One might think that he must first perfect himself before he can try to perfect the world. But Torah commands us to transform this world into a beautiful garden for G-d, and this is a top priority. There is no conflict here: G-d empowers every person with the ability to simultaneously elevate himself as well as others - as my father-in-law, the Rebbe, proved in his own life, and through those who follow in his footsteps.

The argument: "Maybe I am not yet ready for the mission..." is groundless. The task does not require anything new, so there is nothing to be "ready" for. We must merely restore the world to its original state, as when it was first created. When a Jew fulfills the 613 commandments, or a non-Jew fulfills the Seven Noahide Laws, he restores the world - and himself - to the natural state of holiness as at the time of creation.
