A tombstone at Westminster Abby has the following written by an Anglican Priest from the 1500s.
” When I was young and free and my Imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world.
As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world will not change…so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country, but it too seemed immovable.
As I grow into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.
And now I realize as I lie on my deathbed, if I had only change myself first, then by example I might have changed my family. From their inspiration and encouragement, I would have been able to better my country.
And who knows, I might have even changed the world”
If you want to change the world, you start by changing yourself.
You change yourself by asking.
If you don’t like something, ask.(ask, seek and knock) how to change it.
Ask God, ask others, ask yourself.
With each question you will receive an illumination, an idea or the help, assistance that allows you to change in small ways.
“Every positive movement, every breakthrough, every extraordinary idea, every fortune made, always begins with Asking.”..
Mark Victor Hansen (in his new book, Ask!). It is only by learning How to Ask and What to Ask that you can create your most extraordinary life, manifest your greatest blessings, and cross the bridge from your dreams to your ultimate destiny.
Make that change!
