Change starts and ends with Me. We can’t change others only ourselves. That is why we focus on our own life.
“We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Want to change your life? Start with Openness. Each day we add another tool to our tool belt. One year later, we have 365 new habits and a transformed life…but, none of that happens without being Open to Change. If we are partially open, we may have 100 new habits to live by…great, but limited by our own minds getting in the way…still trying to do things our own way. Get out of your own way and get all 365 habits that some of the best and brightest have used to get where they are!
