Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Thus, to indeed make a positive difference, we must always begin with ourselves. Our institutions, corporations, and communities are yearning for sterling, creative, and courageous individuals more than ever during this unique moment.
While challenging days confront our humanity — amid such darkness and uncertainty, we as change agents must keep the light of hope, faith, and belief ignited. Each day we are bestowed 86,400 seconds of unique opportunities to be a better person than we were the day before. We must seek to produce solutions and strategic answers for ourselves and those we connect with during this time.
It is our responsibility to emotionally bond, inspire, teach, nurture, and transform. Yet, we must not do it at the expense of our mental health and wellness. May the following living-by-design tactics pave the way forward as we manage ourselves and others.
- Forgive more
- Talk less, say more
- Be less judgmental
- Value time over money
- Stand in your truth
- Go deep into the weeds
- Challenge the status quo
- Don’t ever be unprepared
- Maintain a radical vision
- Never swerve from progress
So let’s ask ourselves, if now is not the time to act, pivot, and evolve, then when is? Remember, we never need a title to be positive difference-makers. When we make the world better for others, we make it better for ourselves.
Smile, be unique, and be you.
Affirmations surprisingly helped me

It is simple but effective
In the moment right now
I feel my body overflowing with approval, safety and kindness
