It’s hard to believe that we are now in the year 2017. I know that I am. I am starting to see the good things, and the bad things, in society. A lot of that is due to the choices we have, but there are many more factors that have us feeling out-of-control. We may want to keep our heads down and do the right thing, but we are still going to make bad choices and do the wrong things.
Like me, most of us have our own opinions on how the world should be and should be done. Maybe you feel that society is a bit too harsh and that there are too many bad people out there. Maybe you feel that a certain group of people are taking too much of your time and money and you would want to try to help them. Either way, you have a lot of factors that are playing into your personal decisions, and you might be making a lot of poor decisions.
While you’re certainly not the only one making those decisions, one thing that I know is true: You can’t really ever be just a bystander. I know that I can’t just be watching the world and doing nothing. I know that there are a lot of people out there who are directly affected by what I’m doing.
I try to keep an open mind and question everything I read and learn. I’m also very careful of what I allow myself to be influenced by. If I’m asked a question that I know is going to be influenced by someone I’ve read something about, I will research it. If there are rumors floating around I might not like, I’ll let them remain.
In the case of someone I can’t believe is a friend or family member who might become a target of my investigations, I will also look to see if an investigation is already underway, if they will be the ones to bring me things, and how I can help.
This is a pretty good reminder that I need to be careful what I allow myself to be influenced by. I also need to look to see if someone is actively trying to influence me. If not, I need to ask myself and my team if I should.
There are plenty of people who are active in this space. So if you’re a member of one of these groups, I can help you get your own message.
I have noticed a fair amount of this in the past. The problem is that in an environment such as this there is nothing that you can do about it. You might try to be a great advocate for the group you are in, but chances are, they will just let you get on with it.
While you can be a great advocate for your friends, your own personal feelings can easily get in the way and set you back. You can help, but you will have to do more than that. Your feelings, thoughts, and actions will need to align with the goals of the group. That means you are the only one who can make a difference, and you do not need to be the perfect person in order to make that happen.
So who are the people that are in the group? They are the ones who will help you make the difference. The group doesn’t need to be perfect, in fact the most important thing about a group is that it can be imperfect. The group is made up of people who are willing to work together for the good of the group. You are a small part of this group, but the group has a great deal to do with the state of the world as a whole.
