Have you made a positive difference? It's the only question that counts when we are dead and gone.


What motivates you to believe that making a positive difference is the only thing that matters when one is dead and gone?

If you got children I think the answer would be pretty obvious. Or if you have some sort of morality and intelligence of what life is. That's why this world if full of corruption...people don't care what will happen to the world in 50 years, they will be dead.

I don't think you necessarily have to change the world. All you have to do is live your life right. Like you could have someone who writes a best selling novel that impacts millions of people, but they live there own life like hell. Meanwhile you have some simple naive person who doesn't do anything really in there life, other than to just live well. Who's better? Maybe one maybe neither. But I think I'd lean toward the one who just lived well.

I have this motto. You don't have to change the world. You just have to clean up your own life. So start by cleaning up your house. Once that's done clean out your fridge, and clean out any other space that you've been messing up. Then just continue to clean. Give away old stuff you don't use, and old clothing. And just clean up. Then also start to clean out your mind of old patterns and behaviors that have been harming you. And start to adopt new positive habbits. Then once you've cleaned up, and you could do all that in under a week, you might then be in a better position to start looking at helping others, and cleaning up others.

Like the saying goes: "how can you expect to help your friend take the spec out of their eye, when you have a log in your own. First take the log out of your own eye, so you can see clearly so you can help your brother with the spec in there's"

When you are dead, how much money you made, how famous or powerful you were, how much pleasure you had, how many people remember you, all this will not amount to a hill of beans.

Positive is subjective to the person that is experiencing the feeling.

I'm sure some Famous and powerful people feel they are doing positive things.

Our ego's and minds believe what they want to.
