Dale Carnegie once said that anyone could become a great public speaker if they were angry enough. It’s where ideas were born, it comes even from our little frustrations about life.
That’s where great leaders, statesmen, group advocacies came from. They are consistently mad about the world regarding their advocacies such us human rights, pets, global warming, good governance and etc. and they wish it was different making them set apart to make a difference in the world.
For example, in Christianity, because sin was rampant during that time, God sent his son to the world to redeem us from it. And when Jesus was sent from heaven above, he made a huge difference in the world. He taught us about morality, discipline, praying, loving one another and the 10 commandments.
And these commandments is still being used in the laws that governing the nations throughout the world. Not just that, even atheists, and other religions borrowed the concept of love, morality, compassion, and forgiveness from Christianity and they will not admit it for sure, but it was the truth.
Now I don’t normally write about my complaints about the world but for the sake of answering “What really makes me angry about the world?” and if you’re curious about it, let me share it with you.
1. We are programmed to think negatively.
I don’t know if this is happening in other parts of the world, but in my country the Philippines, you cannot find a Filipino who have no complaints about the country. Worst, they are good at complaining but they don’t make any steps to help it, they often leave the country and choose to live outside of it.
The worst is that the media companies are using their powers to promote negativity. They are doing it by reporting biased news, and personal attacks against the government. For me, they make the situation even worse. Instead of bringing hope to their countrymen, they love to promote hopelessness.
In this kind of culture that being shaped by the media companies, we should stand and promote positivity. As a writer, I want to make a difference in the world by writing what is uplifting and encouraging.
2. We are not treated equally.
I cannot tolerate racism, naming and shaming. We even had those comedians who make fun of others just to gain people’s attention. It is risky, even offensive. The best humor is that you don’t even need to shame others, yourself is enough to make people laugh.
3. We are selfish by nature.
Have you noticed a child that he can’t give something to his or her playmate? Parents don’t teach children to become selfish, it’s our innate nature.
The solution for selfishness is to give. To live a life that overflows. Don’t hold back, give it away!
What about you? What really makes you angry about the world?
