The below is from work, and again has a valid point for broader life. Enjoy.
Don't spend your precious time asking, “Why isn't the world a better place?” It will only be time wasted. The question to ask is, “How can I make it better?”
To that there is an answer. – Leo F. Buscaglia
Leo Buscaglia, a teacher and motivational speaker, was perhaps best known as a “cheerleader for life” because of his positive attitude and appreciation
for all the good life has to offer. He encouraged people to not just point out the problems we face in today’s society, but to look for a way to help;
to not just accept things the way they are, but be part of the solution.
Here in SB/SE we face challenges and problems everyday. And we are fortunate to have employees who think creatively – who work hard to come up with new
ways to address our ever-changing issues. Working together we figure out answers, or as Buscaglia put it, we develop ways to make it better.
But we all can do more. Don’t miss each day’s opportunity to make your corner of the world a better place. Take the time to make a positive difference in
this sometimes negative world. As Buscaglia wrote, “It is not enough to have lived. We should determine to live for something.”
