Change the World by Changing Yourself

 

Each of us has the ability to change the world, if first we change ourselves. 

Changing the world seems daunting. However, the small changes you make each day eventually lead to big changes. Little by little, as you change yourself, you will become confident. You will become strong. You will become brave. Without even knowing it, you may change the world.

 

Little Ripples Have Grand Effects

If you have ever watched a ripple in a pond expand, or heard one person’s laugh result in a room full of laughter, you know little actions lead to monumental movements.

Can you attest to the ripple in the pond effect? When you reflect on the people who have come into your life and inspired you to work hard to change yourself for the better, do you believe seemingly small actions have amazingly grand effects? I do.

If we all do a little, change a little, become a little better, and inspire others to do the same, together we can change the world. Join me by making a small ripple in the pond.

And if the world is too grand a goal for today, be inspired to look inward. Change yourself. Believe.

Are you ready to change the world? I am.
