Life Lessons

Want to drastically lower the rates of crime, mental health problems, and physical health problems across the country and the world?

Create a course on LIFE at every grade level that teaches kids how to handle stress in healthy ways, how to communicate effectively, the role nutrition and physical activity play in mood and health, and how to manage money.

It is the easiest, least expensive, and most far-reaching solution to most of the biggest problems we face–because schools are the one place to reach entire generations at the same time.

If enough people contacted school boards and lawmakers, things would change.

How Can We Change the World?

By looking at the lesson in other people’s behavior and seeing ourselves in them.

Seeing ourselves as separate is the root of all loneliness and hate. Was what the parents did in the college cheating scandal right? No. It robbed their children of the chance to learn on their own merit and stole rightfully earned entry from deserving students. In my opinion, that’s the tragedy.

But have you ever wanted the best for your children or wanted people to think well of you? Admission to a prestigious university reflects well on both the children and the parents. No matter how much money those parents had, they still didn’t think they were good enough for their peers. So, they attempted to buy self-worth for themselves and their children—not understanding that you can’t buy self-worth. It comes from within.

We all want to be valued. Social media is a platform in which we can lift others up. You have the power to make a difference in someone else’s life every time you sign on. Look for yourself in everyone you meet, and you will see we are far more alike than we are different.
