If You Don’t Like What You See, Then Change Who You Choose to Be

You’ve heard the quote before I am sure, “Be the change you desire to see in the world.” There is controversy over who actually coined this phrase.  However, regardless of who said it, if we choose to activate it we will see that when we make the steps to change, the world changes with us.

What do I mean by that?  Glad you asked.  Too often we do not like what we see according to who we choose to be based on our own ideas, thoughts, and opinions.   If we make the changes in our lives first, then we can set an example that will inspire others to emulate.  Now, don’t get discouraged if you do not see the whole world swing around 180 degrees overnight.  However, be assured that you will see a ripple effect take place. 

Instead of waiting for someone to do something or procrastinating to bring a solution,  be courageous and take the first step forward.  There is a leader inside of you.  Be encouraged and begin now to think of ways to improve and then lead yourself to take the first step demonstrating that improvement.  Brian Tracy, a  Canadian-American motivational speaker and author ofthe book, Eat That Frog, says, “Leaders talk about solutions.  Followers talk about problems.”  What are some community issues that currently effect you and your family?  What are some ways that you can bring improvement to a real- world problem?  What ideas, skill sets, talents, or abilities do you  have that could benefit others around you?

Maybe a teacher needs extra school supplies in their classroom.  Maybe a neighbor needs a ride to the store.  Maybe someone ill needs a care package or help with meal plans for their family.  Maybe a single parent needs childcare for a much-needed night out.  Maybe a senior adult would appreciate some help with lawncare.  Are you starting to get the picture?  It does not take looking very far to see real-world needs from your own backyard. 

 See, when you begin to accompany simple thought with great action, you can see that you are more than just another person in the crowd of those who see but do not choose to be.  You are capable of greater things.  There is more to you than what you see. 

 So be encouraged and realize that you can have a better world.  It is already better because you, a solution, are in it.  Here’s to being the change!  Let’s keep growing and going.  It’s a good time to be you!

Peace and Joy,
