If you want to change the world, start with yourself. It is easier to tell other people to change than to tell yourself to change. People will change only when they see you changing. If they don’t see you doing what you are asking them to do, they will not change. If you want to move the world, let the process begins with you. Without that, it is not going to happen.
“If you want to change the world, start with yourself.”
Change is a way of life. The only thing that is constant in life is change. Change is what we do everyday. Whether you know it or not, you are changing everyday. So, if you want to move the world, you MUST first move yourself. If you want to change the world, your life, your business, your relationships, you MUST first change yourself. If not, it is a waste of time.
Leo Tolstoy said, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.” Because it is easier to tell people what to do than to tell yourself to do the same thing. But life does not work that way. If you think of changing the world, you must first think of changing yourself. You must first think of changing your environment. You must first think of changing your life. The only way you can tell a good story is when you have experienced it.
Gandhi said the same thing in a different way. He said: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Don’t wish for someone to bring change to you. It is not going to happen. If you want things to change, go out there and change it. If you want your life to change, go out there and meet success, and your life will change.
If you want to be successful, be a change agent.
