We all have great hopes and dreams of changing the world, but we often forget the change starts with us. You see, it is much easier to try to change others. So we ignore our own faults and failures, but judge and criticize others for theirs.
There is a simple answer. Just focus on being the best version of yourself. Figure out what that means and what you need to do to get there. This picture represents how I work on that.
I need alone time with God every morning and time to plan my day. That gets me centered and focused. I do this before I check my phone, Facebook or email, because those things get me distracted very easily. I don't feel guilty for taking this time, because it makes me a better, more loving person.
And it helps me keep the fact that I am here to do God's work at the front of my mind. This is so powerful, because my kids see this and are learning from it. That is also changing the world...So, however it is that you want to change the world, I hope you will start with you.
