Start With Yourself

Changing the world is a daunting task, especially when it can sometimes seem that there is a new problem arising each moment. The place to begin is within you.

According to Gandhi, arguably one of the most peaceful beings in the history of humanity, there are ten rules to changing the world. The rather interesting fact about these rules is that each of these them is something we can adjust internally that will show positive effects externally.

Rather than synthesize Gandhi’s rules, I would encourage you to go read the article, which can be found here: http://www.dailygood.org/story/466/gandhi-s-10-rules-for-changing-the-world-henrik-edberg/.

One of my favorite quotes of Gandhi’s is, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” This quote is embodied in his first rule, which discusses how changing your outlook, perspective, and attitude can have profound effects.

It is easy to read the article and get very excited and motivated to make the necessary changes in the moment. The important thing to remember, however, is consistency.

It’s no secret that change is not easy. Making major adjustments to your person does not come over night. It is about dedication to the overall goal. If you truly want to make positive changes within your own life that will make positive impacts on others, you have to stick to the process to see results.

If you want to make changes of the like, but are finding a hard time doing so, bookmark the URL to Gandhi’s article. Look back at it once a week. Write down some of the quotes from the article that speak to you and motivate you to be consistent and diligent in achieving your goals.
