Be the change you wish to see

The famous quote by Gandhi, ‘You must be the change you wish you see in the world.’ For many years, I haven’t fully understood the quote. Mainly because I didn’t care enough. In fact, I would say I used to be quite an indifferent person.

Until one day, for whatever reason, I started to care. I started to realise there are things in my own world that are not doing well.

So what do we do? Out of human nature, I started off with complaining. But when one evaluates (click here to see my previous post) the situation, one would soon realise that another ounce of complaint would not change the situation, if not make it worse. In fact, since I am in the world, I am guilty of the undesirable situation.

Rather than complaining and indulging in self-pity, take ownership and be the change you wish to see.

So I started to BE the change.

You can do something today, to change the world you’re in.
