Our Moral Compass: Use Your Hammer To Shape The World

“The world is more malleable than you think, and it’s waiting for you to hammer it into shape.”

-Bono

There are times in our lives where we might feel like we don’t have control over anything. Worse yet depending on how things maybe going, we may fall into a pit of despair in thinking that the cards we may have been dealt are stacked in the dealer’s favor instead of our own. However, lead singer of the band U2 Bono believes differently. In today’s quote Bono reminds that the world has the ability to be shaped and molded into whatever our hopes, dreams and desires are.

We have that power. We have our own hammer that is just waiting to be used. And the beauty about the world being malleable is that despite us continually hammering the world into how we see it, it will never crack or break. In other words we can never destroy it. If we need to reshape things we just take out that imaginary hammer and hammer out what may need fixing in our own lives. We have that control. We just have to decide to use it.

We have the choice to make the world the way we see it. And although we may make the wrong choice from time to time in shaping the world, we always have the choice to fix it. So what are you waiting for? Grab that hammer and start shaping the world as you would like it to be.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
