his videos are dumb, but they’re popular and make him a lot of money. Does a lot of that money go to dumb things? Sure. But he’s also very generous.
In one video he bought a bunch of cars and opened a car dealership. He sold the cars to people in need for ridiculously low prices. In one case he gave someone money and a car. He also started #TeamTrees with YouTuber Mark Rober and raised money to plant 20,000,000 trees.
I still think a lot of his videos are dumb. So what? He’s a great example of what good people can do when they have money.
Money’s not the only way to help people, though.
Improve your spirituality, and lift the people around you that way.
Become a personal trainer or a dietician and help people be healthier.
Become a therapist and help people with emotional issues.
Join a club like Toastmasters and work on your public speaking skills.
Start a blog.
Start a YouTube channel.
Make cool things and sell them online. Or share them for free, if you want.
There are so many ways to improve yourself. The first step is to look for something that interests you and work at getting better at it.
