Quote #33, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #33....

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself."

-Leo Tolstoy-

Doesn't it all start there? I remember giving advice to someone else on what they should do to improve themselves. Someone pointed out to me .. what makes you think you can change that person when you can't even change your own habits? Hmm... good point.

I believe Gandhi once said.. "be the change you want to see in the world". In other words, take charge and change what YOU can control... yourself. Set good examples and perhaps others will follow.

We've all told our kids, do as I say, not as I do. Here is a newsflash: they are watching what you do!

Thats my view.....WHAT SAY YOU?

Yes! I once got to experience a whole seminar that was called "Be the Change!" It helped us see that the best place to start is with YOURSELF! (that's the only one you really CAN change, afterall!) MODEL the changes you hope to see in others! Give it a try! Mick
