Be the Change You Want
You can only change yourself. So like Mahatma Gandhi said; "Be the change you want to see in the World!"
Mahatma Gandhi understood the need for sound principles that he could explain to ordinary people. He also had to personally demonstrate those principles in his life. In modern business language he knew he had to "walk the talk".
Denial is the source of most of our problems. We simply don't see what's plainly in front of us. For instance in self reported surveys, people express very high rates of satisfaction for themselves, in situations what are clearly beyond control. In order to change one must believe that change is not only desirable, but possible. Change requires giving up a former perspective and adopting a new one. That demands energy and Commitment and a willingness to venture into the black hole of an uncertain future.
Change takes time, usually years, not weeks. During that time we need support, friends, mentors, coaches, lovers, and visible means of financial maintenance.
Un-learning is as important as learning, all the things that we know that are not valid hold us back. It doesn't matter how long it takes, what's at stake is your whole life.
Only you can give your own life meaning, you choose. As Carl Jung said, "When you stop making the effort, your batteries go flat, and life loses it's glory."
Change; Conquering a Nation
Most believe that, to conquer a nation and its people, you must defeat them with military force and physically occupy their land. Nothing could be further from the truth! To conquer a nation and its people, you need only to change its social order, discredit its institutions, reinterpret its laws and rewrite its history. With this accomplished, its culture is destroyed, and its people conquered.
