You can inspire the change you want to see in others.













If you don't know it by now, news flash... RELATIONSHIPS are about compromise.

Yet depending on our approach, we'll sometimes feel like we ended up with the short end of the stick.

But did you know that there are only two ways to change people?

You can either accomplish it by changing yourself or by inspiring change through your own example.

As it turns out, it is much easier and more productive to change yourself than it is to change another person.

If you don’t like a certain "characteristic" of someone you love, you have to change the way you perceive that characteristic.

This is really all about acceptance.

It's about inspiring change through your own example.

Just think of all the change that some great spiritual leaders have caused.

Some that quickly come to mind are Mother Theresa, or MLK Jr., and Ghandi… all of them had dramatic impacts on the lives of millions of people.

The changes they brought about were not through force or anyone's submission.

They used their actions and words to light pathways of truth, that inspired radical change.

Inspiring change in others may seem difficult.

But if you don't try and change the situation who will?

I think you can -  if anyone can... you are more infinitely powerful then you give yourself credit.

Make it a great dia!
