I have superpowers. You have superpowers. We all have superpowers. *cue Goodburger theme*

You forgot about the most important of them all. You forgot that you can change the world.

It’s simple, really. Attitude is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you see negativity and hatred in the world, you will encounter it more often. If you choose to consistently seek out the silver lining, the light, the positivity that is present in each and every day… Well, then you’ll see your world changing in front of your eyes.

This isn’t quite what I mean, however. Yes, you can change your own world by changing your perception of it, but your true ability lies elsewhere.

Now, more than ever, our world needs people exuding relentless positivity. The world needs people conscious of their ability to affect others’ happiness who are willing to put in a concerted and consistent effort to be a positive force in the lives of their friends, family, and even strangers.

You have that superpower.

You can remind people of the love and light in even the worst situations. You can share silly videos and make people laugh. You can make genuine connections with people you barely know. You can be vulnerable so others feel comfortable being vulnerable, so we can be more honest with each other. This in turn helps us see more clearly how very much the same we all are.

You forgot about your most important superpower, but the good news is that there are still so many ways you can help. There is a huge responsibility on all of our shoulders, and step one is recognizing the power that we have to change the world.

Now go out and change it.
