Travel outside your comfort zone...

If your picture of the human existence only comes from America, you need to see the world live and in-person. Here's some benefits of seeing the third world:

You will more greatly appreciate our level of prosperity in America
You will be thankful for American infrastructures
You will be challenged to learn another language
You will see that machismo is expected of men
You will see how well women can treat men
You will eat great food
You will see abject poverty
You will see some of the happiest people living simple lives
You will see smiling children who have never played a video game
You will reconsider your personal quest for material possessions
You will see that family/friends, a simple meal, plus some music equals a great party
