You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
– Mahatma Gandhi
Meaning of this quote:
The world can not change on its own, It takes a collective effort, be an example by changing yourself first and inspire others to do the same.
The thing to remember is that you cannot inspire others to do things if you don’t first do them yourself. If you want to change something, you should start from your side.
For example, don’t complain about the traffic, In case, you want to change it then first bring the change from your side by using public transport. You must be the change you wish to see in the world, meaning you must use public transport before you expect others to do the same.
Revolution happens when everyone takes up the responsibility on their own. It’s a collective effort that makes a difference.
We are the change that we seek
Change does not happen on its own or by waiting for it, It happens when we start the change from our own side and everyone starts doing that collectively.
Be the example you want to set. set your own example first and sooner or later people will follow you and that’s how change happens.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
– Barack Obama
And that’s why self-improvement and self-realization are the keys.
It all starts within us, In order to set a positive impact we much improve and live that way. we can’t make the world happier or healthy by being sad or unfit.
We have to change ourselves first before we can expect the same from the others.
For example, It’s impossible to help someone control their intake of sugar if you yourself consume it excessively. To make a difference, you have to change yourself first, you have to lead by example in order to push others to do the same.
Practice what you preach, we can’t expect the change if we can’t change ourselves first.
Be the change you want to see in the others
It’s all about setting up our own good example which inspires people to follow the same.
Andy Warhol, once said: “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.“
Always strive to do the right things, let whatever you do add value to others, by doing the right things at right time you can influence people to bring more positivity.
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
– Leo Tolstoy
Changing the world together is possible, but we must improve ourselves first in order to do so.
We should do the right things, not just for ourselves, but for others too. kindness is the language, by doing the right things for others we can make a positive impact.
As George Bernard Shaw once quoted: “Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.“
The key is to keep improving ourselves, strive to be better than what we were yesterday, by collectively doing this we can change the world.
