The selfish, selfless, synergy or the practice of paneugenesis which is done by creating interactions so everyone and everything benefits is something anyone can build into their life. Of course one of the greatest benefits is the self-worth or good feelings about oneself that is generated by creating such actions beyond the benefits afforded everyone and everything. In the TED presentation below by Aziz Abu Sarah he explains how tourism can make the world a better place – yes tourism!
The examples he provides supply excellent examples of how he is making the world better in his own unique way and may help you think how you could do it in your way. It is the action we take that provides the evidence about ourself we need to feel good. Happiness does not just happen nor is it the our default state. As Martin Seligman in Authentic Happiness, Flourishing and other publications & Tal Ben-ShaHar in Happier and other publications has shown, happiness has to be earned by doing something. Unhappiness on the other hand requires nothing. If you don’t do anything, unhappiness is the outcome most likely.
