Be the change you want to see in the world. What does that mean and why does it matter? Large-scale movements are important and powerful, but far too often change seems too out of reach to compel us to act. I’m here to remind you that it is not too far out of reach. It starts with you, the individual. What you put out there will reflect onto the world. If you project maliciousness and resentment, it will follow you and contaminate the people you meet. But the same goes for love and kindness.
What I’ve learned from meeting people around the world is how we all have more in common than differences. Everyone has flaws and their own personal demons. But I think the more we see each other as common humans and not ‘those’ people or people from ‘that’ place, the more sympathy and compassion we can have for one another and show/act with understanding; and in turn reflect that upon the people we encounter.
Imagine if everyone was just 10% kinder to the people they meet everyday, how much of a difference that would make on the world, the country, or even the local community. If it changes only one person’s outlook and mood on the day, that person may just carry it on to the next person they meet. This is how we defeat widespread loneliness and alienation. So when you think of reflection, think about the person you want to reflect out onto the world. Now go out there be the change you want to see in the world 🙏 #MondayMotivation #Reflection
