Push the world forward

Go out today and see if you can push the whole world forward just a little bit. It’s your turn to make a difference in your own special way. It may well be that no one will ever know of the positive influence you have in your world today. But you will know. And the world will be richer because of you.

You have a need to be needed. Everyone does. Think about it. Isn’t that incredibly wonderful? Do your part to fulfill and express that need today. You’ll lift not only your own heart but those around you as well.

Make yourself necessary. Make a contribution. The world around you is yours to the extent that you put a genuine and substantial part of yourself into it. When your every desire has been fulfilled you’ll still feel the need to make a difference. Be true to the unique person you are. Give the world your own special push as often as you can, and you’ll soon be delighted with the direction in which it is headed.
