When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.

The Alchemist
Page 150

How can you become a better person? Are you angry at someone? Do you hold grudges? Is it difficult for you to let go and forgive?

If you can let go of perceived hurts and move passed old emotional wounds, you’ll find your world is a happier place. You’ll also find the person who you’re angry at will become a different person, thus changing their world as well. One tiny change in your viewpoint can have a profound effect on the world in general. I’m sure there are instances when you’re around that someone who has hurt you and all you want to do is hurt them back. All that negativity is hurting you. How do you feel when you’re around them? Stressed? A pit in your stomach? Does that feel good? Wouldn’t it be far healthier to lose that pit, to lose that stress?

When you choose to forgive, everything around you becomes better too.

Do you feel stuck? Is there something you’ve always wanted to try? Maybe going back to school? Maybe finding a new job? Are you afraid to make that change? Any change we attempt can be scary. What’s more frightening however is being at the end of THIS go round in THIS lifetime and regretting the should haves the would haves and the could haves. Forget the fear. I know it sounds silly, but as Michael Jackson said:
Make that change!

You’ll be better for it. You’re never to old to learn something new. Go back to school. Better yourself. Knowledge is never a bad thing. When you learn something new, you’ve become a better person. If you share that knowledge the world becomes a better place.

Become better then you are!
