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.
Obstacles are not designed to break you, but to make you stronger.
There is no obstacle that you cannot overcome. If you want to overcome obstacles in your way, you must first overcome the obstacles inside you. The negative thoughts in your mind are the biggest obstacles standing in your way. And they are the hardest to remove. If you can remove the negative thoughts in your mind, it will be easier for you to face whatever is stopping you from moving forward. You can clean up your mind of the negative thoughts by replacing them with positive thoughts. It is important to do this because you cannot be thinking in negative ways inside and be acting in positive ways outside. That will not work for a long time. What you are feeling inside should match your behavior. If not, you are in trouble.
Conquer yourself first so that you can face your obstacles. If you have not taken care of yourself, taking care of your obstacles will be a joke. If you want to experience real success, you must be ready to fight. You must be ready to face obstacles. You cannot succeed if you are not ready to face obstacles that are standing in your way. They are going to be there until you removed them. Successful people don’t run away from obstacles, they embrace obstacles. They learn from obstacles. They welcome obstacles.
Obstacles are in your way for a reason: to make you stronger. There is glory when you overcome obstacles. Overcoming obstacles is the only way to success. If you want to be successful, you must overcome your obstacles.
You cannot avoid obstacles. They are here to stay. Whenever you face obstacles, instead of giving up on your dreams, just change your strategies, just change your path to reach your dreams, just change your direction to reach your goals. Don’t quit. Don’t give up.
Face your obstacles, don’t run away from them, and you will defeat them.
