Have you ever had one of those deep hour long conversations where it is just you and another person sharing your most vulnerable and candid state, without the need of any pleasantries?
The kind where both parties feel completely at ease and can open up about each other’s dreams, hopes, aspirations, believes, and passions. I recently had one of these with my father and it got me thinking.
What percentage of the 7 billion+ people in this world have taken the initiative to create a positive impact on the world?
I also realized, a majority of my thoughts are about myself. And from what I can tell, so are everybody else’s. Our world and how we view it does revolve around us. At least in our own perceptions.
And it planted an idea in my mind, what if I tried to change this? What if I made most of my thoughts focused on others and how to help them, how to address global issues, and how to help the environment?
Instead of having my thoughts be about what to wear, or about my own petty concerns, why not consciously turn my thoughts towards others? Is this how we as a population can begin to be more thoughtful, selfless, content, and globalized thinkers?

I’ll have to try tip #5 as concealing blemishes is always a nuisance for me.
