For example, if a person desires to make the world a better place to live in by safeguarding the environment, he should make a conscious effort of choosing the things that he uses, support the manufacturers and retailers which are more environmentally responsible, utilize renewable fuel, segregate waste, and volunteer in environment rehabilitation projects like tree planting. A person cannot start asking the government to institute these changes if he himself is not able and even willing to abide by these practices. It is impossible to influence others without really having the passion and commitment to institute these changes. Secondly, I believe that a worldwide transformation will be a matter of achieving individual moral excellence and discipline. It is irrefutable that the problems we are experiencing now are the results of our past actions and decisions. Thus, this can only be minimized and even eliminated if we choose to abide by what is morally right and restrain ourselves from doing wrong. Crimes are hugely a result of moral degradation and it can only be eliminated if each of us commits to a life of moral excellence. Moral excellence, on the other hand, is largely a factor of how we discipline ourselves and stick to what we perceive as right. Changing the world is a huge task which requires serious actions. Transformation is a complicated process which takes time and serious commitment to take place. Changing the world will only be possible if each of us will have the commitment to change ourselves.
