What is my obligation to society and the world?

I am a person that was born in good health, to a great family, a relatively high IQ, and with financial means and connections. I have struggled my entire life with feeling that have not done my part to contribute to the solving the problems of the world. Is there a TED scholar in this community that can help me come up with a realistic goal that would allow me to feel satisfied with my contribution to the world? I would love it if someone could come up with a talk relating to this subject.

    Oct 8 2013: I would not say that I'm a sacrifice boy, and I from a poor village of China, I don't have much money, or even a good job, all I need to do is get more money for my family to stand a chance to own a better life. and to social contribution, I think I want to let some one know that, if you are poor when you are a child, that's not your fault, but if you are poor thouthout your life, that's your fault. And can I be friends of your? I want to know your culture. can your send a email to me? my email address is marco.van@hotmail.com
