"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." - Jim Rohn
It was the American author and speaker Jim Rohn who wrote: "Most people want to change the world to improve their lives, but the world they need to change first is the one inside themselves."
Everyone has an opinion on what is wrong with the world, yet few will do the work to improve their own lives.
It is easy to draw attention to what is wrong in the world because on one level it is frustrating to observe these conditions and stand back while they take place.
I often remind myself and others, the world has existed for 4.54 billion years and is much older and wiser than us.
We have existed for a minor part in that timeline and conditions weren't always ideal, in fact history shows conditions were less than idyllic.
So, a Utopian paradise needn't exist for us to be happy. We can still thrive despite the unrest in the world because outside conditions aren't as bad as you think they are.
If you want to change reality start with yourself first and attend to your own personal development. In doing so, problems give way to solutions and no longer affect you.
Jim Rohn: "If we all live the richest life possible, it's personally fulfilling, but it also changes the world."
