BetterWorldians Radio today announced a new episode that features a variety of guests sharing inspiring words on how to help make the world a better place. Best of BetterWorldians Radio aired on Thursday, February 5th on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel and is now available via podcast at BetterWorldians.com.
Each week on BetterWorldians Radio, co-hosts Ray, MarySue, and Gregory Hansell ask the question, “How do you hope your work is helping to make the world a better place?” The answers are always different, and always inspiring and thought provoking. On this special episode of BetterWorldians Radio, the co-hosts shared some of the their favorite responses to date.
Lori Deschene, founder of the popular website TinyBuddha.com, discussed how learning to accept oneself can help create a better world. “Developing compassion for ourselves and changing our perception of our journey is crucial to making the world a better place,” said Deschene. “Even if that means making our own corner of the world a better place, right where we stand, that can make a huge difference and that is what I strive to do.”
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Co-executive Director, Jay Scott, discussed how anyone, no matter who they are, can help make a difference in the world.“Anybody can change the world. You know, you can do it with small things,” said Scott. “You can do it with big things, but to do it in a big way, you have to start small.”
Dr. John Arden, neuropsychologist and author of Rewire Your Brain, explained how people can improve their own lives by giving back. “I really feel that giving is receiving. So if you’re more capable of being a generous person, you’re really more capable of feeling positive emotions,” said Arden.
A quote from Jenn Lim, Chief Happiness Officer at Delivering Happiness and author of the Zappos culture book, was also included. “We all know happiness is contagious,” said Lim “We believe, one by one, we're creating a happier world.”
Tom Ziglar, son of the late Zig Ziglar, talked about what he believes legacy means and how anyone can create a legacy that helps make the world a better place. “You know, somebody asked me once what does legacy mean? And I said you know, I think a legacy is the subtotal of all of the impacts that you have on others’ lives,” said Ziglar. “So if you impact somebody and they impact somebody and they impact somebody, your legacy extends out three or four generations, three or four different levels.
