We should ask ourselves every day what we can do to make a positive change in the world. This doesn't mean that we have to do something earth-shattering or radical every day, but we should do what we can, remembering that more is expected of those to whom much is given.
Sometimes a positive change can come from something as simple as a smile or a kind word, and other times it may require significant effort or risk. One way to bring about positive change is to be a good role model or a mentor. If you work as a teacher or in the creative arts, you have a tremendous power to change people's lives. But even if you simply work in some area where you interact with people regularly, you can have a tremendous impact, for good or ill. If you have bigger plans about how to make a positive change in the world, such as doing volunteer work or starting a charitable organization, get started immediately, rather than waiting until you feel ready. Chances are, you will never be absolutely ready or know everything you need to know in order to get started without a hitch. We learn best by jumping in and doing. So, don't wait to change the world. Now is the time to start and you are as ready as you need to be to make a difference in the world.
