Are you dedicated to helping people live meaningful, happy lives?
Living a life committed to helping people achieve happiness and success is one of the most admirable things you could do.
Every time someone tells me about their struggle to find a career that’s suited to their personal qualities, I can’t help but direct them towards careers and opportunities focused on helping people live easier, manageable lives.
Why do I have this bias?
What has lead me to dedicate my life towards helping people who struggle with the day-to-day battering of modern life?
Why did I create an organization that is proud to teach the most essential life skills to lead a fulfilled balanced life?
There is a lot of injustice in the world, many of which hurt our very existence.
I want to change that, and you probably do too.
Whether you found this article through a search on Google, social media or through word-of-mouth, you want to make the world a better place and you want to know how.
And that’s exactly what I’m going to show you.
1. Raise awareness about problems via blogging or social media
Blogging is an excellent way to raise awareness about problems in the world and help people. Blogs have grown tremendously over the last 10 years and are now considered the 3rd most trustworthy source of information.
If you want people to join your cause for raising awareness about a social issue or problem – start a blog or social media account for it.
Everyday Feminism is an example of an organization wanting to raise awareness and dismantle the presence of discrimination, marginalization and more recently, cultural appropriation in the west.
Another example that comes to mind is Jes Baker, author of The Militant Baker and Things No-One Will Tell Fat Girls. She is dedicated to helping people love their bodies in a world where the media and society encourages us not to.
Are they setting the world alight, by fighting cancer or discovering planets outside our solar system?
But are they helping people lead happier lives? Without a doubt.
2. Teach Anything
Education is vital for success in life, but contrary to popular belief the institution where you receive that education isn’t a strong indicator of how well you’ll do over the next 25 years.
I’ve always said that knowledge is power. With it you can change the world, without it you are ignorant. Being committed to lifelong learning and teaching is a fantastic way to help people who are missing the vital ingredients to reach their goals.
What you must understand is that nobody holds all the keys to knowledge. Everyone can learn something from another that can drastically change their perceptions, beliefs and outcomes.
Nobody is born with innate knowledge of how to budget effectively, build confidence or code a website from scratch. We have to learn it, either through trial-and-error or through another person.
Teaching people skills such as how to write a compelling CV, paint a house, tie their shoes or attract the opposite sex can add much value to their lives.
Online education is now a $22bn industry in the U.S alone! People want to better themselves and improve their lives. They may just need someone like you to help them take that first step.
3. Be a good friend
Being a good friend who can support and care for others in times of need shouldn’t be undervalued.
We’ve talked about the qualities of a good friend before and why they’re so important.
Many people love to say that charity starts at home but are not actually charitable people.
If you believe in this proverb, then you can start making positive changes in the world right now, by helping people who are closest to you.
Whether they’re going through bereavement, relationship breakups or are left redundant from work, being there for them will make getting back on their feet that much easier.
You don’t need to be a qualified therapist to help someone feel at ease when they’re going through bad times.
Sometimes, listening is more than enough.
If there is nobody close by who you could lend an ear to, then go online.
Websites such as 7 cups of tea and blahtherapy allow you to “listen” to strangers who are going through a multitude of problems. You can also be a “venter” – share your problems and ask for solutions from others.
A word of warning for those who wish to vent their problems. Whilst most members of these online therapy platforms really love helping people and mean well. Most are NOT professionally-trained mental health experts, thus can only give basic advice.
