Greater compassion and understanding is encouraged when we consciously act in ways that will inspire and motivate others to do the same. Rather than trying to convince others to change their behaviors, choose to let our actions serve as a powerful example of what is possible. Accept and embrace others for who they are, regardless of any differences. Doing this puts more attention on our similarities and encourages others to do the same. Be compassionate and tolerant towards others to create positive changes that make the world a better place.
