Be the Change

~ Be the change you wish to see in the world ~

Realize that if you are the change you wish to see, that you
are fighting against the current and that you will often fall.
You must get up and keep going. Change does not come
easily, even to those who want it. You must be an advocate,
an inspiration, a model. You must be willing to take the hurt,
the pain and the knocks. You must sacrifice for the greater
good. You must be willing to make your path, the path for
everyone to follow. You must lose your ego and give your
love. You must trust that you are right in your endeavor.
You will be tired; you will be hurt; you will feel much pain –
but the joy of seeing loving change in one person’s eyes will
override all the misery you may have felt.

The big picture will sometimes become blurred – you will
falter, you will stumble along your path. You will wonder if
your fight is worth the agony – it will be. Do good – strive to
help others – strive to show others they can do good as well.
Learn self-sacrifice. Put others before you. Make your life
something to be proud of, something to stand for, something
good and full of love.

Recognize your faults – learn from them.

Teach – listen to what you teach; we often teach what we
most need to learn.

Love – be love.

Know you can always be better and you will always have
more to learn.

Never back down.

Lead and hope, but do not expect, that others will follow.

Never use force.

What would have happened if the greats had stopped … if
they’d gotten tired and given up?

Mother Teresa
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Where would we be if they had given up on us?
What will the world become if we give up on it?
