How to Become an Asset by Depicting Your Purpose in This World
Many of us wonder about our purpose here on earth and we believe that we are living because we need to fulfill the mission of our existence. We read, watch and hear bad news every day and we feel that the world is more unsafe and scarier. Unemployment, crime, religious war, terrorism, poverty, domestic violence, and pessimism are becoming rampant in various parts of the world, threatening our existence, our future and our children’s future. It is easy to underestimate ourselves, thinking that we cannot do anything and we just accept the reality that these are all part of the world we live in. However, as parents of the next generation, we need to act and do the right thing, teach our children to become good citizens and be a good example to others.
Let us start the change in our homes, with our family because if we are able to do it, then we are confident that we can also extend and do it with our neighbors and the larger society, making our world happier, safer and a better place to live in. It is not easy to change our shopping habits, but you must realize that you can be of help if you purchase goods from ethical and reputable companies, and availing of your own local products.

It feels good to give back to the community by being a volunteer of a charity event, a health mission or a disaster relief and do your bit for a better world. You don’t have to spend too much time especially if you’re busy, just find time and make the most out of it.
