Almost everyone claims they would like to become better versions of themselves. If they could, they would become healthier, kinder and more aware of the nature around them. And yes, it is easier to say something than to actually do it. A path to kindness, health and a humane attitude towards the environment is a rocky one. People do not like to sacrifice their comfort for the sake of, let us say, environment. Those who, for example, own boats, might only take into account the financial aspect of it. When it comes to the cost of antifouling a boat, they take the cheaper option instead of a greener one such as ultrasonic boat antifouling. Those who, maybe, want something, demand it rather than ask for it. As it is often harder to be what we consider a ‘worse’ or ‘not as good’ of a person, we seldom make constructive attempts to actually improve.
If you truly want to become a better person, you will more likely succeed if you start small. If we return to the previous examples, you can stop taking finances as the first priority if you own a boat. If the cost of antifouling is a bit higher for ultrasonic boat antifouling, which is a more environmentally friendly option, you should consider it. Ultrasonic boat antifouling is not a huge chance and it will not drastically impact the cost of antifouling a boat. It will, however, definitely count as a step in the right direction. Similarly, if you desire something, ask for it kindly. You are more likely to get it and you might make someone’s day. It’s amazing how much little things like these matter and how fast such little improvements turn into bigger ones.
