Practice the Change You Wish to See in the World


Life is a practice, and what you choose to practice is what makes up your character. It’s worth considering what you value in life, and then making an intention and plan to live alongside those values. Ghandi’s wise words can inspire us to: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

Consider how simple it really is:

If you want to be more grateful in life, practice being grateful.

If you want to be confident, practice confidence.

If you want to be more mindful, practice mindfulness.

If you want to be more loving, practice loving yourself and others.

If you want to be more forgiving and let go of stress-laden emotional burdens, practice forgiveness.

If you want to live essential happiness ingredients such as compassion and generosity, practice compassion and generosity.

While simple on paper, in practice it’s a little more difficult to live this way.

    This was perfect. It’s the first article I read upon opening my email once getting settled at my desk I will surely practice this. Thank you for the wonderful affirmations.

    Happier each passing moment,

    This is so true. Mind can be mastered to follow our own orders. To silence the negative dialogue which perpetually tempts us to digress from our paths, practicing the positive re-affirmation is so important. Once the mind, gets used to these re-affirmations, it becomes easier to reach our aim. Image boards, journaling and verbal affirmations help a lot in this process.

    If happiness or success was merely a matter of will, we’d all be doing it.

      It isn’t so simple as you’ve observed. The blogger acknowledged this in the post.
      I have found that you must take initial steps to change your environment and find the right mix of people to help you make the changes. But you also have to be willing to let the familiar landmarks of your identity and life literally wash away. The alternative is to die without having really lived. That is the real choice.
