Be a Good in the World

by Susyn on May 8, 2015

Do you ever wonder how can you change the world for the better in the technological age where hashtags, likes and filtered landscapes take up most of your free time?

BeAGoodInTheWorld_approved copyMy publisher and friend, Brenda Knight has got the answer for you in her new guide to kindness and spreading joy, Be a Good in the World: 365 Days of Good Deeds, Inspired Ideas and Acts of Kindness.

Here’s an excerpt:

May 9:  Do the Thing You Think You Cannot Do

My friend Clare Cooley practices this courageous philosophy and now teaches others how to “Imagine a Day.” Clare is probably the ultimate autodidact; she had to drop out of school pretty early to take care of family members. This has not stopped her from learning and doing anything she sets her mind to, from design, filmmaking, and painting to crafting, writing, and music. One of Clare’s most spectacular gifts is her show-stopping skate dancing and there are many YouTube videos that strangers have taped and uploaded of her whirling and twirling. Clare, who chose to not allow economic difficulties and a lack of formal education prevent her from succeeding in life, has gone on to show her ceramics and naturalist paintings in museums and galleries around the country. She says, “Lack of imagination is the only limitation and fear creates self-doubt.” In her teaching, she helps people get out of “fear mode” and unlock the power of imagination. You can see her beautiful artwork at

I urge you to Imagine a Day—pick something you always wanted to do, but were afraid to try. Painting, French cookery, playing piano, singing, learning a foreign language, yoga, rock-climbing, ballroom dancing, pottery, snorkeling—something that speaks to you on a profound level but scares you just a little. Find a class or barter with someone who is an expert to whom you can teach something, and dive right in.

I can assure you that Be a Good in the World will motivate you with easy ways to help others and give back, as it sparks a new sense of belonging and boosts your happiness. Learn to be a good in the world to help others, to help the planet, to help yourself!

Favorite Quotes:

“Studies are proving that people who say they have a clear purpose live longer, have healthier lives, they’re happier, have more connection in relationships. There is all this data on the decreased level of heart attacks and lower levels of Alzheimer’s and depression in people who are living on purpose.”

“Purpose is an evolutionary process. It is evolving, shifting and growing. Our intention with the blueprint that it is a mini-guidebook to come back to again and again to refresh your purpose.”

“The 4 Steps of the Purpose Activation Blueprint:

  1. Know Your Purpose
  2. Build Your Purpose Support Team
  3. Connect Your Purpose to Serving Others
  4. Put Your Purpose into Action”

“My definition of purpose is,The act of giving my authentic self (my true essence) along with my gifts and talents to the world…in service to something bigger than myself.”

“Men forget to claim their “being” state – that they are powerful, wise, kind, and compassionate. There is a kind of re-shaping for men that they can be in this essence. They can naturally and effortlessly give their gifts. A light goes off and they realize that they don’t have to try so hard, they can be, exude this essence, and embody it, and of course then move this into action to have impact in the world.”
