"Be the change you want to see in the world.”

A great saying and a good message that I received this morning, and suddenly I realised that this unknown story has been told several times to us. Perhaps this is yet another reminder to make sure we know what we are searching for, otherwise easily lose off track from the world we live in …

I wanted to change the world...

When I was a young man, I wanted to change the world. I found it was difficult to change the world, so I tried to change my nation. When I found I couldn't change the nation, I began to focus on my town. I couldn't change the town and as an older man, I tried to change my family.

Now, as I grown older, I realize the only thing I can change is myself, and suddenly I realize that if long ago I had changed myself, I could have made an impact on my family. My family and I could have made an impact on our town. Their impact could have changed the nation and I could indeed have changed the world."
